Wall Street Journal The Emperor of Ocean Park is an outstanding work of fiction. Carter's ear for dialogue can't come close to matching Richard Russo or Richard Price for vernacular or realism, but also doesn't approach the (admittedly unrealistic) wit or fancy that some other authors I like employ. Also, the mechanism of elaborate pre-death scheming attributed to the Judge strikes one as a bit far-fetched.

Stephen L. Carter makes his debut as a fiction writer with The Emperor of Ocean Park. On a few fronts Carter succeeded, but on others he failed, in that he did not capture the fundamental elements displayed by these authors - the most prominent being pacing. This is a tale of political manipulation, a Supreme Court justice confirmation hearing, and vengeance, all told through the point of view of a black middle class family. Simply put, the novel is too damn big, and juggles too many balls. With mystery and political intrigue/legal eagle novels, timing is everything.
