Baltimore Blues: Harm City, a novel by Marshall C. Bell: “Redefining manhood on the mean streets Baltimore City” of
Their parents long gone, fifteen year old Cameron, his older sister Chance, and young brother Antonio, struggle to survive in a dangerous West Baltimore neighborhood. Predators prey on the weak, drug boys control the block. Like many young men of his generation, navigating ones way up and out of the madness takes courage, a sense of purpose, and the loving guidance from men of honor who offer to mentor and show the way.
Author, Marshall C. Bell, spins a coming of age tale centered around one young man's struggle to overcome, in his second novel, "Baltimore Blues: Harm City." This daunting drama explores the choices that many of our children are forced to make in a world with competing dualities: one based on street credibility and reputation, the other, steeped in a proud African-American history of integrity, pride and honor.
Kweisi Mfume, Member of Congress (ret.) says, "Marshall Bell draws a picture of life, death, hope and despair as a powerful mosaic, laced with the lessons of overcoming great odds."
