This story started with the character PJ McAvoy and the very first line of the book. I wanted to explore the humanistic side of what makes a person evil. I wanted to craft a character, that though evil, would also elicit empathy and compassion. I've found through my own life experiences that we are a sum of nature, nurture, and dumb luck. To give meaning and balance to a character's actions, I felt that the only way to do it was through a mirror image of the character. Only in the case of this mirror, we don't know which is the reflection. Though I can appreciate a fun, beach read, I don't enjoy writing them. This story, hopefully, is a bit of both, thrill ride and brain teaser. I hope you enjoy it.
