Kirkus Reviews Will Launch a Discovery Campaign For Book That it Compares Some of its Content to Quentin Tarantino Movies

Kirkus Reviews will be launching a discovery campaign for author Dewey B. Reynolds' true crime book entitled Two Shades of Vice: Based on the true story of an interracial couple's life together in crime.

"Reynolds deftly captures the city's colorful characters and smoke-filled haunts," a top Kirkus review said of Dewey Reynolds' true crime book.

    KANSAS CITY, MO, May 10, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The book campaign will advertise in the Kirkus Review magazine, website, and emails, which will be sent out to publishers, agents, filmmakers, booksellers, librarians and consumers. It will kick off May 7th and will end June 15th. Readers and industry influencers will learn in depth about the controversial book written by author Dewey B. Reynolds.

A Kirkus reviewer explored the pulsating action throughout the book and said, "There are scenes of violence that would make Quentin Tarantino blanch."

"Reynolds deftly captures the city's colorful characters and smoke-filled haunts," the reviewer went on to add. "The character's unsympathetic personality trait is to express sadistic fury at almost every turn."

Dewey also explains in an exclusive interview with radio host Don McCauley of The Author's Show, how his black mother and white father co-existed as an interracial couple during the turbulent 1960s. The book tells how they lived dangerously on the edge by flaunting both their interracial union and criminal lifestyle before an already volatile, racist white society. The violence that Dewey's parents encountered allows readers to revisit a time when lynchings and bombings were deeply entrenched into American society.

How far have we come as an American society? How much farther do we have to go? The recent arrest of two black males in a Starbucks in Philadelphia places the spotlight square on present-day racism.
