They come to him at night. Black-winged shadows from the world of his dreams. Joe Jones can't escape these haunting nightmares any more than he can escape the daily grind of his miserable nine-to-five existence. But Joe's forays into petty crime, illicit sex, and his near-constant binge drinking are all symptoms of a deeper social malaise. There is something profoundly amiss at the center of Joe's world and, by implication, at the center of our own. In his debut novel, Kevin James explores the darker side of human motivations with an unflinching look into the heart of a deeply troubled soul. In Joe Jones he gives us a character as complex as he is universal - whose ordinary desires and white-collar ambitions mask an extraordinary capacity for rage.
