Professor Jeremy Scratch is a human taxidermist … and an assassin of serial killers. The Odd Profession of Jeremy Scratch is a slipstream story that crosses over and under conventional spy fiction genre boundaries.
His closest friend in college, Professor Tunji Farabi, is now an African revolutionist who is the Chair of African Studies at NYU. Both men see themselves as being on good and honorable missions. Their personal visions, however, are not viewed through the same glasses. Farabi’s organization, SAGE, kills innocent people in many different countries on five continents.
The professors deal with three different issues: death and dying, worldwide racism, and human preservation. They arrive at a philosophical crossroads with each other and the question the reader will ponder is how strange are their worlds and is what they are doing good… Together the utopian and dystopian endings may be remarkably just, hopeful, and human.
