C.L. Mustafic is a born and bred American mid-westerner who mysteriously ended up living in one of those countries nobody can ever find on the map in Europe. Left with too much time on her hands – let’s be honest here it was the lack of television channels in her native language – and too many voices in her head trying to fill the silence, she decided to give her life-long dream of writing a novel a shot. After finishing the first one she figured she may as well do it again because as she flipped through the channels in the vain hope there would be something interesting on she came to the realization that there are only so many 90’s sitcom reruns one can stomach before they are compelled to throw themselves in front of a bus. So now between shuttling kids back and forth from various activities, risking her life on the insanely narrow, busy streets of her new home town, she loses herself in her own made-up world where sometimes things get a little freaky.

Kamal has made his way as a mercenary in the the Bosnian underworld since the war that left him broken and betrayed by his lover. A job to kidnap the adult son of the only man Kamal ever loved leads Kamal to do something irrational. In an isolated cabin in the mountains of Bosnia his hostage, Zijad, becomes more than just an object standing in for his father--but a job is a job, and Kamal is a professional. As tensions mount, Kamal puts the pieces together, and doesn't like what he finds. (M/M)
