A native of Florida, Ray Dan Parker is a consultant, instructor, and free-lance writer. He is married and now lives in Atlanta where he spends his free time writing, reading, and playing tennis. He also enjoys teaching Sunday school and works as a youth leader at his church and has coordinated numerous community outreach activities. Over the years he has authored a variety of training materials and a number of self-study courses.
As a student at the University of Georgia, Mr. Parker studied literature and history and wrote for several campus publications. It was there that he first developed his love of writing. He has now embarked upon the realization of a life-long dream.
When Tom and Colleen Williams accept an invitation from a close friend for an evening concert at Atlanta’s Chastain Park, little do they suspect that they’ll soon become witnesses in an alleged date rape case. What seems at first to be a blossoming romance between the handsome and promising young artist Liam Sanstrom and his date, the beautiful and mysterious Dina Savage, quickly turns ugly. Spiraling accusations lead to a campaign of character assassination and, ultimately, murder.
This collision of power and wealth on the one hand and blind, vindictive ambition on the other leaves in its wake the ruined lives of dozens of people, including family and friends stretching from the suburbs of Atlanta to a small, dusty town in the Mississippi Delta. Drawn into this Greek tragedy by such powerful personalities, Tom fights to uncover the truth … all the while hearing echoes of his own past.
