Jimmy Raynot is the kind of man who grew up in his own shadow always hearing about how much, “potential” he had. To say he’s failed to live up to it, is an understatement. Well into his 30s he’s only partially employed and on the verge of failing as a father and husband. When Jimmy accidentally stops a daytime mugging, he will get one more chance to prove he’s as good a man as people thought he could be. The two other men involved in the mugging, the victim and the mugger will also face the challenges of living up to expectations or beyond them.
It’s a quick-paced novel with heart and humor.
Available on Amazon in paperback and electronic formats.
