Author Joseph Dunn has completed his new book “The Time Being”: a potent story of confusion, loss, and redemption spanning decades from Civil War-era Maryland to more recent and racially charged Baltimore.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Joseph Dunn’s evocative tale presents Colt McCormick, an unwitting witness to the devastatingly unsolved disappearance of three boys from his hometown.

“’Do you know something that you are not telling me?’ the detective asked the teenage-at-the-time Colt McCormick with repeated insinuations.
He questioned him further with contempt, rewording the question as if young Colt had a comprehension problem. The boy understood. The man was right. He did know something, but he couldn’t bring himself to admitting anything. The detective watched closely as the boy continued to act oddly. ‘Is the reason that you cannot remember anything because you buried it in the background of your subconscious?’
The young boy did remember being nauseous. He knew then what he couldn’t say.”
