About the Book:
The very wealthy and very sheltered Preston Meadows lives his life protected from even the hint of harm. His world is safe and secure until someone kidnaps his sister, Katie. Against his parents’ wishes, Preston sets out on his own to find her. Preston works hard to blend in with the “regular” people roaming the streets of Dallas – but the real world is zany, insane, full of danger and ruthless criminals.
Preston soon begins to learn more about himself and finds he has a knack for foiling certain crimes. In his adventures, during his search for his sister, he makes friends with some of the strangest people he could ever imagine. Along the way, Preston falls in love, comes face-to-face with a self-described Drug Lord, and discovers a side of himself he never knew existed, especially after the Drug Lord kidnaps his girlfriend.
"Author John Smith had turned a potential "been there, done that" plot into a fun filling novel with lots of twist and turns. The book contains several elements such as family issues, love of different kind (even different species), good versus evil. I find this novel easy to read and very engrossing as it's easy to root for an underdog. Anyone who is looking for entertainment should definitely give this book a try. Highly recommended."- James Poon, Amazon Reviewer

"I loved reading this book. I am usually not into mystery books but the humor in this one was very entertaining. I never knew what the next page would bring me. This was a light, fun, humorous read that will transport you to many precarious situations the main character finds himself in."- Diana Kay Lankford, Amazon Reviewer
