Allen Eskens: Nothing More Dangerous


 “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Boady Sanden is a white 15-year old who’s counting down the days. He’s getting the hell out of Jessup, Missouri.

Things are brewing in 70s Jessup though. Lida Poe, the African American bookkeeper at the plastics factory, has disappeared. So has a large amount of cash.

The company sends in Charles Elgin. He’s upper middle class and black. That doesn’t sit well with the Halcomb clan, and Cecil Milo who’s been running the factory. Their group the CORPS are going to fix all of that nonsense.

Eskens has written an evocatiave, rich, and demanding book that will make you think, right along with Boady, about his world and the people within it. Will his enlightenment come soon enough?
