Flashback by Kevin Mark Smith

He's on the verge of making his dreams come true... Then a dream, a dead client, and a mysterious stranger shatter his world...

Kenneth Cartwright, Attorney at Law, is a success by all the world's standards. He's even landed the client that will earn him the law partnership he desperately craves. Yet, a simpler, happier life haunts his dreams, making him regret his life choices. Just as he begins to see hope of that life becoming reality, those connected to his wealthy client begin dying. Can Kenneth solve the murders before success destroys everyone he loves?

Kenneth's nightly flashbacks are to a simpler life, one not nearly as successful as the one he's living. Why does he wish the dreams were reality? More important, why do the dreams feel more real than reality itself? Will the trappings of success destroy him and everyone he loves before he discovers the truth behind his dreams?

Stacy stumbles across a sad yet successful lawyer in a coffee shop. How can someone who looks so successful be so empty? As their friendship grows they discover there's more to life than just success, and that the love of money truly is the root of all evil. Will they survive the evil closing in? Will Ken finally discover the joy he's been missing in his life?

Parallel life, double life, fantasy, wishful thinking, dreams or is he just plain nuts? Attorney Ken Cartwright doesn’t know exactly what happens when he finally closes his eyes at night. All he knows is that he’s desperate for something in both lives he experiences; something he’s missing; something that will plug the hole that’s leaking all the happiness away. This lengthy novel featuring a tricky legal case, espionage, plenty of thrills and car chases…something for everyone. A little romance, a little danger…whoo! Especially for those weapons geeks, you’ll enjoy the author’s nitty gritty attention to details. Filled with intriguing characters, from Ken and his sometimes family, to a special woman who makes the family-less Ken’s heart open up and beat faster, to the old man who fears he’s made a dreadful mistake and needs help, there’s definitely a storyline for all readers. Told from multiple viewpoints, even the bad guys, readers will jump right into and out of the lives of the principal players. I’m not sold on the definition of angel in Smith’s story, but it is fiction, and I can live with that. Flashback is ultimately a story of finding faith and family, and learning who to trust. Nicely done.

Truly unique!  This is no cooky-cutter book.  There are many moments that made me wonder if I had become a character in "Alice Through the looking Glass."  It's easy to spot  who's on the wrong side of the law--or is it?  What is real or imaginary?  What is reality, anyway?  "Flashback" is full of mystery, romance, spirituality, and suspense.  Not only is it hard to put down, it's one of those books I can't quit thinking about now that I've finished it.  Sort of like "The Sound and the Fury", I'm left with the urge to go back and read the book again now that I understand all of its intricacies.  Or do I??  CHavel

Affluent Dallas attorney, Kenneth Cartwright, was living a life driven by his passion for success. Something he thought he’d acquire by becoming the lawyer his grandfather had been. But on a hot Monday morning, taking a break in a coffee shop, Ken questioned himself if the path he had chosen so many years before had been the right one. An overwhelming sadness enveloped him as memories of another life, one with a wife and children, clouded his vision. His dream life and now life parallel each other in most ways, but veered off at the outcome. That’s when he meets Stacy. A few days later Ken received a referral and a multilayered case riddled with fraud, deceit, and murder. As he falls in love with Stacy, he discovers there’s more to life than wealth and achievement. Mr. Smith writes a very compelling novel. There’s edge-of-your-seat suspense as well as a depth in character development that has the reader identifying with the players in this gripping saga. The unexpected ending completes the story.
