Ken, born in Bronx, New York and a retired CEO of a New York based Insurance Company, settled in Florida and has completed his new book “The River's Fortune”: a passionately constructed work of prose that weaves an intriguing plot while vividly engaging the imagination.

Drake Dawson, age 42, searches for an elusive meaning to his life. He leaves behind his addiction as an international gambler, failed relationships, and blunder as a Private Investigator. After several odd jobs, he lands a position as security officer on a Mississippi River riverboat cruise ready to introduce gambling. He confronts a desperate criminal, with ties to the mafia, who plans a robbery and an escape to a mystery woman. Dawson tracks the fugitive wherever the trail leads, to regain his self-esteem.
Meanwhile, Dawson meets Cindy Baxter, age 34, who has taken the cruise to forget her traumatic past and break out of her lonely life. Their paths cross in their quest for hope and happiness.
