Lost Boy

Jabari and his homeboy Rip find out about this lick making some real quick cash, or so it seems. Behind this scheme is a grimy cat that goes by the name of Diplite, and a just as equally shysty thug named Hulie; who Jabari has had his own bad run in's with, nevertheless, he goes for it.  

Things go sideways from there. 

Shots get fired, people get killed, and Diplite hauls ass on him. Jabari gets caught up in a murder conniving with Hulie on a wayward idea that only make matters worse. Determined to turn the tables at whatever cost, they come up with a plan. A bad one at that. Complicating matters even more. The one person least likely in this whole scenario, holds the stacked deck in their clutches. So, will they catch up with this slippery figure to get right? Or, will bad, ghetto karma catch up with them first? Making them both, forever lost. 

Written by the literary, urban, novelist, and author Dean Hamid. Combining the elements of old world Charleston, with the rudimentary, gritty South Carolina flavor to pen this page turning, must read novel. 

Lost Boy. 



Dean Hamid / Author

   I'm Dean Hamid, somewhat of a old school type of guy. Been around for awhile, writing. Different schools of thought in regard to the craft. Born and raised in Brooklyn; Williamsburg, Bushwick, and Bed-Stuy. Attended Art and Design high school in NYC; studied in Broadcasting, and I'm also a Military Vet. I've been a husband, and I'm a father. These things have shaped me into the man I am, and the books I write.

       I made the decision to become a published author because I believe, that I can do what a guy like Stephen Spielberg, David Baldacci, Dean Koonz does, and write great stories. I believe that I could be just as successful.
         I like to do Mysteries, Suspense, and Action-Thrillers, however, I would definitely want to stay with Urban, not necessarily African-American, but Urban nonetheless.
       I have no desire to tell of the initial hand to mouth of the street hustlers. I like to delve more into the what made it come about, and the whole thought and drive that pushes criminal behavior. The inward thoughts, and mind-set.
    That's the realities of what I saw growing up. That's the story I want to tell.

I'm always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. I’ve progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a professional storyteller, I’m adept at using my imaginative thinking and creative flair to bring my stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways.

In 1971, Khalid Muhammad spoke out against the violence and drugs that plagued the Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn community. Tragically he lost his life as a result, soon after, a bitter, violent vortex encircles the lives of his family. Despite his wife Waseema’s struggles against all odds to hold the family down, it wasn’t enough. Their oldest son, Mustapha, resorts to selling drugs; their son Rasheed gets caught up robbing drug dealers and their daughter Shaheeda, falls prey to the crack-cocaine and prostitution that ravages the once proud and thriving Bushwick-Hylan Projects.
To make matters worse, Rasheed and his crew rob a larger than life stash of cash and drugs from one of Brooklyn's top dope pushers. In the complex web of events that take place next, Rasheed unwittingly stumbles on a break involving his father's death. The web is further tangled by the betrayal of his lover, and best friend hindering his quest to avenge the persons responsible. Meanwhile his crew, and family unite attempting to break the clutches of a psychotic drug king-pen named Carlos. 

In the all too thrilling, Houdini-like finish, his father's past threatens to hold onto secrets that may one day set Rasheed free from his demons.
