Can’t Wait Wednesday: Three-Fifths

Can't Wait Wednesday

Can’t Wait Wednesday was once Waiting on Wednesday, but the purpose is the same: for bloggers to highlight what they’re waiting on. This week I am waiting on: Three-Fifths

Sooo, nothing exactly exists for this book.

It’s slated to be one of the first three books from Agora, a diversity-focused crime imprint from Polis Books which will kick off in Autumn 2019. So early book nerd catches the worm, yeah? This is what I did find:

Bobby Saraceno is a young biracial man, passing for white, who must confront the secret of his identity when his best friend involves him in a hate crime.

Robert Winston, an ER physician, returns to Pittsburgh amidst the crumbling of his marriage to care for his aging parents and comes to terms with a truth from his past: that he unknowingly fathered a son.

Isabel Saraceno, Bobby’s mother, is a desperate alcoholic with one last opportunity to set things right after a chance reunion with her son’s father: Robert Winston.

Bobby’s unwitting involvement in the crime sets in motion a series of events that brings these three parallel first person POV’s together.

Three-Fifths is a story of addiction, infidelity, hate and ultimately love, that comes to a tragic but inevitable conclusion leaving all involved questioning the measure of a man.

Not sure, what the final blurb will be, but the author’s query submission describes it as above. I for one am ready for more diversity-focused crime and thrillers!
