The Red Road to Hades

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

Imagine your life is moving in a gully. 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 opportunities and perhaps a new romance.

This is the story of a retired gentleman who desires change on many levels. He meets a woman on Craig’s List who promises to be everything he desires. She is a beautiful redhead; a business owner who is smart, funny and vibrant.

He takes a chance, visiting her home in Kentucky. 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 other.

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 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 will come to see how one man uses every single ounce of his being to survive.

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