Overview

"Shannon, I don't understand. What do you want me to be?"

"See James, that's the point. You're life is not about what everyone else wants you to be. It's about what you want to be, about finding out what makes you happy."

The Last Call is the story of James Patrick Cameron, a man in his late twenties who grows unhappy with his dysfunctional life-a life he is desperate to change but feels powerless to do so.

James lives and works in the same blue-collar town where he was raised. He hangs out with his two high school friends at the neighborhood bar. He works for his alcoholic father, James Patrick "Booby" Cameron Sr., the owner of a local contracting company, and is terrorized by his father's vice president, Mike Munro, who has a raging drug addiction.

James moves aimlessly through life, drinking too much and caring too little. When he meets Shannon O'Rourke, a woman who motivates him to put his life in order, he knows he must make some changes. He starts working out, avoids his nightly appointments at the bar, and becomes more active in his father's business. But an escalating series of unfortunate events culminates in a decision that will change his life forever ...

    Left me wanting more!

    ¿The Last Call¿ is about James Patrick Cameron, a guy in his late 20¿s that is dealing with his dysfunctional life, and the friends, family, co-workers, and his small New Jersey town that helped make it so. He meets Shannon O¿Rourke at a business party and begins to see there is more to life then his job and drinking with his friends. Coming from a Science Fiction, Fantasy and Comic Book background, literary novels are not exactly a genre I gravitate to, but I will always love a good story and I¿m a sucker for character development within a good story. ¿The Last Call¿ has a strong, although sometimes disturbing storyline. The characters are well developed and have a `real life¿ feel to them. Consequences and actions of the characters¿ reactions to situations are well thought-out and developed so that anyone can relate to the characters plight. The story plays out like a well-made `TV drama¿ or `feature film¿. There is a clear direction with the plot from the first page, and the journey of these characters keeps those pages turning! A good mix of humor, and real life situations, ¿The Last Call¿ most definitely puts ¿FUN¿ into dysfunctional!
