New Release: "Borrowed Time - Volume 2 - End Of The..." by David L. Hoof
Nearly one hundred years after he died in the Mexican desert, Raul Sanchez has been miraculously resurrected to deliver incredible offers to skeptical twenty-first century occupants of Washington, DC
These are not offers they can’t refuse; they are merely an opportunities for continued life, differently fashioned for each person. But if these people refuse, they quickly die.
In this episode of the ongoing series, terminal cancer patient Molly McCarthy, 24, seizes the chance and is instantly restored to full health and an eight year lease on life. Even after Sanchez delivers her home, she can’t get him off her mind or out of her hopes.
But Sanchez is only a messenger, his next delivery due to the Right Honorable Delbert Hamhocker, a Republican Congressman from South Carolina.While getting head from an intern beneath his desk, Hamhocker threatens Sanchez with arrest and imprisonment. The outcome and denouement provide links in the ongoing lessons that the nation’s capital can be a very deadly place to threaten the gentle Sanchez.
