Well-written and a page turner. The story could have still gotten the point across of the main character's mindset and plight without the repeated racial word "colored" as written from the perspective white male author born in the 1951. Really? Not needed. I got to my fourth time reading the word and had to put it down. Two times is enough to set the tone. Too much emphasis, and almost a crutch (for a lack of a better word).
