Ricky D. Douglas’s new book “Far from Perfect" is about Robert Banes who is just a father, a man like any other man—that is, at least, until the evil and greed of people with little regard for the rights of others with whom they share the planet violently torture and murder his son.

Ricky D. Douglas, who is a driven new writer whose passion for writing is eclipsed only by his love for reading, has completed his new book “Far from Perfect": a gripping tale about how Robert Barnes, armed with only a page of names and figures torn from a ledger, a ziplock bag of illegal drugs, sets out to gather information that will clear his son’s name and hopefully convince police of a criminal element they say does not exist in their town.

Douglas writes, “As the dark of night prepared to give way to the light of day, the sun in all its brilliance peeked over the horizon, lending hope and promise to a new day. A light haze hung motionless just above the glass-slick bay this crisp November morning. The first sign of light was a signal to the seagulls to begin their morning chatter, thereby giving notice to the world that a new day had begun and that it was time to get on with the business of living it.”

Published by Page Publishing, Ricky D. Douglas’s intriguing book explores how Robert Banes’s clumsy poking about and asking questions around the docks makes someone nervous enough to put a stop to it. Even after being found on the docks, the back of his head bashed in, the police still refuse to take him seriously. He is, after all, just another distraught, grieving father who finds himself a victim of a crime.

These frustrating events conspire to transform the usually mild-mannered widower into an instrument of bitterness and rage. From this moment on, his only reason for living is to locate and punish the people who have destroyed his world. Unfortunately for Banes, the organization he takes on is more powerful and just as determined. Before he knows what hit him, the only two people left for him to love in this world are targeted. His girlfriend is molested and threatened, and a street kid named Billy who’d helped him at the dock has been kidnapped. This leaves Banes with only one option: hit back even harder.

Readers who wish to experience this emotional work can purchase “Far from Perfect” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
