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.

What the Critics Say

"Another excellent effort." (Library Journal)
"Ridley's terse, electric prose captures the subculture of modern-day rail riders, and the suspense level remains high throughout." (Publishers Weekly)
"Funny, sad, and pulsing with menace, the book entertains while simultaneously exploring race, materialism, and the very real subcultures that exist below the radar of mainstream America." (Booklist)

    What did you love best about The Drift?

    Ridley's style is as addictive as the drugs his protagonist abuses. Wish he would write more. The only author to ever misdirect me after I had figured out the
