Confluence
A Novel
by Bruce Nelson

Overview


Jackson, Mississippi is an illusion of substance built on dark history and a sea of unstable Yazoo clay.  A façade of civility harbors a minefield of secrets—some that yearn for discovery, others that must be held close to the heart.  Clay Wright struggles to hold together the desultory elements of his life:  a tenuous marriage, an accidental career, parenthood.  When his unscrupulous employer sells out the business and his job, his safe, predictable existence unravels.  A chance encounter with a prodigal friend finds Clay lured into some small-time drug dealing.  A seemingly harmless departure from the straight and narrow quickly spins out of control, leaving him reeling as he navigates a morass of betrayal and family secrets.  Confluence is an eccentric dance of mystery, romance, and quirky southern characters.
