As some of you may know, when I’m not writing fiction or puzzles I edit the work of others. BURNING THE BRIDGES by Charles Blount is one of the most powerful books I ever had the privilege to edit.
Local basketball star, Black Johnson, is college bound until he gets tangled in a timeworn feud initiated by his father. When Black’s brother, Keith, is murdered in the streets in cold blood, Black swears vengeance and promises his mother he’ll find those responsible for breaking apart their family.
Deep in the pursuit for answers regarding his brother’s murder, Black encounters a mysterious woman focused on her own path of revenge. As Black confronts the events surrounding his brother’s death, he uncovers mysteries that have been deeply buried by the people closest to him. Learning the truth can come at a high cost, especially when it means discovering his trust in others may have been misplaced.
Will Black turn to the one person whose past will reveal all the answers? Or will he have to risk the lives of those around him to avenge his brother and solve the secrets of the past?
This is a fast-paced thrill ride with a lot to say.
