Lots of violence. Different plot, if you stay with it till the end, you will have made the journey. J/
Road Trip is a story that I could not put down! Emory Black puts you behind the wheel of this Man's life and is pursuit for the truth. There's no telling what will happen next or what will come of Josh, the storyline keeps you on your toes and hoping for the best!
A Hard Edged Tale of Redemption The author is in charge of his craft. Humor coating certain passages is welcomed. There are sly winks as well. The story, alas, is ugly and mean and pretty and knowing. At its core, it is probably a love story, a thing of discovery, of growth, and yes, of steel boned menace. Its end is tender though, sublime. Read on through the well wrought mire and you will be glad to have gotten there.
Author Emory Black is able to do what all writers hope to accomplish: he keeps you turning the pages right to the very end! His dialogue and descriptive prose use the simplest words in a refreshingly new, unique and crisp way, giving unexpected excitement to his story. Emory Black is reminiscent of James Baldwin's style.
