Another bookmail came yesterday! The postman gave me a notice and I was shocked for a second haha because I don’t remember that I have requested any book. But yeah, I remember the book but I forgot when and to whom I requested it. Hihi
Here’s a blurb of the book
Douglas “Deesh” Sharp has managed to stay out of trouble living in the Bronx, paying his rent by hauling junk for cash. But on the morning Deesh and two pals head upstate to dispose of a sealed oil drum whose contents smells bad enough to be a human corpse, he becomes mixed up in a serious crime. When his plans for escape spiral terribly out of control, Deesh quickly finds himself a victim of betrayal–and the prime suspect in the murders of three white men.
When Jan, a young jockey from the gritty underworld of the Finger Lakes racetrack, breaks her silence about gambling and organized crime, Deesh learns how the story of her family’s past might, against all odds, free him from a life behind bars.
Interweaving Deesh’s and Jan’s gripping narratives, Mark Wisniewski has crafted a moving, insightful work that examines how we love, leave, lose, redeem, and strive for justice. At once compulsively readable, thought-provoking, and complex, Watch Me Go is a riveting, soulful meditation on the power of love and the injustices of hate, showing us that no matter how high the odds, there can always be hope.
