After completing his second book, Escape from the Pines in February of 2006, Everett took off on his seventh cross country solo motorcycle adventure. Braving reckless eighteen wheelers, rain, and over one hundred degree temperatures he drove helmetless in shorts and a t-shirt from New Jersey to Las Vegas through thirteen states. In Boulder, Utah, where he'd begun writing his first book, The Crow Flies, Everett was inspired to begin work on this, his third novel. His latest work explores politics, religion, life and death. It is written from the perspective of a man who is killed in a motorcycle accident. After the reality of the event sets in, with the help of his Conscience, they beg, barter, and attempt to steal their way back to the living. The afterlife is not as expected, with heaven and hell much more bizarre. As this clever duo deal with the forces above and below, pitting each against the other to trick them into doing their bidding, this adventure explores the brevity of life and the questionable finality of death while exposing the corrupt forces of good and evil.
