#BookReview: Dark Child - Travis Hunter

Black babies are missing in Atlanta and no one seems to notice or care. In Dark Child Travis Hunter weaves the story of Urban Brown, a white man raised in a brown world; his biracial sister, Jamillah; and the foster mother that raised them.

Once a promising athlete, Jamillah is a crackhead looking for her next big score. When she comes across a black market for babies, she's sure that if she can just sell one baby, she'll have enough money to get herself into rehab.

Urban has protected his younger sister since their parents died at the hands of the police. But when she shows up on his doorstep demanding the baby he rescued from her and a crack house, he shuts her out of his life, determined to raise the baby she's left behind.

Young black girls are being pushed to give up their babies and when they refuse, they're taken. With the assistance of Priest, a cop criminals love to hate, and Jethro, a small town cop from a nearby town, Operation Dark Child is about to come crumbling down and you'll never believe who's involved.
