Jimi Hendrix once said that when the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. Grant Davis, the title character in the mystery/thriller Who Okayed This?! The Riveting Life of Grant Davisfinds himself at that tipping point when his friends turn against him one night and inject him with a possibly lethal toxin, leaving him with broken relationships and a race against time to find an antidote. Written by award-winning author Philip E. Barrington, the book takes readers on a breathless quest around the world, with Grant caught between the forces of greed, corruption, and his own cynicism. Will he give in to despair or embrace hope despite his circumstances?

“One of the beautiful things about the story, I think, is how deeply it captures Grant’s turbulent thoughts and emotions,” says Philip E. Barrington. “Grant is not a superhero, one of those people who leaps into action with no hesitation, fear, or doubts. Instead, he’s just like most of us: he must choose to be brave even as his world is crumbling and his friends are deserting him.”

The action in Who Okayed This?! is fast-paced, with Grant flying from one locale to the next to find clues and an antidote for the toxin that is weakening his body. Philip E. Barrington reveals that juxtaposed against the rapid shifts in setting are Grant’s internal struggles as he contemplates the actions of his closest friends.

“He has always valued the relationships in his life, including his family members, friends, and peers,” says Philip E. Barrington. “It makes their betrayal of him even harder to understand, and he questions both himself and the way life seems to work.”

Grant is thrown into a world of corruption on both sides of the law, which only heightens his confusion and cynicism. He is ultimately pushed to decide whether beauty and hope can exist alongside the darker attributes of human nature and what that means for his future.

“Grant is forced to be courageous as he undertakes an emotional journey and evades his enemies,” Philip E. Barrington says. “He comes to understand that if he sees people and life with his heart, not with his eyes, he can see the goodness in everyone on a much deeper level even though he might never find all of the answers to his questions.”
