It is a different kind of nation. America’s streets are rocked by riots arising from the bitter divide between the Redzees and Bluezees in From Us by Randall Jarmon. No one seems to care much about the law. It is all about which side you are on. The Redzee president is in the process of selecting another Supreme Court judge, but the Bluezees will do just about anything to stop him. The sorry state of affairs in the country is the background of Rudolph Baskin’s life. A former New York City Police cop who served in the department of Internal Affairs, Baskin has now turned rogue after being kicked out of NYCP. It is in his new life that he discovers another life that could suit him even better, a world where he is close to being indispensable.
From Us by Randall Jarmon is simply spell-binding. The thrilling political drama, the mysteries, romance, and action come together and create this outstanding and compelling plot. As if that’s not enough, Jarmon’s ability to tell a good story is clearly visible in this book. Balancing between suspense, humor, and intricate dialogue, Jarmon takes his narration to a whole new level. He also creates interesting characters whose personalities and intriguing lives captured my attention easily. Jarmon also introduces just enough of the characters at different appropriate points in the story line, which speaks a lot of his ability as an author. He has definitely gained a new fan in me. From Us is a splendid read and I will definitely look out for more of Randall Jarmon’s work.
