Overview

The rough and impoverished streets of Southeast San Diego, a district where crime and violence are a mere arm’s length away, a neighborhood where drug abuse and gang activity run rampant, a place with little opportunity for hope.
Enter Sammy Jones and his best friend Eric Sanders, aka EZ, two kids fresh out of elementary school, and at the cusp of an abrupt and final transition into adolescence. Follow their animated and sometimes comical escapades as they venture to draw out the twilight of their innocence, their harrowing experiences as they seek out approval and recognition from the older clique of homeboys, led by EZ’s own brother, Junebug, and lastly…
Something sinister lurks in the neighborhood’s sewers, continually drawing the boys and attempting to ensnare them in its mysterious and powerful clutches. Spellbound, the two youngsters are swept into an ever-tightening whirlpool of death, stirred by an evil force that threatens to shatter the bond of their friendship, and seeks to destroy their very lives.
Two boys, struggling to become young men, facing an unimaginable adversary they have no hope to overcome…

Meet the Author

Greetings, reader. My pen name is Raymond Towers, and I am Hispanic generally, and Chicano specifically. I was born on the second day of June, in the year of 1970, in San Diego, California, and for the greater majority of my life I have called San Diego my home. I have been writing... well, forever. Ever since I could hold a writing instrument, and read a book of fiction, I knew that I wanted to be a professional writer. Alas, I was not ready, and not until my fortieth year did I finally have the time and the energy to commit to the craft.

I am ready now. Let me take you by the hand, and let us soar to places you are familiar with, or to places you've never before imagined. Let me show you what I've seen with my eyes, what I've dreamt of and envisioned, and what my imagination, experience and wisdom has conjured up for the two of us. I have many, many grand stories to tell you.

Most of my titles have adult content. If necessary, adjust the adult content filter to view them.

    Well written, but not my cup of tea

    I selected this book because of the setting, even though it isn't a genre I would normally like (not sure what genre it really belongs to). It is well written, though wordy. Sometimes I wanted to shout "get on with the plot!" Didn't care for the ending - again just too much explanation. On second thought,there is one aspect at the end that I did appreciate, but I don't want to give anything away.

    The value of this book is an insider's view of life on the wrong side of the tracks (or, inthis case, the freeway). A much better read in that respect than as a mystery.
