Brian Hawk grows up too fast in the blue-collar steel town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Surprisingly resilient, he withstands numerous traumatic events in the formative years of his life. Alert and analytical, young Brian responds as a jagged path of emotional and intellectual survival unfolds when a seventeen-year-old becomes suddenly bent on his destruction. Caught in a relentless struggle after witnessing a bizarre and wicked incident at an abandoned house, Brian must quickly adapt to stay one step ahead of danger. Fortunately, he has established a powerful friend who offers unique assistance.
PIZZA BONES begins with young Brian Hawk nearly asleep in his comfy crib. The Mickey Mouse nightlight casts elongated shadows on the far wall, his last taste of innocence. From there, we track his fiercely developing intellect in response to the environmental stressors placed upon him. Trained to fight by his ex-military father as soon as he could walk, a foundation is provided to face adversity with aggression and composure well beyond his years. A stark coming of age novel, there is a clear descent into hell before finding redemption.
PIZZA BONES is a literary effort that takes a comprehensive and thoughtful look at the darker side of human nature and how one extraordinary boy seeks his place in society. To Brian Hawk, the world is a very different place.
PIZZA BONES is a full and complete novel of over 90,000 words and is the first in a two-part series. The story is targeted for mainstream readers who enjoy psychological intrigue with intense character development and erotic exploration of the developing human psyche.
Aficionados in psychological assessment and counseling or those interested in early childhood development will fully enjoy reading this.
