Philly Style and Philly Profile Audible.com Reviews!


on November 23, 2016
The story follows the life of Carl, a basketball star, whose life is now suddenly under threat, by the gangs who inhabit the city of Philadelphia. His good looks, name and the glory that followed him, only make him a likely target in the eyes of Jake Meyers, a master drug dealer, who is jealous of him. Andy, a sportswriter, gets involved unknowingly, when he is handed over a bag, which has killed all those in possession of it. The unfolding of events, over the course of a few days, surrounding the brown leather bag, unravels many mysteries.

The book showcases how good and evil coexist and a handful of people’s attempts, to change a society involved in drugs and gangs. The author takes you on a journey, through the streets of Philadelphia, keeping you in suspense, along the whole way.

While neither the title, nor the cover does justice to the storyline, the old adage “Don’t judge a book by its cover” stands true in this case. The story is very well written, providing insightful glimpses into the lives of the ordinary citizens in Philadelphia, during the 70’s and their struggles with gangsters and drug peddlers.

This is the second book of the Andy Pilgrim trilogy.While the title does not try to explain the book,that was the author`s intent.The title refers to something special, specific to the city of Philadelphia only. You have to read the book very carefully to understand what Julius is trying to say. He is being pervasive on purpose. This second book leads into the final book of the trilogy, “Ghost of Atlanta”

“Philly Style, Philly Profile” takes place in the 70’s.Andy, a black man, works for the Philly Bulletin.He is immediately confronted by one of the many problems that black men had to deal with then and now…RACISM.That`s just one central issue. Added, we find out that he is slated to cover high school sports and we are immediately introduced to 2 more very dangerous threats…DRUGS and GANGS.

Andy gets caught up deeply in this mix when he befriends Carl, an up and coming basketball player whose getting ready to go off to college in just a few days. I won`t spoil the story for you but I will say that it`s extremely fast-paced and relevant for the times. Of course all cities big and small sadly still face these same issues.

You will read this and, once you do, you`ll want to continue the saga in “Ghost of Atlanta”.I would be remiss if I did not take a moment and mention the fantastic editing in this super story. I read this, looking for mistakes and I found very few. My hat`s off to Julius’ editor, Moneysaver Editing. Keep writing Julius, great job!
