A criminal underworld plagues a Midwestern city and two young boys are caught in the crossfire.

In "The Contradiction," Chris Parker and James Johnson each chronicle their life growing up in the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The two best friends form a bond, despite the differences between their white and black races. When a horribly painful event ruptures the stability of their lives, the two young men must leave the security of their youth and face the harsh reality of the world in which they live. The city's criminal element provides temptations that weigh their own self gratification against the opportunity to make a difference in their community. Physical, spiritual and emotional battles ensue, as Chris and James determine whether their fame and fortune is worth the price of their souls. Every decision they make is riddled with questions and contradictions.

Will they live for today, or prepare for tomorrow? Will they leave the past behind, learn from it, or will it come back to haunt them? Through every decision, one question remains: Will either learn in time?

Excellent Book! It was like I knew the main characters because their struggles were so realistic. The plot & sequence of events always left me wanting more, while the ending of the story was simply stunning. The Contradiction drew me in, kept me guessing, & was very enjoyable reading.

It is a riveting portrayal of two lives, cleverly assembled together to form a unique story. Its a blueprint of lives that dwell on the right and left view of crime and punishment.

Fantastic! I read this book straight through and could not put it down. It's incredible how the author puts you right there. Very unique the way it see-saws back and forth between the main characters. Great book!
