The Crown Lord, besides being a boldly written political thriller, is an important reflection on the genesis of racial animus in America. William Sirls has created a new optic on prejudice and bigotry and their relationship to power, economics, and human ego. Everyone who has unanswered questions and unaddressed concerns about racial equity must read this thrilling novel.

After a successful revolt in 1846 that reversed the roles of slaves and masters, modern-day America is now dominated by a wealthy, black ruling class and whites are dealing with decades of oppression and prejudice.

When his father, a civil rights attorney, is killed after defending a white man, seventeen-year-old Willie Gibbons, is forced to move to Michigan with his uncle and thrust into the heart of the racial divide. between the white underclass and the powerful and shadowy black supremacist group known as The Crown.

The search for his father’s killer lands Willie on the wrong side of  a powerful and shadowy black supremacist group known as The Crown, a dangerous place to be for any man—black or white.

The Crown Lord is a stark and jarring look at race, class, and the American Dream that will keep readers on edge.

Life lessons involving faith, grace, patience, and forgiveness are evident in his writing. He is the father of two and makes his home in southern California.
