John Ridley, author of Everybody Smokes in Hell , is acclaimed for his gritty stories and brisk dialogue. The Drift is a fast-paced trip through the lurid world of modern hobos. Charles Harmon had a firm grip on the American dream until his mind started to crack. Now he's a know-it-all tramp riding the rails. When a friend asks Charles to help find his missing niece, the trail leads to an unsavory world of drug running and white supremacy. Download and start listening now!

    " This story started out kind of slow. I started to enjoy it about half way through and kept reading until the end. I was surprised at the ending at first, but, once I thought about it, it really should not have been a surprise. Maybe a two and a half star rating. "

    " Ick. I might have liked it better if I cared about any of the characters. "
