Background on Gold Digger: Muskegon Heights

In Gold Digger, the novel and audiobook, Harvey Valentine Private Investigator has to venture into Muskegon Heights. It's not quite as bad as the video here of Detroit, but it's getting there. It's not uncommon to find several houses on both sides of the street and on most streets in the Heights with abandoned, burned up homes marked with gang signs.

Per capita Muskegon Heights ranks just below Detroit in violent crime and property crime and it's only a city of 10,000 people.
