Publisher's Summary

The Drift is a fast-paced trip through the lurid world of modern hobos. Charles Harmon had a firm grip on the American dream until his mind started to crack. Now he's a know-it-all tramp riding the rails. When a friend asks Charles to help find his missing niece, the trail leads to an unsavory world of drug running and white supremacy.

John Ridley, author of Everybody Smokes in Hell, is acclaimed for his gritty stories and brisk dialogue.
