In Rays Right author Sumadi Hendrix narrates the tale of the Right family. The Right family is headed up by patriarch Ray Right; who’s managed to become a successful entrepreneur amassing four Las Vegas casinos. Of course to succeed in the mob based gambling industry Ray has been forced to get his hands dirty and assemble his own crime syndicate. His success has also brought about a fair amount of enemies but alas heavy is the head that wears the crown. Just when Ray prepares to turn his crown over to his eldest son Mario the family becomes embroiled in a deadly war with a formidable adversary.
Mario Right has been preparing to take over his dad’s empire for what seems like his entire life. But when the violence strikes close to home its all hands on deck as Mario gets some much needed assistance from his siblings. Jay Right is the impulsive, untamed younger brother who requires a tight leash while Chris Right is the artistic brother who wanted no part of the Right illegal empire until the violence erupts at his wedding ceremony. Rounding out the Right clan are the two daughters Janet and Sasha. Both women are independent and enjoy living outside their father’s tight grasp but for very different reasons. Janet has been living out her fantasy as a stripper while Sasha although enrolled is college her and her girlfriends are in a constant battle to out slut each other.
Although the plot and cast of characters may seem intriguing Mr. Hendrix’s novel is hindered by implausible events and horrendous editing. It almost seems as if the book was unedited; for example the book is set in Las Vegas but 90% of the time throughout the novel it’s referred to as Los Vegas. In almost all of the sex scenes characters emitted growns instead of groans or people had ideals instead of ideas. If the error occurred once it could be plausible but almost each time those words were used they were used in the wrong context. Even character names like Arthur and Darius differentiated in spellings from page to page. In a novel that’s almost 500 pages it made the book almost unbearable.
