Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 156 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Who Killed Walt BoneI absolutely loved your book. The story kept me turning the pages non-stop. It was interesting, enlightening, amazing, scary, and funny. Im a middle-aged lady who has never taken karate, and I loved it. -- Luanne Thibault Book Description Seeking The Way from the Wayward Written in the style of James Patterson or Harlan Coben, Who Killed Walt Bone is an exciting, entertaining, true coming of age story about a chubby 13-year old who was the victim of bullies, bad clothes, and a mouth-full of braces in the 1970s. At the peek of the Bruce Lee kung fu boom, he joins a karate school where he hopes that the combination of thought provoking wisdom and nut-busting techniques would help him break out of his shell. He idolized his deadly black belt instructors only to discover that they were involved in drugs, perverted sex, and even murder. Simply a riveting read from the start and all the way through. Notjust a book for martial artists but anyone interested in a good story. -- Dan Maglietta Contributors Jim Graden Mark Graden Pastor Don Sturiano Mark Dees Dan Austen Dr. Scott Reis Rick Cogar Mike Anderson Ken Kladnik David Keating Stories about Bruce Lee Linda Lee Caldwell Brandon Lee Shannon Lee Chuck Norris Demetrius The Greek Havanas Joe Lewis Walt Bone Debbie Bone Mike Anderson Ray McCallum Herbie Thompson Joe Corley Hidy Ochai Jhoon Rhee Author Biography John Graden is a bestselling author and inductee into the Self-Publishing Hall of Fame.
