In the near future, advances in medicine and quantum computing make human cloning a reality. For the wealthy, cheating death is the ultimate luxury.

Lying low on the sun-kissed coast of Portugal is a far cry from twenty-four-hour lockdown in a CIA black-site prison. But even in paradise, Gibson Vaughn is a long way from being home free. With the feds hot on his heels, he and his crew of fellow fugitives know they can't hide in a sunny beach town forever. And before they go on the run again, their generous host--a wealthy drug smuggler--expects to be paid for his hospitality. And paid double. His price? A nearly impossible operation that Gibson and his gang must pull off to retrieve a king's ransom in hijacked narcotics. Even if they make it out alive, they'll have to face the wrath of a ruthless Mexican cartel that plays dirty...and is used to winning. But when Gibson discovers there's far more than drugs at stake, the heist becomes a daring mission of rescue and mercy--and righteous vengeance.

This is what time has been waiting for, another historical fictional writer who takes you back in time to an era that defined the rich history of America's past. If you love the writing styles of Zora Neale Hurston or Earnest J. Gaines, then you will love this book of short stories. These stories are about Black/African American people, who were labeled with many names; one such as colored people. This meant they had all shades, light, brown, caramel, and dark skin; you pick. The thing that holds these stories together is they are about people who not only have African blood, but European blood also. It was funny how they had European blood, and some even looked like them, but was never credited with having it. The One Drop Rule was a law that stated that if a person had one drop of mixed; per say Black/African American, blood in them, they were considered black or Negro. The stories are not based on true characters but based on some factual things that the Negro/ mixed race went through in America at that time.
