It is a sunny Sunday in May, 1993. After church, a mother and her lovely fourteen-year old daughter walk three miles to a country store for cigarettes and ice cream. It is a walk members of the family often take in this rural Sulphur Springs Valley area of southeastern Arizona near the Mexican border. The mother and daughter arrive at the store in a jovial mood, trading pleasantries with customers and the owners... The daughter timidly flirts with a boy from her school. The daughter and mother leave the store in a silly mood, finger painting ice cream on their faces. They never make it home... The deputy sheriff of the county believe there has been a 'stranger abduction'. There are lots of action, interesting characters, and romance to go with this fictional account of an incident inspired by true events...events that brought tragedy to a shaken family. Don't miss this one!
ONE READER'S BOOD REVIEW:
A chilling and frightening account of a mother and daughter abduction. I appreciated that the author spared the reader of any details as to how they were treated sexually and physically. They are kept in a drugged state which affects their memory, ability to try to escape, and communicate with one another. I never lost interest in the book which was a page turner.
The role of the sheriff and his own personal struggles and successes are nicely woven in without distracting from the abduction. Well edited.
BIOGRAPHY I'm a young man in an old body, trying to catch up to myself, trying to find pieces of me I left back in a disconnected youth and the early years of manhood. I'm a stereotype of many in my generation who can play the 'blame game', yell 'foul', and 'let's start over'. But, we are what we are, the sum of all the scary kid-emotions we experienced, the gin mills and piano bars that became our sandboxes of pleasure - lotus eaters of the best (or, worst) kind, the love affairs that did not quite settle us down, the sad poetry and songs written in bars and motels along the way... A Dreamer! A Wanderlust! The world needs such fools as we to write our books, our poetry, our songs, to offset the madness that plagues the soul.
I've written eighteen books, some 400 hundred blog posts, in search of those pieces left somewhere in Appalachia and many parts of the globe. Literary gems? The readers are the ultimate judges. My writing has a clarity of style and excellent character development...I humbly suggest the reader will not be disappointed.
