Covering the time period leading up to, during, and just after the Omaha Race Riot of 1919, Kings of Broken Things is a solidly mediocre book. It’s not especially engaging nor is the writing very good. A couple of the storylines are good, but for the most part it’s just not an interesting book. If you really want to read a book about this event, this one is good enough, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to read it.
