His marriage was quickly unraveling! His modest house was under foreclosure! And his car was about to be repossessed! In addition, he faced an impossible, romantic, situation-vis-a-vis a woman with whom hed once worked. Paul was sorely tempted to steal 1, 000 from his employer! He struggled to resist! Then, when his wife announced that she was taking his four children-and moving in with her parents some 350 miles away-he took the money! And ran!

About this title:
About the Author: George was born in Detroit, Michigan, in the early 1930s, and he grew up during a time before a microwaved dinner was eaten in front of the TV, expired nuclear-powered spy satellites dropped back to earth, or violence from half the world away was posted on YouTube two seconds after it occurred. It was a time when boys played baseball in sandlots, girls played house, teenagers went to family-rated movies, families enjoyed the same radio program, and nothing was better than a great mystery novel. During the Korean conflict, George served in the navy. Afterward, he returned to Detroit, married, and sired seven children. He spent most of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s managing rent-a-car agencies in Detroit, Chicago, New York City, Buffalo, central New Jersey, and Houston-before embarking on his greatest passion-writing stories and novels. Over the next couple of decades, he has written hundreds of short stories on a contract basis, while privately writing a half-dozen mystery novels having a nostalgia writing flair to them. Today, George is living in Houston, Texas, with his dog Hilda-just a stone's throw away from his dozens of grandchildren and enough great-grandchildren to make the Kennedy clan envious.
