The Spirit of Detroit by Frank Anthony Polito
"It was nice to see where some of my favorite characters ended up. Frank Anthony Polito definitley knew where he wanted to take this story regardless of where perhaps the readers wanted it to go and I have to respect him for that."
The Spirit of Detroit by Frank Anthony Polito
"An excellent addition the "Band Fags" story, and an appropriately adult novel that grows with its subject. I look forward to the next adventure in this series!"
