About the Author

During his career, he has worked in narcotics, served on FBI-sponsored violent crimes teams, and was cross-sworn as a U.S. Marshal, pursuing murder suspects and bank robbers in Arizona, Nevada, and California. Putnam did three tours on the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s SWAT team, executing dynamic entries, hostage rescues, and serving as team sniper. He has also worked in criminal intelligence and internal affairs and has supervised corrections, patrol, and a detective bureau. In Hawaii, Putnam worked as Special Agent for the Attorney General investigating smuggling and white-collar crimes.

Can a white person write a believable story told in the first person as a black man? My colleague and I disagree. He says it cannot be done due to “white privilege.” Those of us with white skin who grew up in lower-middle-class or poor neighborhoods were not the recipients of such “privilege,” so I’m not sure I can accept his position. The fluid way the author's main character Bruno Johnson negotiates the hood squares with the idea that you don’t have to be something to write about it. After all, men write first-person female POV, and women write from male POV. However, I don’t think the author maximized the opportunity to express this character in that there were few specific cultural references to such ordinary things as hairstyles, clothing, food preferences, music, or slang. As to the story itself, Bruno Johnson is very like-able. His life as a man and a former cop rings true. He expresses his highly intuitive personality through feelings, sensations, and impressions, Readers won’t get a lot of physical description, because this book is all action. If you don’t already know what Nickerson Gardens looks like, you’ll have to google it. These stories are high-spirited and compelling. DO NOT read them late at night. There are no comforting similes to help you nod off. This book cuts through its plot like a machete in a bamboo thicket.

Thoroughly enjoyed the journey of Bruno and Marie. Doing the right thing, no matter what. Fact and fiction come together for by-the-edge- of-your-seat situations when you think there is no hope. Love conquers all here!
