DODGERS BILL BEVERLY

When East, a low-level lookout for a Los Angeles drug organisation, loses his watch house in a police raid, his boss recruits him for a very different job: a road trip straight down the middle of white, rural America to assassinate a judge in Wisconsin.
Having no choice, East and a crew of untested boys – including his inscrutable trigger-happy younger brother, Ty – leave the only home they’ve ever known, setting off in a nondescript van, with a roll of cash, a map and a gun they shouldn’t have. this amateur crew embark on a life-changing odyssey into the unknown.
Along the way, the country surprises East.  The blood on his hands isn’t the blood he expects. And he reaches places where only he can decide which way to go – or which person to become. 
MY REVIEW
This is a must buy  must read for readers who want to really get the feel of how a character speaks. Dodgers announces the arrival of an exceptional new talent. A gripping thriller. I was absolutely gripped by the voice of East and his brother. An intense, dangerous thriller delivered with poignancy that will break your heart. Dodgers is the American road trip for our times. From the mean streets of South LA to the hinterlands of the American Midwest. Bill Beverly studied literature and writing at Oberlin College. He also studied fiction and pursued a Ph.D. in American literature at the University of Florida. With out doubt an excellent book.
