by Walter M. Holmes When Harry Tinsay takes his client Hazel out for lunch, he does not know the foundations on which he has built his life will be shattered. A chance meeting with an old American friend precipitates a chain of events that takes his carefully structured life apart. Worst of all, Harry does not grasp what is happening and up to the final, tragic denouement, he still thinks his intellect and understanding of the intricacies of humanity will see him through. Set in the 1980s, when the world seemed to be a simpler place, Harry is confronted by events that overwhelm him. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Walter M.
