In this daring fictional memoir, Ken Dickson continues the story from where he left off in his real-life psychiatric misadventure, Detour from Normal. While confined in a high-security psychiatric facility in Phoenix, Arizona, Ken experienced a dramatic change that left him in a heightened state of consciousness. As he marveled at his new mind-set, he wondered, could this be contagious?
Now Ken has returned to a normal life, but his former manic visions are never far from thought. Without warning, people around him begin to change in the contagious fashion that he once dared to imagine. Seizing the chance of a lifetime, he convinces them to join him on a bold endeavor that could alter humanity's destiny.
Meanwhile, a few miles away, Willy Lemm, a thief with a reputation for turning violent in record time, celebrates his biggest heist ever. Besides theft, Willy has another obsession: finding his brother's killer and driving a knife through his heart. Unbeknownst to him, that killer is a close acquaintance: Frank Stone, a cunning writer with a penchant for turning truth into tabloid lies. Frank has just finished his best piece yet, unexpectedly setting Ken and Willy toward a cataclysmic head-on collision.
Woven into the narrative is a recipe for change itself. As we witness characters' transformations and see the impacts on their lives, we cannot help but wonder: Is this merely the continued ravings of a madman or a foreshadowing of a grand future that is ours for the taking? Find out by listening to The Road to Amistad, where nothing is quite what it seems and each bend in the road reveals unexpected twists, turns, and surprises.

I agree that is a tough book to review. It's not like anything I've read before yet it kept me turning virtual pages anxious to find out what would become of Ken, his family and the other real life a characters that were introduced in Detour From Normal. I would recommend this book and definitely suggest getting audible version so you too can enjoy The Road to Amistad and the remarkable narration of Michael Rubino. I'll be waiting for next book by Ken Dickson.
I loved the narration done by Michael Rubino. Michael did an amazing job with giving each character a voice of their own, with accents, tones, and language that made it easy to discern who was speaking even before the writing told you.
I have not listened to Michael's other stories but I would love to listen to his future books. His easy going and relaxed voice was enjoyable without being at all monotone. He gave voices to each character that made is fun to listen to and easy to understand who was speaking.
I look forward to any future narrations by Michael Rubino. I really enjoyed his style.
