“In the same vein as best sellers such as Liza Mundy’s CODE GIRLS and Margot Lee Shetterly’s HIDDEN FIGURES, this new work from Carter presents the untold story of his grandmother Eunice Hunton Carter, the black female lawyer who prosecuted notorious mobster Lucky Luciano. With artful storytelling and a narrative-like delivery, Carter tells Eunice’s story in the best way possible, offering a compelling, unputdownable read with as much value in social history as legal appeal. Not to be missed.” Library Journal, starred review
