Mere months into recovery, Max, an alcoholic with twisted control issues, meets Sarah – the same woman that for years he’s habitually dreamt will die after a botched abduction. "Doing the next right thing," a popular AA phrase he’s picked up in the rooms, means befriending Sarah long enough to warn her and hope she takes him seriously. But when Sarah falls in love with Max, his newly sober thinking drives him to choose his overly devoted wife, and he abandons Sarah – even when it condemns her to death. When Sarah goes missing, the NYPD suspects Max’s dream may have been a pre-crime confession. The truth, all of it, lurks inside of Max, but only by drinking again does he recapture the nerve and clarity vital to free his wife, sponsor, and himself from a life imprisoned by lies.

About the Author:

Peter Rosch is what happens when a Polish drag racing varsity bowler and a beautiful but über paranoid French Canadian Air Force brat get together on a disco dance floor in glorious Albuquerque, NM. He's a recovering alcoholic who favors the run-on sentence - the one thing for which he offers no apologies. Fifteen years in NYC as an award winning writer, creative director, and commercial director in advertising has left him moderately famous in an industry filled with the very best kind of people, lunatics. His commercial work for Levi's, AXE, Rolling Stone Magazine, and more is polarizing, and you either hate it or love it because you've definitely seen it. When he isn't writing ads, penning entries for his blog LEVEL 9 PARANOIA, outlining ideas for new books, or performing as his alter ego, Joey Jo Jo, in NYC's most prolific douche rock band The Future, you will most likely find him playing fetch with his cat Target. Yes, his cat plays fetch.

Review:

"I can honestly say I was completely engaged with every sentence written in this story, I could not read it fast enough... Fantastic Stuff, A Very Strong 5 Stars." - The Kindle Book Review

"I couldn't put it down. One day, when I'm ready to adapt a book into a screenplay and direct my first narrative feature, I hope you'll allow me." - Erik Proulx, Director of Lemonade: Detroit

"Rosch expertly explores the psychology of an alcoholic... The novel tackles sobriety, truth and guilt, engrossing the reader in Max's whirlwind of problems... While depicting the realizations of a recovering alcoholic, Rosch skillfully renders a unique story of a missing woman." - Kirkus Reviews

"...to be inside the mind of a not-so former addict going through a life event that would boggle even the most sober, clear-headed person is what keeps you reading page after page without one thought of pausing for even a glass of water." - Brianna Jacobson, Little Conqueror

"...if you have never waited for a liquor store to open then you would still love the novel, perhaps subtract a star, but if you are a Chuck Palahniuk fan, add that star right back." - Mark Matthews, author of Stray and The Jade Rabbit
