Is it a rumor, or does William Jefferson Six, known as Wideload, a notorious street fighter in Baltimore, have the gift of healing? His friend Needle Eye says so. You decide. Betty McNeal knew about the lumps in her breasts, yet she chose to ignore them thinking they would go away. Pixie, Betty's teenage daughter, is forced to take control of her fragmented family. She has a retarded sister, Jennifer. Does tragedy and desperation weaken her, or bring her strength. Will Cool Camel, the gambler and one of Wideload's followers, ever find direction in his life? This snappy reading novella is a real winner - after all, it's John Atkinson who has weaved the tale once again in this highly entertaining tale.
