Long before Ferguson and Staten Island, Harvey was writing about the injustices in the judicial system. Paper Puzzle is a modern day Southern murder mystery that exposes the underbelly of the good ol’ boy network of power and judicial system abuse.
C. T. Vivian, a recent Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, and the Director of Affiliates for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference under Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., says that Harvey is a crafty author and is one of the best storytellers in the 21st century.
Harvey weaves tidbits of American history through this suspenseful tale. His character Dorsey Pitts and the manner in which he died at the hands of the State is eerily reminiscent of the death of Eric Gardner in Staten Island, New York.
