Chancey On Top

On the day his big time ambitions seem about to be realized, Chandler “Chancey” Haste glances into the rearview mirror of the limousine that bears him across Manhattan’s Triboro Bridge and catches the reflection of a scorching affair from his picaresque past overleaping oceans to engulf him...

The story begins with a backward glance to a bouncing check and a reckless antipodean infatuation. It sweeps through marbled World Trade Center offices where the sweet life seems utterly assured. It ends in the shadow of a murky English mansion where the hero discovers to price of ambition, the value of love, and the meaning of dreams.
