He's a murderer, a mental patient, and a friend.
Jacob Duke doesn't want to grant your wish--the trouble is, he must.Armed with zero special powers, Jacob has six days to grant any wish he hears or it's curtains for the wisher. That's dead, you know--deceased, expired, pushing up petunias.
Be careful what you wish for.
Jacob has returned to his childhood home--the Dover Psychiatric Hospital for the Criminally Insane--where he discovers that psych ward isn't quite through with him yet. Motown, Jacob's friend from his years at Dover, carries a secret that pits one life against another... with Jacob stuck in the middle.
Stonefly is a gritty, real-world thriller with a single drop of magic in the recipe. It explores the true commitment of friendship, an alternative logic for why people die, and the dark corners found within all of our souls.

(Stonefly) is amazingly and intricately crafted. The writing is superb, and the reader feels immediately that he is in the hands of a master author.  There's no weakness of narration. The story line is cohesive and compelling. This is the best-written book I've read for as far back as I can remember.

This book holds universal appeal for all...  My young adult readers will be hooked by the plot line and the suspense. Well, that is also what will hook my adult friends.  But they'll also be surprised at how well the story is written. -J. Pickett of Book Lens
