Experience the conflict of her death, his father’s remarriage and then his father’s death with his loss of inheritance.Future plans change dramatically when he meets a real father figure. When this mentor dies, his grip on reality is a struggle until rage drives his first murder. Rationalizing this act as being positive, he now has a hobby with benefits. His mind quickly elevates the murders to the level of art.Dark humor allows the reader to experience a mind on the edge…a character you can both love and hate. Shadows from his youth provide insight into a personality capable of viewing the world on multiple levels…some real and some fantasy.It appears the person he loves and trusts most is his brother, a homicide detective. Their lives weave together in a complex dance between reality and insanity, with the balance broken by the love of a woman. The result is one individual in the grips of a split personality driven by the desire to kill his past. Reality is definitely a state of mind, not a place.Born in Kentucky, Frank J.
