Clarence Abernathy, an Oregon columnist and suburban middle-class black, is dragged into a world of inner-city gangs, drugs, violence and racial conflict. Clarence's anger at injustices he cannot control pulls him onto turf that becomes more dangerous by the moment. Encouraged by fellow columnist Jake Woods, Clarence forges an unlikely partnership with Ollie Chandler, a white homicide detective. As the case unfolds questions of racial prejudice and misunderstanding rise to the surface. As unseen eyes watch from above, the urban terror that has robbed Clarence of loved ones and uprooted his faith in God now threatens to unleash its deadly violence on him.
In the footsteps of his best-selling novel Deadline, author Randy Alcorn tells an exciting story filled with drama. The characters are so real you'll never forget them.

As you become immersed in its riveting story, Dominion will make you laugh, cry and think.

This is one of the best audio books I have ever heard. I’m a Black woman, and either you grew up with Black people or you have some in you! The grandfather in the story reminded me of my grandfathers. Thank you for your depiction that we’re not all drug dealers, prostitutes, on welfare, or trying to cheat somebody. We have normal everyday families with jobs, school, going to church, and serving our country. I thoroughly enjoyed Dominion. -V.T.
