Last of a Dying Breed
by Akbar Pray
Before you, a story of urban love, criminal genius, unbridled ambition and the ruthless pursuit of power, with cast of characters one will not easily forget.
Omar Grey, a child raised into a dope infested, impovershed
enviornment, but determined by any means necessary to lift himself and his family from the muck and mire in which they live.
Funky Sam, a Shakespearian, Edgar Allen Poe, Kipling quoting dope fiend, who would find in the fertile mind of young Omar a hild with a rapacious appetitte fro learning and a near photographic mind.
Mitch, Omar's uncle, the breadwinner in Omar's drug dealing family and the only father and role model he has ever known.
Mary,the bi-racial beauty who at the tender age of fourteen with the body of a woman, but the mind of a child, finds the easy money and allure of prostitution, a temptation she cannot resist.
