Trevor Adams is a man being pursued by the past. Once a successful attorney, he abruptly walked away from it all to establish his own antique business – wheeling and dealing – in the past. Amidst his change in life direction, an odd affliction, previously dormant, has resurfaced, challenging his ability to focus on the here and now. Soon after he finds the perfect old building for his dreams to take root. Or did the building find him? Journals and memoirs uncovered in storage would suggest something has been waiting a long time for Trevor. Set adrift, he is now a man left foundering somewhere between the past and the present. His lover is losing faith in him. His hypnotherapist is mystified by him. Something long asleep has been awakened, and is demanding Trevor’s complete attention. Risking everything he believes in, he gives the matter due diligence, praying his sanity will prevail.
About the Author
Born in Philadelphia, Joseph DiFrancesco first began writing a few years into a long stint in the Philadelphia Fire Department. What started out as simple escapism eventually morphed into an unwavering obsession for storytelling. Having always possessed a wild imagination, coupled with a knack for telling tales, his insights into the human condition while an inner city paramedic seemed to complete the needed process within him to become a writer. To date he has written several screenplays, and his first film, The Mourning After, which he both wrote and directed, won for best featurette in the 2006 Delaware Valley Film Festival.
His interests are: good movies, great books, music which stirs the soul, art that gives you pause, architecture that strains the neck, oaky red wine, late night conversations regarding the unknown, and spending time with his wife and three children.
With five novels now under his belt it is likely he will continue to explore the distant and sometimes distorted reaches of his mind’s eye for more tales to tell.
Box 3014 Review
Box 3014 is a fantastic novel written by Joseph DiFrancesco. This is the first book I have read by this author and it won’t be the last. It had a wonderful feel to it, with layers on layers of development. Whilst reading this book you sense that something is going to happen and when it does it is big! Really good stuff.
