Synopsis: William Perkins was twenty-seven years old, and he felt like he had spent his entire life studying. He might be a mathematics genius and computer guru, but it was obvious that his life totally sucked. He longed for change; any change, good or bad that might break the incredible boredom of university life. On a fateful summer day he got his wish. It began with disarming innocence and there was almost no hint of anything sinister lurking in the shadows. He met the most beautiful woman he had ever seen, and to his surprise she actually liked nerds. However, he soon learned there was credence in that old adage Be Careful What You Wish For. He stumbled upon a sinister secret about his family tree, and he became entwined in an evil web of murder and avarice that threatened not only his own life but everyone around him. Old truths became meaningless, and even the love of his life was not who she appeared to be. The uneventful life he had become so accustomed to vanished. He was hurled into a fierce life-and-death battle that took place not only in the real world of corporate profit, but also spilled over into his turf, into the theoretical world of cyberspace. And by his side every step of the way, was the woman he loved--and could not trust. When you read The Candy Man, you'll probably think it is science fiction, but believe me it isn't. The scary thing is, it might not even be fiction. Enjoy! Richard Alan.

Product Description: The fact that his life was at a crossroads prompted the brutal self-examination. The conclusion was not a surprise; his life sucked. William Perkins was twenty-seven years old when he came to the sobering realization that he was a full-fledged nerd who had spent his entire life in academic isolation. His ivory tower sanctuary had protected him from all the bad things in the world; the ups and downs; the threats and uncertainties; even sex. Ironically those were the very things he desperately wished to experience, and he knew they would never happen unless he broke free from his sanctuary. He decided to charge head first into the real world. No matter what happened it would be better than unending sameness. William Perkins longed for some sparkle in his life. On a magical summer day he got his wish. The Candy Man is a tale of avarice and evil, with just a touch of the supernatural. It gives a whole new meaning to the term Hell's Kitchen. You'll probably think it's science fiction, but it isn't. The scary thing is, it might not even be fiction. __ Enjoy!
