Overview

John Ross has been walking the streets of Buffalo, New York, for over thirty years. His days as a successful business and family man and the memories of happiness with his wife and two small babies are just dim thoughts, fading as the years pass by. Ross is the oldest street person in Buffalo, and they call him the Buffalo Kid. His home is a large cardboard box under a bridge by the Niagara River. Every day, for thirty one years, the Kid has walked the same streets, looking for scraps of food and handouts - but one day a bizarre thing happens when he encounters a stranger who hands him a fifty dollar bill. Intrigued by the man's generosity the Buffalo Kid follows him, only to discover something so bizarre that their second meeting changes his life forever. The Buffalo Kid is a story about hope, about one man's comeback from the seemingly impossible and despondent circumstances of failure which has haunted him. It is a thriller, action-packed and full of warmth and humanity.

Meet the Author

I write high-concept thrillers in several genres - crime, geopolitical and sci-fi.
High concept thrillers present exciting ideas and concepts which instantly appeal to readers. While a thriller could be a murder, mystery or political, high-concept thrillers enter yet another twist into these genres, such as an alien intervention, or nano-technology gone wrong, or viral contagion causing global sterilization or even out-side-the-box concepts which challenge conventional mediocrity. Dan Brown, Michael Crichton and others, are known for their high-concept thrillers.
