Ravens In The Rain
A Noir Love Story
by Christie Santo and Jeff Santo

Overview


Ravens In The Rain is an unconventional noir love story between a woman with a past and a man with no future where love is no fairy tale, fantasy is foreplay, and sex is had on second dates. Carney and Pru, down on luck and down on love, meet over a game of chance, and the mystery of the other's intentions, compounded by their overwhelming attraction toward each other, compels them into a game of cat and mouse. They ante up and play this game of love or survival that has you wondering who's the villain and who's the hero and how it will all play out. When murder is brought to their doorstep the game gets serious. A psychological tale between a poet and a filmmaker that has even the cat wondering if it's really the mouse, what is real, and who is telling the truth. Is love on the table? Or is it life?

Description


Ravens In The Rain centers around Pru and Carney, she's a woman with a past, and he's a man with no future. Down on luck and down on love, they meet over a game of chance at an off-strip Vegas casino, and Carney wonders if Pru's sparkle is what he needs to lift him from his darkness. He doesn't even mind that she swiped a hundred-dollar bill from an old cowboy. It excites him. While Pru, disillusioned by her sparkle, is now accustomed to the cynical disposition of vagabond life. She's not looking for a one-night stand; she's looking for survival and sizing Carney up as a comfortable solution, for the moment. When she finds out who he really is, she'll ante up for the game of her life. This romantic noir is a turbulent flight; like dating in the 21st century, it's dangerous and daring.
