Here’s the setup –

In the Fall of 2001, John’s life has fallen off a cliff.  His six- year-old daughter,  Lucy,

needs a kidney transplant and his Durham, NC travel agency has been wrecked by the events of 9/11.  He must find a way to secure a large amount of money quickly in order to pay for Lucy’s surgery.

He’s been in tight places before but he’s currently out of solutions.

Wanda, a client of John’s travel agency, has had her livelihood hit hard by 9/11 also.  She can no longer transport cocaine via airline flights due to increased airport security.  Like John, she is a single parent  and has wanted to get out of her line of work for several years.   She needs more money to allow her and daughter Tonya, to move from Durham to California and break free of her boss, Jamel.

John and Wanda form a partnership around a plan to smuggle cocaine via cruise ships.  His industry knowledge and connections would remove the transportation risks and she could handle the distribution and selling once they brought the drugs back to Durham.

Despite being nearly killed on their first run, it worked.   Wanda coaxes John into another trip while Jamel  is becoming suspicious of Wanda.  John’s half-brother Travis, a Durham police detective battling his own demons, can’t connect the dots between John and Wanda . He continues to line his pocket with ill-gotten gains.  Lucy and John are the most important people in his life and he would gladly provide them with financial help, if only John would ask.

 How far should a father go to save his child?  Can a man and woman from completely different worlds help each other?  Could they fall in love?  And which one of these people will live to see the summer of 2002?

  5. […] Like others, I’m looking forward to Andy’s own novel, Shades of Gray. What if your six-year-old girl needs a new kidney, you run a travel agency in a  9/11 slump, and a client ask you to help her smuggle cocaine via cruise ships (without  the same level of security as airlines)? That’s his plot, and I can’t wait to see “which one of these people will live to see the summer of 2002.” […]

    so pleased to have purchased only my second “signed by author” book, and to be getting 2 signings by author and your cover artist is great but most of all thanks for highlighting the TOMS shoes, never knew what it was so had a look and solved some Christmas present ideas-like the idea of a double giving. You have achieved quite the gift package here and I haven’t even got the book yet!
