Young Junius Hardcover – November 9, 2010
Top Customer Reviews
Do yourself a favor. Pick up this book and give it a chance. It's a great introduction into Seth Harwood's work, a collection that includes other outstanding offerings in the Crime genre in the Jack Palms series (in which an older Junius Ponds makes another appearance). Highly recommended.
Hidden between the violent lines of Young Junius, there are sensitive parts. People not part of the drug culture try to live normal lives - and give some guidance to young victims like Junius. There is sibling love, loyalty between friends, true heroism of law enforcement - and a comic walk-on by a character who looks like a well known fellow author of Seth Harwood's, a leader in the podcast and publish business model.
If you follow the progression from Seth's "Jack Palms" series, through Young Junius and to his just published In Broad Daylight, you will see the growth and development of a future serious author, who although now genre specific, may one day use his proven story telling, characterization and wordsmith skills to write novels that will be considered of literature grade.
If you want to read a good crime thriller, full of violence and in-your-face dirt that will haunt you for years to come, read Young Junius - you'll never forget him! And you'll never forget Seth Harwood who, between the lines of Young Junius, shows real talent and depth.
In short, Young Junius is an intelligent, tight and exciting story absolutely worth reading.
Set in 1987 in three public housing high rise buildings called the towers, the motivations, relationships and loyalties of the drug dealers that run the towers are detailed. When you read Young Junius, stories in the news about the deaths of young men fueled by drug use are no less sad, but you are in a world where violence is inevitable.

Not a bad novel but not as good as it might be. Lots of action but perhaps too much. A light read with a heavy body count.Published 23 months ago by retiredprof
