Rick Maier has written one of those “can’t put it down” summer reading books. BONE DUST is as intriguing and as fast paced as THE DA VINCI CODE.
He ingeniously and coincidentally weaves a SARS-like pandemic into his story about contemporary Macon, Ga.
If you are from the South you will appreciate the boldness in which Maier describes through his characters and situations how Southerners deal with “race” concerns, especially at the corporate level.
If you are a runner, as I am, you will identify with the main character and how “running” is a sustaining factor in his life.
Pertinent human issues show up in Maier’s book of short chapters with nifty titles. The details of death, the facade of being religious, and a father’s relationship with his daughters are three images that remain with me.
Even though BONE DUST is a drama, with a touching ending(be ready for it), Maier’s main character is a jokster kind of guy- so the book is not without humor! You’ll love it!
