USA – Those curious to know what makes youngsters descend into a life of crime will do well to read author Ramon delacruz’s latest fiction, ‘Birds of a feather flock together’. Though the title is a famous saying, the story treads new grounds in uncovering the life and times of two youngsters who are simply following the whims and fancies of their age.
Randy and Yuleisy, two orthodox con artists, know how to get what they want. For them, everyone is a potential victim, be they strangers, relatives, or even the government. Readers who think that good schools, zero crime rate, parents with old word values form a good bulwark against delinquency are in for a good shock. Yuleisy is typical neighborhood girl who can dance to the Lambada, celebrate her special sixteenth birthday at home, and still spend nights out in motels with her friends.
‘Birds of a feather flock together’ follows a well sketched out plot that sees the protagonists go down their chosen paths. Now married, Randy and Yuleisy get to meet other crooks, one of whom is a carpenter but career criminal, Bobby. Bobby’s instinct for stealing and carjacking at gun point ultimately gets him a ten year sentence, after which he continues his old habits in his home country.
Ramon delacruz has crafted a tale that is not just another crime fiction, but a coming together of the emotions that lie behind crime – obsession, survival, betrayal and the daunting terror of getting caught. The slick short story is told in 118 pages with a prose that is easy reading anywhere, at home, while travelling or during work breaks.
‘Birds of a feather flock together’ can be bought on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. The book is soon slated for a release by Barnes and Noble in a nook press edition.
