The Tribe - Gregory Townes

What goes around comes around. We’ve heard this all of our lives, but what happens when situations truly come full circle? David Peters has found out the hard way and what he has discovered could mean death to him and his entire family.

In the midst of a heat wave, David and his daughter Star, go out to purchase her some new sneakers. Suffering from the constant heat, the couple cannot seem to find a cool place. They soon find themselves bombarded by strange characters that seem to repeat the same thing.

“The Dead Know What the Living Are Doing”

Not realizing what it means, they fight to make it back home in one piece. This proves not to be an easy task. Once they finally make it home, however, unbeknownst to them, a wheel has been set into motion. What was sent around hundreds of years ago is beginning to come around, and life as they once knew it is forever lost. They find themselves in a whirlwind of violence, death and evil. An evil so powerful that if not stopped, it will destroy the world. Only one person can stop this evil…an innocent pawn possessing more power than both life and death.

The Tribe is an excellent book that perfectly balances the sins of the past with the worlds’ problems of today. Author Gregory Townes has created a magnificent collage of human emotion, deception, greed and redemption. In his collage, Townes blends the history of slavery, African folklore and culture and its unfortunate circle of human iniquities.

A psychological thriller full of twists and turns, Townes will have you guessing through each page. Take a journey through hell with David Peters as he battles his demons, doubts, insecurities, anger and inabilities. His only goal is to catch a shining star. If that star fails, the world will most certainly follow down into the depths of the evil in which has inhabited it since its very existence.
