Private Investigator, Rich Lacey, is hired to get incriminating evidence
against a man fraudulently collecting insurance money on a worker’s
compensation claim. Rufus Stamford’s case leads Lacey deep into the
backwoods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where Stamford has been setting
up a new life for himself. Everything goes fine until Lacey suspiciously
develops a flat tire out in the middle of nowhere, forcing him to get
Stamford’s help. The two end up spending the evening together, where
Lacey hears the other side of the story. Suddenly, Lacey finds himself
in the unusual position of weighing out the morals of his profession.

About the author

I took to books at an early age and can still remember my father reading J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit to me at bedtime. When I could read on my own, my mother brought home books from the library for my siblings and me. She tells me, that I would look at the covers and say "not interested", but if she left them on my night stand I couldn't help, but devour them--the genres and titles didn't seem to matter. Growing up the oldest of five children outside the city of Chicago, our house was always teeming with activity--so it may be no wonder that I enjoyed staying up late to read when things were quiet. There was always something transcendent about disappearing into another world while the rest of the house slept. Books taught me so much about myself and the world around.

I've crossed through a few different genres trying to find my voice but mostly dwell in fantasy, science fiction, and literary fiction. A few authors who have inspired me are: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Frank Herbert, Richard Adams, J.K. Rowling, Douglas Adams and William Shakespeare.
