This is a fast engaging read from start of the first page to the last and Travis Hunter draws the reader's attention to one of the world's most illegal practices: the black market of babies. I enjoyed this book, wonderful writing, humorous at times, but I also found myself saddened by the situation Jamillah encountered in her life. Dark Child will have you on the edge of your seat, gasping and guessing, but will leave you ready and eager for his next novel. Five star read and a job well done. Recommended for everyone to read.
Every character is developed just enough and believable. Thanks for this realistic plot that will have people from all walks of life discussing a very controversial issue.
DARK CHILD mixes intrigue with crime and passion, creating a moving and dramatic novel. The story weaves from the present to the past of the characters, so a fully developed history is told and understood. The dialogue and emotion exhibited is realistic, humorous, joyful and heartbreaking. DARK CHILD presents many questions; however, the most telling - is it truly in a child's best interest or is it for the love of the almighty dollar.

I dont have very much experience with drug dealers on a personal level. However, this story is so well crafted I found myself naming an actor that might portray the characters in a movie. The hero of the story, Urban has a very interesting background and an even more colorful family. The story moves through Urban's current life and his past and weaves the past and present to present a full story.
As Urban and his sister Jamillah deal with her drug addiction and a new baby in their lives, they both get dangerously involved in a situation that is far deeper than either is prepared to deal with. They are dealing with trafficking in humans, not for sex but someone is selling little black babies. I dont want to give away too much of the story.
My bookclub has planned a meeting with Mr Hunter for February. I am anxiously waiting to discuss the book with him. Some of the other members have finished the book as well and are expressing the same sentiment.

Dark Child was not as good as I expected. It was not as thought-provoking as his other books. I like the old Travis Hunter.Published on February 19, 2011 by Amazon Customer
