Fiction: Dixie Book One
by Sybil Watters
Fiction: Dixie Book One - Open Roads
“Dixie” details the deeply haunting and troubled life of a young man in the Deep South in the 1960s-70s, constantly at war with his own demons and promoted by a sinister man in the ways of running shine, driving fast cars, cavorting with loose women and inadvertently gaining sole insight into a secret, southern-style organized crime network, historically known as the “Dixie Mafia”.
Always trying to do the right thing by the love of his life; a beautiful, religious and spirited local, he finds himself torn by his angry nature and constantly tormented by his own failures and irresponsible actions.

DIXIE Book One: Open Roads lives up to my expectations of a big swig of Southern flavor. Watters takes readers on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows as the characters clash and mesh at every intersection. Mystery, debauchery and scandal play chase with trust, loyalty and power. Much like the roulette wheel you never know when or where it will stop spinning. The ride is filled with both love (or at least lust) and hate for fast cars, heavy partying and pretty girls.
I feel the same pull of lust or hate for the seemingly malevolent cornerstone of the story. At one fast turn I find this malevolency to be threatening until it flashes by like a vigilante serving up a dose of crow for wrong-doers to chew. I know my uncertainty will be just as challenged in Book Two.
I am always hesitant to read a book of a series but Dixie Book One: Open Roads ends at the perfect rest stop for me to catch my breath, cool the engine and fill the tank for the next ride.
