Description

A hippy chick named Cassandra Stevens craves adventure one wet, Wednesday night in October. She lands at The Childe Harold, a bar on Dupont Circle, where she meets Harry Shields. She strikes up a conversation with him and learns that he is a shell shocked Korean War vet who works as a P.I. Their physical attraction is so intense that after four dates they're engaged. She immerses herself into his troubled life, and helps him fight the war that still rages within. It continues to lure him back to combat and a state called 'the thousand yard stare' or shell shock. Together they battle his internal terrors working towards a cure. But an unseen force starts attacking them from the outside. These events are random and seemingly unprovoked, but clearly have the intent to kill. Not all terrors are irrational, and it takes the skill of a GI P.I. to uncover and neutralize the source of this deadly threat. Meriwether Shipley has created a story of mystery and romance centered around iconic Dupont Circle in Washington, DC, during the turbulent 1960's. This was a time when Nixon was a dirty word and a half million people joined forces to march on the city to protest the war in Vietnam. This book is the first in a series of seven. Peace!show more
