Jacob Morais is just a normal kind of guy. He enjoys his life and wouldn't change a thing. That is, not until a dangerous buffoon lumbers into the White House blatantly unfit for office, promoting chaos. Foreseeing wide scale disaster, Jacob stores emergency supplies in his basement, buys a gun, and secures fake ID in case he needs to disappear. Meanwhile back in his day-to-day world he is recruited by an old friend to join her fast-growing e-commerce start-up. When he discovers that sketchy investors are using the start-up as a front, Jacob stays in the company to help his friend expose the investors' nefarious scheme, which puts his life at significant risk. It's not the collapse of public order for which he prepared, but for Jacob it has the same imperative: Do what you must to survive.

About the Author
I was born in Montreal, Canada. I was a nerdy kid (still am), always into books, and I wanted to write as well as read them, so I carried a Hermes Baby typewriter to Europe after graduating from college in order to start on my first novel. I lugged the typewriter through the UK and then down to Torremolinos, Spain, where I attempted in my tiny hotel room to put words on paper. Not so easy, I discovered, and shipped the typewriter back home. Later, much later, I returned to the task. By then, I’d moved to the Boston area and become a frequent rider on Red Line subway trains, where commuters see their Departed in my novel GHOSTS ON THE RED LINE. By then, also, I’d seen the world as a management consultant at one of the premier consulting firms, including time spent in fascinating Hong Kong where the story told in my second novel THE TRAIL OF MONEY unfolds. Both novels feature as a main protagonist Harry Forrest West, by amazing coincidence a management consultant, although his projects are far weirder and more exciting than mine ever were.
