Abstract

In Bill Fletcher Jr.'s first novel, The Man Who Fell from the Sky, the sleepy Cape Cod town of Osterville has blood on its hands. In this murder mystery, Fletcher digs through layers of racism in Southern Massachusetts to uncover more than the killer's identity. The novel compellingly exposes the racism of society, turning its victims against each other.
