Publisher Comments:

When a new job falls his way, Chance jumps at the opportunity, becoming a runner who picks up strange packages on a daily route and delivers them to a shady man at the marina. Chase knows how much he will earn—what he doesnt know is how much he will pay.

While growing up, Carl listened to the Beatles and Bob Dylan and, through their lyrics, learned to love words and decided he wanted to write. Carl also had a passion for sports. His writing career began as a film and book reviewer for the Seattle Sun, a small alternative newspaper. When the Sun went out of business, Carl decided to try his hand at writing a novel.
