I will admit that I have never read a book like this before. I was initially drawn to the book because it features two kids with autism. But it is so much more than that! This book tackles corruption, secret societies, murder, and much more. It is really a quick read (even though it is over 400 pages). The chapters are short and manageable, and the story is fairly easy to follow. For me, Pabby and Shae are the bright spots in this book. I enjoyed reading about them and all the disabled kids at their home. I found them charming, and I loved the fact that they would share their vast knowledge any time they wanted to. I love the fact that they were so trusting and uninhibited. I was cheering for Pabby when things were really going well for him. I was horrified to read about lawyer corruption and the secret society. I will not put spoilers here, but don't think that the last 100 pages will be a pleasant read. I couldn't put the book down during that last 100 pages. It was the most intriguing part of the book for me! There is profanity throughout the book (but not as much as I thought there might be), but I was more offended by all the sex in the book. Thankfully details were limited, but I read enough to sicken me. And perhaps that is the author's purpose. I was glad that the major online sex portion of the book turned out as it did. That actually surprised me. For me, the book pointed out how many sick people there are in the world. I often live in a bubble and don't even realize what kinds of things are going on. This is one of those books that I am glad I read even though it was not always a pleasant experience. If you like to read about government corruption, this is the book for you. Although I know nothing about golf, I did not find that to be an issue in understanding the book. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

This is the first book I read from Mr. James Ross, and definitely will not be the last. In a very well written book, Mr. Ross creates a rich environment, full of characters that you learn to love during the development of the story. The plot of this story is simple and easy to follow. Two special-need teenagers (Pabby and Shae) are hanging around at Prairie Wind Golf Course, part of a summer youth program in an attempt to learn how to socialize (they are autistic at a certain level). The regulars at the golf course interact with them and their caretakers (Carla and Aiesha). They have special abilities. Shae knows every information related to countries, states etc and Pabby knows everything about animals, although he is very afraid of the small ones. During their stay at the golf club, some events happened. An unethical attorney tries to sue the owner of the golf course (J.W.Schroeder) claiming his client got hurt while playing golf there. To make things worst, the administrator of the orphanage where Pabby and Shae live is the wife of a judge that has questionable behavior, being not impartial when dealing with cases from our unethical attorney's firm, as he has a relationship with another attorney from that firm. And the story goes on, full of twists and plots. You will love how the special ability of Pabby will be developed into use for benefit of the regulars of the golf club. It is a very entertaining book, easy reading, and took me around 16 hours to read the whole book. I recommend this book to the permanent library of all readers that love a good plot, with mystery and drama and very "rich" characters, like the regulars at the golf club (Pork Chop, Uncle Woo, T-Berry and many others). This book was written by James Ross and it was published in October 2011 by Nightengale Press. The author was kind enough to provide me a copy for reviewing, through Pump Up Your Book. Thanks, Dorothy Thompson!
