Dazed and bleeding, Brenda Martin stumbles into a city hospital and tells a shocking story: a man has hijacked her car, and her young son is asleep in the back seat. Frantic police descend on the housing projects, searching for the stolen child and tearing apart a neighbourhood that doesn't need an excuse to explode. Meanwhile, a young reporter hustles her way into the eye of the storm and a good cop is put in an impossible position. Soon all the pain, hope and madness of a heat-soaked city will come pouring out into the streets - because of a story that may be true, or may be the most horrifying lie of all...

'A hugely ambitious, searing novel ... Freedomland is a dazzling novel and makes for compulsive reading' Glasgow Herald 'A compelling portrait of America's flipside and a novel that obliges you (as Dickens did) to engage with it ... Not since Toni Morrison's Beloved have I read a new novel with such emotional force' Independent 'Taut and pulsating ... like Steve Bochco writing scripts for NYPD Blue, Price's work patrols the margins of the American underclass' Daily Express 'Richard Price has the soul of a poet, the ear of a screenwriter and the narrative ambition of a classic urban realist. His novels are sprawling, lyrical, down 'n' dirty accounts of those whom the American Dream has passed by' Arena
