What do you do when a nightmare threatens your dream? In the disturbingly funny new novel Java Man, from the authors of Vampire Vic, Brian Lawson receives a dread diagnosis: cancer. But he won’t spare a moment from saving his struggling coffee shop, even if success comes with his dying breath.
Divorced and ostracized in the rural community, Andrea Goldine sets her sights on the charismatic java man. Brian’s doctors ravage him with chemo and radiation, yet the tumor on his shin grows. Brian drafts Andrea into his battle with a competing coffee shop, desperate to tap the college campus’s retail gold mine. But Andrea yearns for a different partnership…
Passions simmer below the surface of the tight-lipped community. Fresh from prison, North Dakota’s legendary basketball goddess dangles a ticket to Brian’s campus coffee dreams, and a disgraced scientist’s toxin treatment tantalizes. Two miracles for two maladies—with one cure more deadly than the next.
“Harris Gray once again delivers a stand out story.” – Amazon review
