The Crippy is a sci-fi, fantasy thriller with elements of mystery and suspense. It moves quick and should keep you on the edge. Mitch Cantsee is a man whose past closes in on him. A deadbeat dad with nothing but a corner bag of meth and a prison record to show for his life, he takes on much more than he bargained for when one of his drug customers pawns her 8-year-old daughter on Mitch. He discovers that the girl has a gift for languages and codes which make her sought after by governments, gangsters and, unless Mitch’s drug-induced fugues have made him delusional, even creatures beyond this earth.
The Crippy is available in softcover ($13.45) and e-reader ($2.99) editions on amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Crippy-Michael-Just/dp/1533034699/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518209793&sr=8-1&keywords=the+crippy. The ending may surprise you, and there are more twists along the way than the mountain and desert roads Mitch and his young charge, Sam, can turn down.
