This story is about a man who grew up in the housing projects who comes back home after a short career writing for a television show. He begins to reconnect with his old classmates and teaches a class at his old school as a volunteer and begins to reconnect with his daughter. Then comes an assault which leaves him near death.
The story in the last half of the book revolves around this assault and why he might not be willing to reveal who assaulted him even if he knows. I liked the surprise ending which wasn't what I was expecting. A lot of curse words throughout the book that I didn't like and really didn't add to the story. Otherwise, it was really well written. Believeable characters. ( )

Really excellent. I was worried after I didn't enjoy the last Price novel I read, but this is really great - keeps you guessing and, by the end, on the edge of your seat. ( )

Keeps you reading.
Ray who is a writes for TV moves back to New Jersey to give something back. He helps children write.
He gets attacked in his house, his old school friend Nerese a retiring Police woman investigates. Ray is very reluctant to talk but after a while Nerese works it out. Lots of interesting characters in this book. ( )

Ray Mitchell grew up in public housing in Richard Price’s fictional city of Dempsy, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from New York City. After a stint as an English teacher, then as a cocaine-addled cab driver he worked for a former student as a television writer in L.A. When that’s over he returns to New Jersey, teaches a class at his old school, and tries to help a few of the people that now live where he used to.

Ray’s story is one of guilt and unintended consequences. He truly wants to help the downtrodden, but his motives are questioned. Ray’s teenage daughter lives with his ex-wife in New York but guilt overwhelms his relationship with her too.

Ray really is a good guy and tries to do right, but with Samaritan Price seems to be saying that you can’t always help those that need help, and sometimes it’s best not to try. But I think he’s thankful there are people like Ray Mitchell that don’t realize it. ( )
