Joseph Storch has an enviable life. He owns a successful financia l services firm, has scads of money, a mansion in the hills, and a beautiful wife. But as the fraud his success is built upon comes crashing down, his life, as he knows it, is over. In a fit of despair, he puts his Glock to his head and prepares to pull the trigger.

Description


GUARDIAN ANGEL is a fast-paced crime fantasy novella. JOSEPH STORCH has an enviable life. He owns S&S Financial, a successful financial services firm, has scads of money, a mansion in the hills of Los Angeles, and a beautiful wife. But the fraud his success is built upon is crashing, and his life as he knows it is over. In a fit of despair, Storch picks up his Glock and puts it to his head. That's when his guardian angel, ORIEL, appears and tells Storch not to bother--he will be dead in a week anyway. But in that time, he can change the destiny of his immortal soul by doing something for someone, something he would not do. After some discussion about the life Storch has led and the number of people he has harmed along the way, a disbelieving Storch demands Oriel leave. The angel agrees but informs Storch that tomorrow his office will be raided by the FBI. His partner, GORDON STEELE, will be arrested for arms dealing and money laundering. Oh, and his wife, MARIA, is having an affair with the pool boy. The angel disappears. Nothing the angel has told him will happen Storch decides. He's had too much to drink and tosses a bottle of vodka, two-thirds gone, into the trash.

The next morning, S&S Financial is raided by the FBI, his partner is arrested, and his chief financial officer, PHIL MONROE, vows to make sure Storch ends up in federal prison. As the FBI convoy pulls away, Storch concedes the so-called angel was right. But it doesn't mean he'll be dead in a week, or even that the angel is real. After mulling the situation over, he opts to stay in L.A. for a day or two to see how things go. And so, Storch begins a journey. Will he change and save his soul? Will he run as he has always done? Is the angel even real? Storch must face the reality of the life he has led, see the people in it for who they are, and balance the ledgers of his life. Only then, can he make a choice.
