Excerpt
THE Hudson River was a broad expanse of darkness. The hour was long past midnight. A haze of fog drifted low on the surface of the river. Nothing was visible except the hazy pier lights of Manhattan and the fainter gleams that twinkled on the New Jersey side. Through that protecting darkness a speedboat moved downstream. The boat was painted jet-black. The men in the boat were black, too. There were four men. Burned cork had darkened their faces so that they looked like colored minstrels. But there was nothing comic about the gleam of their watchful eyes. These men were criminals. Their speedboat was a floating arsenal.
