Deviant Acts

Published by Open Road Integrated Media

Deviant Acts Reviews

Jackson is living his nightmares even when his eyes are open. Addicted to heroin since Vietnam, it is the only thing that tends to keep the horror at bay. Besides killing him slowly, it has cost him his job. Living with his mother, in the same home he grew up in, he is now stealing from her and his neighbors for a fix, his girlfriend since grade school has dumped him and the only means of transportation is a beat-up bike. Is there a word for lower than low?

Then his rich aunt from Vermont calls requiring his “services”. Cheryl, his so-called cousin, has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. Auntie wants her back no matter what it costs, and she wants them all dead. Can Jackson kill again? Can he stay straight long enough to get her back? Nothing is what it seems.

“In Deviant Acts, J. J. White has reinvented the amateur sleuth.  His reluctant PI, Jackson Hurst, is crazy as a loon, funny as hell, and deadly serious.  He’s as outside normal life as a man can get and somehow still solidly on the side of the angels.  This is a great read.  Let’s hope Jackson Hurst goes pro and we get a string of novels about this original and compelling character.”

~ Sterling Watson, author of Fighting in the Shade and Suitcase City.


Nisei 

Published by Open Road Integrated Media

Nisei Reviews

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States government encouraged all eligible young men to enlist immediately in the fight against its enemies overseas. All eligible young men except Japanese-Americans.

Nisei is the story of Hideo ‘Bobby’ Takahashi, a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American who must overcome prejudice, internment, and the policies of his own government to prove his loyalty to his country.

Narrated by Bobby Takahashi and read by his son, Robert, forty-six years after Bobby’s death, the story details the young Nisei’s determination to fight honorably for his country and return to the young love he was forced to leave, a girl he cannot have because she is white.
