    "The year is 1997, and five former Los Angeles police officers gather for lunch. They begin reminiscing about their assignments at 77th Street Division. They talk of racism, riots and their lives on the LAPD's strong blue line of silence. Two months before the 1965 Watts Riot, one of the men, Q. Sanes, corroborated the testimony of a white officer who claimed the LAPD was racist. With the conviction of O.J. Simpson a few days before in the civil suit for the wrongful death of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, the men realize that the racial volatility of the City of Angels is still prevalent after three decades of deep social upheaval and change."

    "N.E. Edelen has been writing professionally since 1966 when he wrote educational films on black history. He was a writer for "Serendipity," a children's Saturday morning TV series that won an Emmy award; he was writer and associate producer of "Preacher Man," a documentary that was nominated for an Emmy, then he was co-writer-producer of a bicentennial special called "The Greatest Story Never Told." Edelen grew up in Indiana where he attended segregated public schools. He later moved to Los Angeles, and he presently lives in Southern California. After a While You Wonder is Edelen's first novel and is the final episode in a trilogy; he is currently writing the first episode."
