Scheinmann, Danny2016
Books, Manuscripts
On the precipice of homelessness and defeat, Joshua Jones has a chance encounter with a beguiling stranger, Angela, triggering a series of surreal events. Angela, an impulsive femme fatale, has also reached a low point. Seeking refuge from her troubles in the arms of a stranger, they share an intimate moment of tenderness in a cafe. But as she walks away, she steps quite deliberately into the path of an oncoming bus. As she lies in a coma, Josh - magnetically drawn to her and unable to shake the effects of their brief but powerful encounter - pretends that he is her boyfriend, inextricably binding their fates. But as his obsession grows, so does the danger of his situation. With his life continuing to unravel, he begins to question his own sanity until the shocking discovery of Angela's real identity finally reveals the chilling truth about himself.
