Until he goes to Louisiana’s Cajun country, with hopes of finding a man who perhaps knew them. After enduring blistering heat, torment from mosquitoes, venturing into eerie, backwater swamps, and fending off alligators, snakes, and a few sinister locals, Sam finds what he had sought all of his life. He’s also given a second chance, one to leave behind a pained past that he would rather forget. But finding what he wants most means that he’ll eventually have to lose it. $0.99 on Kindle.

What a mess. This was not supposed to happen.

This isn’t where Nick Owen thought he would be by this point in life. He used to be a busy web programmer.
