How many secrets can the Queen City conceal?

After a head injury on the basketball court, Tony Malone, a firefighter, confides in his best friend and captain, Steve, about a strange dream he had while unconscious.

Tony struggles to live with his secret until a fire opens up a whole new world.

Charlotte, NC - 1996

Chuck Thomas began his ascent to greatness at a graphic design firm headed by Elizabeth Wheaton, the battle-ax of the Queen City corporate scene.

Their idyllic life is halted by a suspicious brush with death leaving Valerie once again picking up the pieces.

Two Souls, Too Many Questions

Literally torn between two worlds, Valerie must once again deal with the loss of her husband and come to terms with what happened to Chuck Thomas and who Tony Malone really was.

Read an Excerpt:

“Hey, so what? Oooh, I said ‘Shamu.’ Big whoop. C’mon man. You know she's been called that and worse before. Besides, she knows she’s freaking gorgeous now. That’s how she stole you from me. We had a good thing going and she messed it all up!” Grant’s demeanor was gradually showing more of his intoxication, but Chuck couldn’t help himself. In one swift motion, Chuck lifted Grant off the chair by his collar and pinned him against the brick wall beside the door.

“I’m done with you! You have always been an entitled narcissist, but I will not… hear me, Grant… I will NOT allow you cause problems in my marriage. I put up with all of your snide remarks and inability to take responsibility, but I’m just as bad as you if I let this slide.” With his forearm pressed firmly against Grant’s windpipe, Chuck was thankful for the shadow he noticed creeping over his friend’s face by the headlights of a cab making its way up the drive. “Your ride is here.” He released Grant from his grasp and took a step back.

“You’ll be sorry you overreacted tomorrow, Chuck. I’m the one who has always been here for you.” Grant readjusted his collar and cut a look at Chuck.

“No. When you sober up, you’ll be sorry. I need you to understand that you’re not welcome here anymore. Don’t call, don’t text, don’t step one foot on my property. Do you understand? I’m done with this, I’m done with you.”
