The year is 2057. Larkin Bellamy and her father lived in a darker time for the United States, when the Western World had become alarmingly consumed by Socialism, and the American citizens in turn creating a resurgence of the old era of McCarthyism. Neighbors spy on neighbors and friends betray one another to avoid being in the spotlight themselves. In these turbulent times, Hadrian Bellamy chooses to pursue a lucrative yet 'less than reputable' line of work, and is forced to flee with his daughter to escape almost certain prosecution at the hands of the now extremely paranoid CIA. They seek refuge on a beautiful Caribbean island, hoping to fall under the radar of any neighboring Socialist powers and the US government alike. But their disastrous fate seems to follow them, launching the two fugitives in to a harrowing fight for survival and leaving them stranded in the lush paradise. When Larkin is ripped away from her father, she has no choice but to grasp the dark reality facing her and circumstances far more impactful than she can realize, before it's too late. Forced to evade secret service agents, armed guards, and the vile man responsible for her plight, Larkin finds herself in near impossible odds. Gaining a mysterious ally in the most unlikely of places, the two of them must navigate their way through the treacherous sparkling waters, rife with danger at every turn.

About the Author
Raechal Evett is a graduate of Texas A&M University, where she studied both Hispanic and Russian history, culture, language, and literature. She is a first-time published author of Cruel Paradise, and writer of many short stories located in a trunk in the attic somewhere. A longtime lover of languages and literature alike, Raechal's obsessions are (somewhat predictably) traveling, burying her nose in a book, photography, chocolate, and attempting crafty things from Pinterest. She is married to a chemist/biologist-turned-sales executive, who is frequently subjected to sporadic text message queries about wildlife, disasters, and states of decay when she's writing. Raechal continues to dream up new stories and adventures, while questing with her darling toddler, who genuinely believes that he is a super hero.
