Point of Darkness brings Sammy to America - and into the streets of a New York darker, more complex, and more dangerous than most people know. Coming to the city to deliver a message from a dying friend to his daughter, Sammy finds himself once again entranced by the mixed Afro-Caribbean community of Jamaica, Queens, where many of his West Indies family and friends have relocated. It is a community of laughter and friendship, but also of underground scheming, bucking the system, and danger. What Sammy was planning as a quick trip turns into an intricate and terrifying chase as, first, his friends daughter disappears - and, then, he gets woven into an expanding web of murder, sex, and sourly corrupt New York City politics, winding into a terrifying cross-country chase.
