Darktown by Thomas Mullen.
Grappling with race issues, Atlanta hires its first black officers. They are then faced with a crime where a black woman goes missing and was last seen in a car with a white man. The description compares the tone of the novel to Dennis Lehane. It is "a vivid, smart, intricately plotted crime saga that explores the issues of race, law enforcement, and the uneven scales of justice" .
