Sanctuary of Lies
by Chad Bishop
GENRE: Thriller (domestic)
BLURB: Sanctuary of Lies
ISABELLA NUNEZ owns a computer firm in Brooklyn with her lover JACOB COSTA. Accepting her infertility they have a blue nose pit bull called Justice as their “child” and live simple lives as techy nerds. Isabella’s idyllic life is shattered when several days after her lover’s ex-wife, SIMONE JOHNS, reported death, sends Jacob an email to come save their child, he didn’t know they had.
EXCERPT: Sanctuary of Lies
Jacob Costa returned his cell to the night table. Simone Johns had been dead for 3 days, she could wait for him to read her text. Next to him Isabella Nunez, his fiancée, reached for him.
“Jake?” she murmured sleep muffling her voice. Bella was a treasure. She was as subtle as a freight truck when it came to her emotions and as brilliant as a mad scientist. He didn’t answer her, if he did they’d both be in bed for another hour and, it was time for him to get out of bed, go to work and reply to his dead ex.
Jacob turned onto his back and listened to the dark of their condo. He took inventoryof his surroundings before he moved. Bella had already fallen back to sleep, her snoring signaling her retreat. Jacob could hear the birds chirping in front of the living room window. The faucet was dripping in their adjacent bathroom. When he was sure all of the sounds were accounted for, Jacob rolled to his side and put his legs over the side of the bed. If nothing else foster care had taught him to make sure to assess your surroundings before you moved. You’d only have one opportunity to surprise the enemy.
He thought about looking at the text but, he stopped himself. He wouldn’t let Simone upset his schedule. Necessities had to come first and then he could be prepared to handle the problems of the day. Worrying never solved a problem. By following the daily regimen it gave you more time to think and it let the enemy worry over your lack of response.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Being a child of divorce, I have experienced both sides of the American Family. I understand there is a loss to the family unit, that no longer has a father in it. In the face of that loss, I discovered a woman can rise to the occasion and not replace a man but offer her own strength, moral compass and guidance. In this environment a child can grow up feeling loved, accepted and ultimately successful in life.
Those experiences in my formative years have made me more aware of the women around me and the daily feats of resourcefulness and ingenuity that goes unnoticed and unacknowledged by society. My stories highlight societal issues and the ever-changing challenges women face that I’ve observed during my life.
