Authored by Robert Rubenstein
The sequel to GHOST RUNNERS, THE WHITE BRIDGE is a dark historical tale, a much needed parody of the pathology of racism and its deadly consequences as the world marched to war-as vital as today's headlines, an anthem for change and a new radicalism. Ginger Lee is a smashing news reporter who chases down the architect of a murder and implicates the American ideal. Powerful fiction!

Currently, he teaches a college course for graduating seniors in advanced topics: the psychology of racism, "Bobby" hopes to complete a trilogy in the near future. A retired teacher and evaluator of children with special needs, "Ruby" swims three or four times a week. He travels frequently to the Southwest and likes being a minority among the Native-Americans.
