Book Title: Father Divine's Bikes
Author Name: Steve Bassett
Book Synopsis: FATHER DIVINE'S BIKES exposes the dark underbelly of 1945 Newark; a city that boomed during World War II but finds itself unable to cope with the peace that brings joblessness, despair and crime. As deeply-entrenched white enclaves are squeezed by the mass migration of blacks, escape routes for poor ethnic whites rapidly close. Meanwhile, two Catholic altar boys living in a world ripe for grifters, like Father Divine, soon learn that his promise of heaven on earth has hellish consequences.
