The thrilling new novel of crime, music, and redemption from the acclaimed author of Dark and Dakota Grand.
Benjamin Baker knew love for the second time when his eyes met Salamanca Mitchell’s. The first time was at age 11, when he’d sat down at a piano to play his first original composition. But both of those loves are nearly destroyed when he goes to work for Alfonse Mitchell, Salamanca’s father and a prominent soul-food restaurant owner with a secret criminal life.
Seduced by the lure of easy money, Ben joins Mitchell’s den of thieves, only to earn seven years in prison when the burglary ring falls apart. As his singing group goes on to stardom without him, and Salamanca struggles to raise Ben’s daughter while on the run from her own father, he can only dream of a waiting family just beyond prison’s doors. Ben and Salamanca must each travel different roads to get back to each other, fighting against their own fears and against Alfonse Mitchell, the most tenacious enemy of all.
Told in gritty, poetic prose, Seeking Salamanca Mitchell follows two passionate hearts through the trials that keep them apart. It is an exciting story of love and danger that cements Kenji Jasper’s reputation as one of the finest writers of his generation.
