    Garrett, George (1929-2008).
    THE KING OF BABYLON SHALL NOT COME AGAINST YOU.

    Edition: 2nd printing.

    New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, (1996) dj. Hardcover - A novel which is part detective story, part history and part a 'sideshow of the human comedy." It "starts off conventionally enough when journalist Billy Tone shows up in the town of Paradise Springs to investigate a bizarre murder that occurred on the same day [in 1968] that Martin Luther King was assassinated. But poet and novelist George Garrett has something else in mind. That something else turns out to be farce. A rich stew of chaos, comedy, old jokes, and ranting characters, the novel also finds room for a biography of Martin Luther King and a character named Raphael who smokes a corncob pipe, sports a pith helmet, and just might be the angel Raphael." 336 pp. ISBN: 0-151575541.
