In a death match with the crippling forces of the Great Recession, Cree Quinn, the story's protagonist, finds his once wildly successful adult-novelty-items wholesale business quickly foundering and running aground. With all of his investments, rental property in California, natural gas wells in Texas, savings, retirement, credit cards, even his young son's college fund, all sinking into the abysmal sea of financial ruin, Cree is desperate to save his home for his family, which is about to be foreclosed upon if he doesn't come up with a colossal sum of money and fast.
Seemingly, the only answer to his predicament is the decomposing carcass of a killer whale, deceased of natural causes, which has unexpectedly washed up against the northern pylon of the Golden Gate Bridge, mysteriously stuck there and immobile, partially submerged but mainly exposed to the elements and the tourists along the bridge and the observation decks of Marin County. In the head of that listless leviathan and, in particular, in its skull, Cree sees salvation. Even if it means breaking the law. But will his scheme bring about this coveted salvation? Or ruin?
Readers will delight in K.C. Woodworth's humor and deft prose style as he navigates Cree on a fast-paced dash through the streets of San Francisco, and bring tears to their eyes as well as half-a-life-time of memories, youth, growth, friendship, love, loss, passion, all are recounted in epic fashion. This is a story that does not come along everyday.
K.C. Woodworth was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, reared for 14 years in the notorious Curwin Circle housing project amongst depredation, extreme violence and poverty. Despite this, at the age of five, a disappointing children's show caused him to take pencil and notebook in hand and he began writing short stories in an attempt to create his own stimulating entertainment. He has been writing ever since, studying the texts of other successful author's in an attempt to develop and refine his own literary talents, Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises" being the most influential work of all on him.
The author is immensely grateful for the support of his loving wife, Patricia, and their wonderful son, Matthew.
