Nigel Hawkins was one of the biggest drug dealers in Baltimore City. However, after years of drug use and resorting to crime to support his habit, he catches a charge that lands him in jail to serve a lengthy prison sentence. When he returns to society, he is drug-free and now a born again Christian. Nigel is also determined to reconnect with his son, JR, who has followed in his footsteps by getting caught up in the drug game. JR is torn between his love for the thug life and the love that he harbors deep inside for his father, who seeks to redeem his soul from his sinful ways. What unfolds in this story is a host of real life events that force both men to make gut wrenching decisions that will forever alter the course of both of their lives. Just Like Daddy gives you a gut wrenching picture of the impact of generational curses on the lives of Black men who are forced to survive in the midst of the tangled web of drugs, crime, and poverty that engulf the inner cities of America. It also touches on the power of spirituality and redemption in breaking down these obstacles. Thomas Long pulls no punches in delivering the realist depiction and insight into the life of a drug addict since Donald Goines' Dopefiend. He brings you his own unique brand of educational urban fiction with a twist that is sure to create an emotional connection between the reader and the main characters as the plot thickens. This book is a must read for any father seeking to undo years of absence from the life of his male child in making an effort to work towards developing a healthy father son relationship in the face of insurmountable odds and social pressure.
