CJ is in two minds. His instincts are adventurous, but his father has drummed caution and steadiness into him. About to be persuaded into an arrangement he doesn’t want, a casual encounter one night opens his eyes to less confining possibilities than a boring marriage.
This thriller is filled with suspense and adventure. It explores what would have happened to CJ had he made the other choice that night. He divides: C errs on the side of caution, while J seeks adventure. A complication in his life is a bully from school who’s intent on revenge for the three years CJ caused him to spend in prison. But to the ex-con, CJ is one person. How do C and J, as separate people with different approaches to life, deal with the threats they must face? C has to handle his at home, while J meets his on his travels through South America. How does it turn out for these two characters? Are there full circles in there somewhere?
For characters, there’s CJ himself (or is that themselves?), there’s Martin his nerdy friend, Barry Castle the bully, Gudrun (don’t mess with her!) and tearful Lisa (oh gawd!). CJ is almost complete. It’s been professionally edited and is now up for proof reading prior to publication soon.
