"Joe's eyelids opened slowly. The dim lighting proved pleasant and unharmful to his wide pupils as the four lamps flickered in each corner of the room. The walls seemed to wiggle from the sallow glow, and each face surrounding him bore crisp shadows that vividly traced their features in the low light. They resembled fleshy skeletons."
"...a most enjoyable read—and very well-written..." Anne Shelander, Associate Publisher, Harbor House, on The Circle of Six.
Joe Stonelli has found a good reason to break the law—for justice. His best friend has been wrongfully imprisoned for murder, and the police investigation has ended. With the trial only a few weeks ahead, Joe utilizes identity fraud to gain insight into the life of the deceased. What he finds is spiritually unnerving, but the adventure becomes his fervor.
