by Ronald A. Bonnick

Despite being born into a poverty-stricken family to an uneducated and naÔve mother and a ne'er-do-well absentee father, Alfred Browning Barrett was determined to rise above his circumstances and make something of his life.

To that end, he overcome societal obstacles such as deep-rooted cultural beliefs, unscrupulous teachers, greedy and inhumane employers, and jealous friends and neighbors to become one of the islandís most well-known, respected, and feared police detectives.

Through his attention to detail and careful setup of Barrett Islandís history and Albertís background, Ronald A. Bonnick creates a well-crafted tale of the Detective from Barrett Island, exposing the subtle moral that if you are ambitious and determined, you can rise above any circumstance in life to become anything you wish.
