However, he is double-crossed by his friend who knows he can't kill him,... read
A review of Mr. Diarco - 2nd Draftby asankagurusinghe on 07/30/2012This was a story that kept me reading to the end. I thought the voice and dialogue were good.

To him, smoking and selling pot merits a major telling-off, while him committing various criminal acts doesn't. It is underlined... read
