Overview

Within the space of a few chaotic days, Emily Rhodes not only uncovers the truth about the serial philandering of her husband, but also loses her job, house, marriage and her sense of self worth, as a result of her husband's lust, greed and lies.

While she attempts to come to terms with the dramatic changes in her life and adjust to the financial hardship, loss of friends and her dignity, her ex husband continues flaunting his new and very young girlfriend around the small city in which they live - but she refuses to leave.

Advised to move away to a bigger city and a fresh start, Emily resists, as unknown to others, she has a family tie that she cannot walk away from, no matter the pain that her staying causes. When she finally secures a new job and with it, a sense that her life might at last be returning to a degree of normality and routine, long kept lies, secrets and the insatiable pelf of those close to her begin to surface, and she is forced to accept, and then fight the ugly truth that they hold.

Money, murder and greed make very good bedfellows, and as Emily unwittingly discovers, the men in her life are also much closer to each other than she could ever have imagined. Until she can escape from the clutches and their deceit and lust for ill gotten gains, she will never be able to put the shattered pieces of her life back together.

Meet the Author

Derek Haines is an author of fiction, historical fiction, essays and poetry and writes his books from a view of what fascinates him and not from a formula based on one theme or genre. Starting with poetry before moving into essays and novels, his writing is varied but is always written in a style that communicates with and engages his readers.

Most of all, the stories told by Derek Haines are about people, their feelings, regrets, hopes and struggles with life. Ordinary people, often a loser, but with extraordinary qualities that makes their story worth telling. While some stories reflect his own thoughts and beliefs, others are told from the view of characters who are sometimes dark and complex or childishly open. With splashes of allegory, black humour or simple satire, his stories can develop from the simplistic to the complicated and back again leaving the reader to decide if it is time to laugh or cry. Or both.

Born in Australia, but now living in Switzerland with his wife and his dog, his stories cross a wide geographical range but often draw from elements of his life and experiences in the two countries he calls home. From the rugged, dry and hot desert country of Australia and its crowded cities to the caf├ęs of Europe and the peaks of the Swiss Alps. The hustle and bustle of Sydney to the quiet life of the Swiss countryside.

When not writing, he is usually doing what he equally enjoys. Teaching English.
