The Gandy Dancer

The Gandy Dancer - Available Here:

His career is on the rocks. His ex-wife is demanding more money. A woman he can’t even remember accuses him of fathering her child. Newspaper reporter Mitch Corsini shrugs and takes another drink. However, when his estranged teenaged daughter mysteriously disappears, his life finally has a purpose: find the child he's neglected for too long and rekindle the love they once shared.  

 Mitch’s quest takes him to the Virginia mountains and his ancestral home. There, he finds himself locked in a life or death struggle to save his daughter as seventy-year-old family secrets and the fate of a long-forgotten railroad worker combine to shatter the very foundations of his world.

 The Gandy Dancer weaves parallel story lines, one modern, one set in the 1930s. Readers familiar with my first book, The Freedom Star, might appreciate the appearance of Isaac’s descendants in this fast-paced 80,000-word novel.
