Joseph Whittington, an educator, devoted writer and author, has completed his new book “Scorching Bars”: a gripping and potent work that keeps the reader mesmerized by the illegal and wrong actions of the main character.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Joseph Whittington’s telling tale will keep the reader on the edge of their seat!

This book is unique, though-provoking, and also partly informative. It uses facts and fiction. The main character of the book grew in the countryside. It was a farming community and the majority of the villagers were poor. The book seeks to bring the light how poverty can lead to crime and violence and other consequences.

In this community it was commonplace for husbands to lead their wives and children. Many of the men encourage the boys to fight and behave violently. A great number of these men barely knew how to read and write.
Rock, Rex, or Baby was not only a product of such community but his parents trained him to become worse than other youths in the community.

Why? Such a question will be answered by the fact that Rock’s mom, who was tired of the frequent beatings she received from his father and was aware to train her son to better stand up against his father on her behalf. So she encouraged him and provided weapons for his violent use from an early age. His father and the other heads trained him, provided weapons also, and taught him the language for violent behavior.

Rock’s violent behavior openly demonstrated after he started school. Such behavior continues to be displayed in the public. It grew in all dimensions, at home, on the street, and in the community. The violence was continuously condemned by both parents as Rock’s father claimed to be training him to get tough and become a boxing champion.

The violence continued and grew in immensity leading to disabling, manslaughter, and eventually murder—which earned him a life in prison sentence as the ultimate result. The murder was in Brazil, where he served part of his life sentence, then he luckily escaped.

The propensity for violence always followed the individual.

This book blends facts, fiction, lust, betrayal, violence, love, adventure, murder, and imagination.
