FORGIVE ME DOCTOR is the story of a northern town that explodes in what appeared to be an act of racial violence, but in the exciting climax, it is discovered that the outbreak is the creation of a corrupt cop who wanted to cover up a murder.
Middle aged men and women, who are nervously watching the chasm between the races widening in their community once again, will view this book as not only relevant, but important.
FORGIVE ME DOCTOR is book two in a trilogy of the sixties. Only a writer deeply involved in the racial turbulence of that era could produce the dialogue and create the true

Dave Truskoff was a security guard for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference
during the Selma March. He was the voice of Delta Radio during the Mississippi March, and acted as liaison between the Black and Puerto Rican Coelition and the city of Harford during the 1969 riots.
