The Red Road To Hades

“You know you can’t resist me – I’m the kind that your dreams tell you of.”

Not all roads lead to Paradise. This story is based on true events.

Imagine your life is moving in a gulley. You are not getting ahead but you are not falling behind either. You analyze the situation and decide to move to a more southern locality; a new place that offers more opportunity and more excitement. Perhaps even a new romance.

This is the story of a retired gentleman from New York who yearns to improve his life on many levels. He meets a woman on Craig’s List who offers all the things he desires. She is a beautiful redhead; a business owner who is smart, funny and resides in a part of the world he has considered for his new habitat. They engage in lively chat, by both email and telephone. She finally invites him to visit her in Kentucky, where she lives and works.

Deciding to take a chance, he agrees to take a trip to meet her face-to-face. Their meeting is absolute magic. They have so many common likes; he is feeling he has met his soul-mate. Their days are filled with love and laughter, as they thoroughly enjoy each others company.

But the real fireworks happen in the bedroom.

Even though neither of them are ‘spring chickens’, their sexual responses to each other can rival couples half their age. They decide to move-in together and start a new chapter in their lives. Only one problem exists.

The lady is a Black Widow in disguise.

The story now becomes a painful voyage into perdition. Suffering at the hands of a sadistic lover is only the beginning. Physical and emotional abuse from a corrupt judicial system could possibly lead to his death.  With few resources, he pushes on against the powers-that-be. In the face of overwhelming odds, the central character fights to save his life, his honor, and his sanity. Through the journey, the reader discovers how one man used every single ounce of his being to survive.

The Red Road to Hades offers a look at domestic abuse from the male point of view and is a ‘must read’ for anyone considering an Internet-Based relationship. This book is a 2016 Winner in The-Authors-Show competition.
