After a horrific fire levels the gorgeous Sonoma Valley villa they had rented, vacationing friends scramble to find alternative accommodations. They laugh their way through a series of snafus until their situation turns suddenly dire when a woman in their party goes missing. Making matters worse, local authorities are more interested in asserting arson allegations than in listening to a tale of abduction. Searching for clues while dodging the cops, the traveling companions run up against some shadowy figures intent on keeping certain secrets buried beneath the rubble of Chez Paradise. With nowhere else to turn, the woe begotten tourists are left relying on just one man, an out of shape, retired detective, in desperate attempt to escape their hell?

Author Biography

Jerry and his wife reside outside of Chicago where he serves as a financial executive. Enjoying their dad's fanciful tales, his children inspired Jerry to write a book. He ultimately penned Jackson Choice in 2005. Forty Acres was released not too much later (2006). Jerry's latest work, Chez Paradise, darkly humorous, is a suspenseful adventure novel.
