But having an affair with Mrs. Landis, Thanksgiving with his mother and family she needed to talk about something but what.

Joey had a plan but it would involve changing the management of his father’s company. His brother-in-law Garth ran customer service along with his mother.

As you read chapter 42 you will get the incite into what this banker was doing to Joey’s family and his goal. Bobby McGee would learn he is messing with the wrong person. The bank situation was dire and the author takes us briefly back to Joey in prison and his father’s death. Things get tense and the encounter with McGee brings to light what this corrupt banker has in mind to take over his father’s company Blade Engine. Although his family wants him to sign and guarantee financial help Joey is smart and the result is shocking. Remembering what Red Cross taught him in prison: respect his number one objective: don’t care what a con or CO thinks of me, not looking for friends. But if a man doesn’t respect me, we’re going to have a problem. Hard to live by his rules in prison but outside even harder. 

Then Joey finds out about here Mallory opening a cafe and wants to see her why did the cops want to arrest him? Will he ever get a break? Then the truth about his conviction comes out, a lie is told and the author flashes back to a scene in prison that will haunt him forever. 

Joey had a plan and he also knew that for the protection Chico Torres provided him in prison there was a price. Added in Chico would be present when Joey meets with McGee and the author presents a side of him that would make his father proud. Some debts are paid in cold cash you won’t believe how this one got settled and how Joey would hope to help his family’s financial issues be solved. Will McGee see the light or will Chico explain it to him?

Joey created a plan and now he has to decide where he belongs. A job that he gives up, a family that would have to fend for themselves, and a life that he would need to create for himself but what, where, and how? The truth about what TJ did to him, lies, betrayals and deceptions plus an innocent man paying for the deed performed by another. Joey Blade is not someone to take lightly. Friendships are destroyed, others will always be there and a family might be stronger as a result. Where will life lead Joey Blade? Only time will tell if author Len Joy continues his story once more. Told in three parts his youth, his life in prison, and his future getting out as author Len Joy created a plot and storyline true to life, as we meet Joey at the beginning and his love and kindness towards Mallory, the court scenes that were compelling and heartbreaking and his transformation in prison and becoming hard at times dealing with the cons and the lie told by another causing a death of a friend and serious harm to him. The ending dealing with the corrupt banker and the humbleness, warmth, and kindness that most people coming out of prison would not have as Joey Blade’s story is far from over.
