The place: a future New York City torn by racial tension and ripe for rebellion. The revolutionaries have high technology and careful planning on their side, their soldiers are well trained and sworn to secrecy, and their plans are unsuspected . . . until the Night of Power. Caught in the middle of the insurrection are Russell and Dena Grant and their daughter Jennifer, a 13-year-old whose genius-level intelligence saves her lifer more than once after insurrection breaks out. As an interracial couple, the Grants face the problems every couple does-but the Night of Power becomes the ultimate test, of their loyalty to each other and to their separate races.
