Motorcycles, guns, heroin. These things were not a part of Alex Crossman’s life. He was a simple young man, leading a peaceful, mundane existence. Right up to the moment he accidentally injures a member of Montreal’s most nefarious motorcycle club, the Chevaux de Fer. As recompense, Alex is forced to travel to India and escort the Club’s latest drug shipment home.
While under the watchful eye of the Club’s Indian contingent and ensnared by the seductive charms of its president’s mistress, Ipsita Chaudhary, Alex begins his dark and agonizing metamorphosis from a law-abiding citizen to outlaw biker.
Now, inescapably leveraged into the gang’s sinister world and with the Narcotics Control Bureau in hot pursuit, he struggles to resist the incessant pull of this dark and unfamiliar lifestyle. A lifestyle fraught with tainted love and criminal behaviour. Long dead ghosts from his past whisper to his subconscious, luring him down a twisted and terrifying path of self-realization.
During a final showdown in the jungles of Goa, Alex’s conscience and ego clash in a culmination of good versus evil, love versus hate, and face off in a battle for dominance of his soul. With his moral compass skewed, he is left directionless and desperate.
Will Alex embrace the passionate call of his renegade self and make the impossible choices that will change his life forever? Or could there be another, less dangerous way out?
Review: It’s not usual to see this kind of writing and vocabulary in review copies but I am glad the author wasn’t holding back anything.
Blood and Brown Sugar, I was into the book from the very start of the book and most of all because of the writing and thrill it was offering from the prologue. Yes, it was slow in the few starting first chapters but never got boring.
I loved the dialogues, I loved the characters and I can’t wait to read more of this author.
