“Do you remember your first kiss?” Adrian Lucard asks Will Taylor—right before offering him a second chance to save his first love, Ami. Is it a lunatic’s promise? A dream that will end leaving only the reality of Will’s hollow life?
Ami Fleming disappeared during their sophomore year in college and if Will wants to alter the past, to save her, he must pay a price. He must confront not only his self-doubt and aching heart but also find the strength to confront Professor Raker and the secret truth about that day back in 1999.
Can he reclaim his life? Can he find within himself No Greater Love?
If you enjoy intrigue, then you'll enjoy this. The first mystery is the author. The story is written from the hero's point of view and so convincingly, I couldn't help wondering whether the author's chosen name was done so with careful deliberation.
Almost immediately you learn the hero has an analytical mind. He notices the minutiae, the unusual, but he keeps his head down and doesn't rock the boat. He takes one day at a time neither looking for nor expecting his routine to change.
When, one day Will Taylor is summoned to his boss's office his boss presents him with a life altering challenge. A challenge that may cost him his life, or... It may just help him find out what happened to the love of his life.
The unfolding events challenge every skill Will posses as he comes face to face with pure evil.
This story has depth and impact you would not expect to find unveiled in thirty-seven pages. It takes twists and turns you'd enjoy in a full-length book. That K Bruce Justice achieves this in a short story is a testament to his skilful writing.
A story well worth reading.
