Paul Rekers, a retired insurance broker and marathon runner with a newfound passion for writing, has completed his new book “Walk Away”: a gripping novel full of twists and turns that serves as a warning against running from guilt instead of facing it head-on.

“Memories of traumatic events can be very powerful and dangerous,” writes author Paul Rekers. “Like a permanent scar, they don’t ever go away. The best thing you can do is to try and file them away somewhere in the depths of your memory bank and hope they don’t pop up very often. When they do surface, you must wrestle with them and somehow try to get them back in the archives. You can’t just push Delete.”

Published by Page Publishing, Paul Rekers’s compelling tale tells the story of Richard Hancock, a banker and beloved husband who seems to have it all. However, Richard’s past is coming to haunt him. At age five, he was blamed by his mother Judith for the death of his younger brother. Now an adult, Richard is hounded by guilt and struggles to keep up his put-together image. When a family vacation to Puerto Rico presents itself, Richard knows that this is his chance to get away from it all. What can he do?

While lying on a beach in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the idea for “Walk Away” suddenly struck Rekers. “It just came to me,” he says. “It wouldn’t go away.” Inspired to write his first novel, Paul Rekers presents readers with a consuming and cautionary tale about avoiding one’s dark past.

Readers who wish to experience this thrilling work can purchase “Walk Away” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
