BOOK REVIEW: FEAR OF THE DARK
Whenever Paris Minton heard a knock at his door, he knew it meant trouble. When he heard a knock at his door at 3:51 in the afternoon, he thought it was his friend, Fearless Jones, who always came to visit Paris whenever he was in a jam. Paris always felt obligated to help him because Fearless saved his life more than once.
When Paris moved the drape he was surprised to see that it was not Fearless but his cousin, Ulysses S. Grant IV, better known as "Useless". Paris really didn't want to open the door because he knew it meant big problems. There was one reason that made him open the door. He only did it for the sake of his aunt, Three Hearts, who was the mother of Ulysses.
It seems that Ulysses really got himself into trouble this time. He is involved in big time blackmailing. To make matters worse, a briefcase full of money and incriminating photos are missing. Paris knew he had to ask his friend Fearless for help.
Will Fearless and Paris be able to help Ulysses?
