Detroit was a ruin. Burnt out. Rusted through. Dark and dangerous.
But one man, reclusive billionaire Conrad Brenner saw beyond the dust and ashes. Stepping forward with the vision and the cash, he would wipe away the rubble and fear, replacing them with pride, success and progress.

Resurrection had arrived. It was what the people of Detroit always spoke of, dreamed of and prayed for...wasn't it?

Co-authors Richard Gloff and Bill Lane have crafted a cautionary tale about the social morality of 21st Century America. FROM THESE BONES is controversial, unexpected, and a fast-paced read. America will be talking about FROM THESE BONES.
