ABOUT THE BOOK

Circumvent

Title: Circumvent

Author: S. K. Derban

Publisher: TouchPoint Press

Release Date: November 9, 2017

Genre: Clean Ready Mystery

When perfection turns to panic an isolated couple must learn:

“For we walk by faith, not by sight…”

Imagine living in a quaint, beach-front cottage on the Hawaiian island of Maui. You have an amazing job, combined with the pleasure of working from home. Lunch breaks become a daily picnic on the sand. Dessert is always included because of your marriage to a famous pastry chef. Life could not be any better. Or so it seems…

French-born, Nikki Sabine Moueix travels to Hawaii for a special work assignment, but the job of writing an article about a famous Swiss pastry chef generates more than a magazine piece. They fall in love, get married, and Nikki Moueix becomes Mrs. Ruggiero Delémont.

When another assignment calls for Nikki to spend three weeks in France, Ruggiero’s schedule prevents him from joining her. She travels alone, advancing straight into danger. After a threatening confrontation, Nikki wakes up in a French hospital with no knowledge of her past. After she fails to check in, Ruggiero panics and pushes for an immediate investigation. But as he closes in, Nikki’s new found friend moves her to another city. It becomes a game of hide and seek with Nikki as the prize.

CIRCUMVENT allows readers to form a bond with Nikki as they yearn for her to remember. They will cheer for Ruggiero and his relentless determination to locate his beloved wife. This is a story about two people who never lose their faith in God, and find amazing friends to help them along the way.

EXCERPT

Ruggiero checked the copy of Nikki’s itinerary, gripped the receiver, and dialed the telephone number for her airline. Then, after pressing a series of number commands, an automated voice instructed him to hold for the next available representative. While waiting, Ruggiero opened the refrigerator door and withdrew a bottle of spring water.

He sipped and paced for at least ten minutes before a live agent finally answered. Then, it took less than two minutes to be cut short. Under no circumstances was passenger information available to the general public. Ruggiero stood motionless as the drone of the dial tone sounded in his ear.
