Fateful Eyes is a story about a life spent searching for love, accomplishments, and true fulfillment, within the world upheavals that, unfortunately, characterize the beginning of the new millennium. In my own life, I have traveled in many continents, I have been acquainted with many different people from different cultures, and I have also humbly attempted to comprehend the dizzying pace of events that are unfolding in such a frenetic tempo around us.
I aspire to share those experiences by narrating the story of Peter, a cosmopolitan who is traveling around the world at several exotic places, trying to solve a great puzzle, trying to locate a mysterious lady who came from his distant, youthful, and lustful past, and upset his life and his relationship with his affectionate lover. All the while, she is trying to fend-off by the threat posed by that mysterious rival in his heart.
Yet, the puzzle itself is not the essence of this novel. The puzzle is only a ‘pretext’ to justify the exposure of Peter’s tortuous and twisted path in life, as well as to narrate the lives of everyone around him, as they all become unwittingly entangled into the rolling thunder of the world’s current upheavals, terrorism, wars, and economic crises. Like a modern Odyssey, the real essence of this novel is Peter’s long and tormenting journey towards his destination, towards the completion of his mission. Notwithstanding the mystery, the problems, and the upheavals, this story also celebrates love, affection, optimism, and the enthralling beauty of marvelous life.
After spending five years in writing and preparing the publication of this book, I felt gratified to receive warm feedback from many readers, such as the following sample:
“I have finally read the book, and I was spellbound. I just could not put it down, and when I finished it, I was sorry that it was not longer.
I have to congratulate you on such a well written piece. The suspense was palpable throughout the book, the descriptions of London (where I partly grew up), and Manila (which I visited several times on business) were so accurate and I could identify myself with a lot of the feelings that you painted. I just cannot wait to read the sequel.
Once more, my heartfelt congratulations on an excellent work.”
SOLVE THE PUZZLE…
Read the book, and try to guess what happens next. If you were in Peter’s shoes, how would you envisage that this story develops? Would you consider that there exists indeed a long-lost daughter? If yes, then what kind of person would you imagine that she would be? Would she fit into Peter’s life? Would she get on well with his wife? If there is no daughter, then what is all this upheaval about?
