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: 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.
