“Following Claire” is my first novel and is the bittersweet tale of Jack Davenport. Jack is an Atlanta businessman, a straight up guy with a wonderful family and pillar of the community. He has promised Claire, his wife and a gifted pediatrician, that he will someday sell the plastics business that he has slaved over all his life and devote all of his time to a retirement for just the two of them.
The perfect opportunity comes along when Jack accepts an offer of $60 million to sell his business to Frank Lawson’s conglomerate. All is right with the world. Or is it? Moments after closing on the sale of his business, Jack sees his world turned upside down. His life is forever changed as he comes to know that he will now be facing life alone. And he’s off to quite a start.
A case of mistaken identity takes Jack to the nation’s capital where he is forced to go outside normal channels in order to save a family member. Through Frank Lawson, Jack meets a fellow named Harry Kincaid, one whose special skills are just what he needs.
