I have no clue about what’s happened to the others mentioned in my story. I only know that I’m very grateful to have escaped from this out-of-control neighborhood with my life and my sanity intact. I only know that I won’t be silent about what was done to me—and the children drowned in the Dania canals—until justice has finally been done.
Salisbury, MD (Vocus) October 20, 2010
Lies and dangers await readers as author Paul M. Titus uncovers the true story of his life in a neighborhood that’s gone out of control. Just Beneath the Surface, his book made available through Xlibris, invites readers to accompany him to Florida, where he stayed for ten years and where he witnessed and endured hellish events that would prompt him to abandon his house and the friends he had made during that time, and eventually to write about it.
The author’s Florida dream home had almost everything he wanted—a palm-laced landscape, a swimming pool, and a deck overlooking a sun-dappled canal. But just beneath the surface of this idyllic neighborhood laid secrets that some people would do anything to protect. And when Paul unwittingly uncovered these secrets, “the powers that be” took steps to ensure that he’d never be believed… or live to tell the tale.
Just Beneath the Surface is the true story of how one man helped crack a long-standing “wall of denial”—one extending from suburban Florida to the Pentagon. The harsh reality and truth that Titus experienced are too evident when he said, “I have no clue about what’s happened to the others mentioned in my story. I only know that I’m very grateful to have escaped from this out-of-control neighborhood with my life and my sanity intact. I only know that I won’t be silent about what was done to me—and the children drowned in the Dania canals—until justice has finally been done.”
This book will be featured at the 2010 New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY, on November 02-05, 2010. Readers who wish to learn more about this book can log on to Xlibris.com.
