“Shades of Gray” is the story about a single parent honest man who finds himself short on money at a time of dire need for his sick daughter and resorting to measures he wouldn’t normally do. His “normal” life turns upside down into the world of the drug trade, the characters of not all good, not all evil, and characters close by with the same qualities. The story unfolds until the last page, keeping the reader well engaged without boring slowdowns. Probably the best quality of the book is the ending because the realistic part of the illegal drug industry is not a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Great work, Five Stars!
