Format: Paperback
A riveting story of a dark seedy underworld of prostitution, pornography and pure evil and a very human man's valiant struggle with his own soul. Disturbing, intriguing and entertaining. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Well, once you meet Drake Eldorado, you won't forget him. He's like a cross between The Walkin' Dude and the Archangel Michael, swinging his righteous fists and dolling out justice wherever it's needed, and not necessarily fairly. He's a vigilante with a conscience, a devil with a soft side.

I hope Dodge Winston's career will be long and full of many more stories. He is a storyteller of the first magnitude. This character crept into my dreams and I found myself wondering what he was up to while I was reading more "intellectual" fare on an airplane after I'd accidentally left my copy of Distortion at home.

If you're into classic tales of good vs. evil, that don't have stupid happy endings but that dig into the real meat of humanity vs. itself, then you'll dig this little novel. I can't wait to read the next one.

Write on, Dodge.

Drake Eldorado is a man with a problem. His addiction to pornography has lead to the breakup and him and his girlfriend. During his quest to combat his addiction, he uncovers a secret more horrifying than anyone could imagine. Demons are real and they are here on Earth. Drake's destiny reveals itself to him through a series of events leading to the murder of his neighborhood's pimp, the kidnapping of his girlfriend, and his vigilante antics.

Drake Eldorado: Distortion by Dodge Winston has an intriguing plot propelled by a smattering of tension-filled scenes with a good balance of conflict between the characters. However, there are scenes that don't deliver the strong connection to Drake that is helpful for a book of this type and that bog the pace of the story down unnecessarily. Those scenes rely too heavily on dialogue to drop large amounts of back-story that would be better revealed in small chunks and by more inventive mean than a conversation between a hooker and her pimp. There is also a great deal of reliance on the thoughts of the character being told to the reader instead of their feelings being shown through the actions and decisions of the characters.

Yet, there are also a few hidden gems of dialogue and description that help to paint various scenes in the book. This story will hold appeal for those who enjoy a plot driven adventure with adult themes.
