Friendship is double-crossed and war amongst honorable men begins in “The Corruption of Blood: Drastic moments, Dark memories collide, as one mans’ journey” (published by Trafford Publishing), the gritty new novel by Jermayne J. Davis.

Paul Williams was a young, handsome African American male from a rough Philadelphia neighborhood. He believed in nothing other than true solidarity, unconditional loyalty and undivided compassion.

Paul traveled throughout the country accompanied by men of honor, treachery and corruption. They committed murders, robberies, and double-cross against enemies and themselves. Scandalous acts blinded Paul’s arrogance from truly seeing the characters of the men who stood before him. Men he thought he admired, but that was before he realized what was happening.

Just when Paul thought everything was in the past, far behind him, a more cunning and upsetting betrayal rears its ugly head.

“The message is overwhelming,” Davis writes. “It is easier to hate than it is to forgive.”
