It's the 1960s A hot August night lies heavy over the Carolinas The corpse legs sprawled stomach down on the concrete pavement arms above the head brings the patrol car to a halt The local police pick up a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs only to discover that their most likely suspect is a homicide detective from California and the racially tense community's single hope in solving a brutal murder that turns up no witnesses no motives no clues

    This is the novel upon which the movie In the Heat of the Night was based Set in a small town in South Carolina in the early 1960s the book opens with the discovery of a body lying in the highway late one night The victim is a prominent musician who had been active in organizing a music festival which many hoped would revive the fading fortunes of the town His death is thus a blow to the hopes of the entire communityThe police chief a man named Gillespie is new to the job Previously a jailer in Texas he was hired by the town council basically because they could hire him cheap He's never been a police officer before and has no experience as a homicide investigator so he's basically clueless here Not knowing what else to do he orders his principal deputy to look for anyone attempting to leave town In checking the train station the deputy discovers a black man waiting for the next train The deputy puts the man up against the wall frisks him and discovers a wallet full of moneyLooking no further the deputy takes the man to the station and presents him to the chief as the logical murderer The chief joins in the assumption principally because he believes that no black man could have ever honestly earned the amount of money in the wallet But then it turns out that the suspect Virgil Tibbs is in fact a police officer from Pasadena California He's on his way home after visiting his motherThe chief calls his counterpart in Pasadena and discovers that Tibbs is not only a police officer but a skilled homicide investigator The Pasadena chief offers to loan Virgil's services to Gillespie if he can be of any help The notion that he might accept help from a black man is clearly anathema to Gillespie but he has no idea how to solve this crime on his own and given the high profile of the victim Gillespie knows that if the murder is not solved he will most likely be out of a job Accordingly he swallows his pride and allows that Virgil might assist him in his investigationVirgil himself is torn At one level he simply wants to get out of town as quickly as possible and get back to Pasadena where he doesn't face the kind of prejudice and discrimination that confronts him in South Carolina On the other hand though he's obviously tempted to show up these racists and solve the crime when they will never be able to do so In the end he agrees to stay long enough to see the case through and this book winds up being not nearly as much of a murder mystery as it is an examination of the implications of race in the deep South in the early 1960s Virgil will suffer repeated insults and will face grave physical danger because of his race but the dignity and intelligence with which he responds is really a timeless example for people of any raceInevitably the movie takes some liberties with the book but overall it's a very good adaptation Sidney Poitier is brilliant in the role of Virgil Tibbs but plays the character with a bit of an edge than the Tibbs of the novel Rod Steiger is also perfect as Gillespie and reading the book after seeing the film it's impossible not to see the two actors when thinking of the characters Both the book and the movie move swiftly with no wasted time or space but one wonders whether it would be possible to publish this book or make this movie in the present day Would audiences be willing to accept a black character who responds as calmly as Tibbs does to the discrimination that confronts him? Would they not insist that he react much forcefully against it? Whatever the case both the book and the movie have held up very well and are still as entertaining and as instructive as they were in the middle 1960s
