Our man Giorgio is returning to one of the trade offices via Cannes for plenty of social relaxation after several months in the field. Instead of enjoying the pleasures of rest, Giorgio is sent a sealed message: ‘Return via Athens with immediate effect’. Giorgio teams up with his old friend Emilio to find some secret financial files which have recently been stolen – who took them, and why? The girls in D section who source Giorgio’s messages and keep his secrets are looking forward to his return and looking forward to him livening the place up. Also anticipating Giorgio’s return is a bodyguard who has certain feelings for him, even though he hid her exotic glittery shoes. And the other woman, whose side is she really on? Did she really want Giorgio? All are involved, for good or bad. The secret financial files will open a door to a world of money, and the people that Giorgio and Emilio are tracing all have their own reasons for stealing the files. All characters are caught in the midst of the struggles between love and trust, loss and grief, and the grand lifestyle that they all aspire to. In this lifestyle is a world of power and intrigue, and the invisible wealth of others. A secret, shadowy environment filled with cars, yachts and executive jets. There are some who live even deeper within this lifestyle. In an undefined tenebrous existence in the world of finance, there is always a price to pay, but who will pay this time? In this life of shadows, will they survive, with or without visible scars?

Gateway is a story that reflects the modern generation drug war against kids as they are growing up. This is a story about friendship, love, addiction, self destruction, and the search for salvation. Gateway is unique in the way it follows Kellen in a first-person narrative in part one and second- person through part two of the novel. When part one of the book comes to a close, the intensity of the story in the final moments perfectly transitions into a second-person narrative, moving the reader into the eyes of Kellen. Kellen was a young boy when his mother died in a fatal car accident, her death devastated his family. When Kellen's mother died she was having an affair with a married man who miraculously survived the accident. Kellen and his brother are raised by their father; he raises them the best he can through his constant loneliness and depression. As a young teen Kellen is sent away to military school and is forced to grow up fast. He learns to fend for himself, trusting no one but a few select friends to confide in. The story takes place in Kellen's hometown of St. Louis; the Gateway City. The towering beauty of the Gateway Arch, and what it represents, is offset by the secretive underworld in which Kellen operates. In the shadows, and behind closed doors, perceptions change quickly and danger is ever present. Some of Kellen's friends make it out alive, others are not as fortunate. Follow Kellen as he battles the demons of his past, awakens the demons of his present, and later battles himself and his surroundings in an attempt to rise from the ashes and find salvation.
