John Ridley, author of Everybody Smokes in Hell (F0035), 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.

Professional reviews

"A friend asks a drug-addicted hobo to find his niece, last seen riding the rails a month earlier. The search leads this once financially successful black man to danger, to facing the demons that caused his mental breakdown, and to a last chance at reclaiming his humanity. JD Jackson has the vocal skills to enrich this story, which is steeped in modern hobo culture. His depiction of male characters ranges ably from an addict's delusions to a white supremacist's vitriol. Unfortunately, his inability to vocalize distinctive female voices makes for a wholly unsatisfactory listening experience. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
