Chapter 1 of YOUNG JUNIUS - fYoung Junius is available now from Tyrus Books wherever books are sold. More info at http://sethharwood.com

In 1987, fourteen-year-old Junius Posey sets out on the cold Cambridge (Mass.) streets to find his brother’s killer in a cluster of low-income housing towers—prime drug-dealing territory. After committing a murder to protect his friend, he finds himself without protection from retribution. His mother gives him fifty dollars and instructions to run, but Junius refuses to live a life in hiding. Instead, shocked by the violence he’s created and determined to see its consequences, he returns to the towers to complete his original mission.

"Harwood’s cutaway view of a single bloody day in a housing project is an impressive feat . . . Harwood’s empathy runs deeply indeed." -- Booklist on YOUNG JUNIUS

"Searing . . . a vicious black comedy of murderous errors. Harwood pulls no punches." -- Publishers Weekly on Seth Harwood's Young Junius

“You have to figure it out,
is what it comes down to.” Junius fingered one of the long tassels of the curtain ties. In oneof the funeral parlor’s front rooms, his older brother lay in a coffin,not yet twenty and done with all the living he’d ever do.Here in a side room, it was just him, Willie Stash,and a small,ugly nine.“I try this, you put me on?”“Shit,” Willie smiled his signature smile, the one that showed thebig gaps in his top
and 
bottom rows of teeth. “You do this one, I putyou in charge of Teale Square. How that sound?” Junius smiled. He had no crew, just the cheap nine on thetable—if he took it—and his boy Little Elf. But the gun gave him somuch more than he’d had yesterday, even
with
a living brother.He picked it up.
Beretta
, it read along the side.All right.”Outside, Elf came up to Junius before he made the corner. He’dbeen waiting on the steps of the funeral parlor for Junius to finish with Willie. They walked a block before either of them spoke.Then Junius stopped, turned toward his man. “This,” he said,pulling up his shirt to show the Beretta tucked into the front of his jeans.
