Made-with-Love
Temple and Shipman, as I read it, is a work of literature, not just a crime novel. It explores the issue of justice in contemporary American racial relations, and does so by articulating the full intellectual and emotional range of this issue. It gives voice to perennial concerns about justice, which, with a few modifications of circumstance, are the same everywhere. And it tells the story very well. I could not put the book down, and even when I was twenty pages from the end I could not imagine whether it would end with Shipman desisting, with everything poised for several possible conclusions, or for the inexorable working out of tragedy. I cannot imagine that so fair a work of literature will not come to the attention of a very large audience.

Donald Pfarrer has created two memorable characters in Jeffery Temple, a white "has been" pro football player now turned cop, and John Shipman, a black businessman and Koren War veteran who has pulled himself up by his own bootstraps. The two become adversaries in a drama that becomes the ultimate moral test of their characters. Temple and Shipman is a fast-paced account of yet another tragic "racial incident" in American society. This unforgettable story has a broad appeal because we have seen many of the characters in different forms on the nightly news.
