the last book I ever read A Rage in Harlem: A Harlem Detectives Novel by Chester Himes, excerpt one)

from A Rage in Harlem (Harlem Detectives Series Book 1) by Chester Himes:

“Now I make you a rich man, Jackson.”

“Thank the Lord. Amen,” Jackson said, crossing himself.

He wasn’t a Catholic. He was a Baptist, a member of the First Baptist Church of Harlem. But he was a very religious young man. Whenever he was troubled he crossed himself just to be on the safe side.
