About the Book

Within a labyrinth of intrigue, one man´s shocking revelations from the past lead to a greater understanding of life´s universal values during a heroic but traumatic journey of redemption.

A body is recovered from a river in April 1990. Months earlier, a young John Lennon fan and an elderly Irishman met in a U.S. hospital. A groundskeeper completed the triad. Before long, the past begins to unravel and a connection to WWII is uncovered. Secrets flourish, but nothing is what it seems.

Through tragedy, a disease and a modern literary masterpiece, an extraordinary twist of fate awaits the three.
