Hi John,
Just finished reading The Crusaders. Compelling and sometimes frightening story. I grew up in south Louisiana during those same years. This is my review on Amazon and Goodreads. Keep me posted on your next work.  All the best,
Pat Alvarado

Guardian Angels

Guardian angels must certainly have been watching over John O'Melveny Woods! To have survived an adolescence such as his and become a positive and productive member of society, he probably had a battalion of angels! The Crusaders should be on high school reading lists for its honest and open discussion about drug use and abuse. But mostly it should be read because it is a tribute to friendship and loyalty.
