Full of turmoil and massive confusion, Charlie attempts to deal with the death of the woman he adored and missing child. In a state of grief, he battles with his emotions while the FBI search endlessly for his kidnapped daughter. Reality mixes with improbabilities, and yet it is imperative for him to decipher right from wrong, especially when Billy Kite and James Pewsey come calling. Now it seems the truth is blurred with imagination, but he knows that neither truth nor honesty will save his child. An obsessive reality his daughter must be found is the only thing that matters.
Charlie comes from a humble middle class family. His mentor and friend while growing up is his grandpa, whom shares a lifetime of wisdom--engraved knowledge that Charlie later in life, puts into practice.
Charlie has an adventurous journey as a bachelor. He loves his single lifestyle, until one day, with just one look, his life changes forever--he falls madly in love with a beautiful young woman who shortly after becomes his wife. The tailspin affect she has on him doesn't stop with just adoring love but through her family name changes his career and financial state forever as he soon discovers she is both gorgeous and extremely wealthy.
Together, they journey through life, but not without the unexpected times that his two friends try to take over.
"Private Lives" delivers the full range of emotions. The reader will find themselves laughing one minute and crying the next--and be ready to fight soon after. The author, Simon Marshland displays a great command of pace and character development throughout the story. Marshland entwines the multiple characters
with fascinating plots and detailed settings into a symphony that the reader will cherish. The British twist on word usage only adds to the flavor of this riveting story.
I highly recommend this intriguing tale of Charlie Parker for those who enjoy a roller coaster ride of emotions on every page. "Private Lives" is a book to keep on your shelf as you will want to read it over and over again. "Pirate Lives" is one of those novels that will surely show you something new each time you read it...and you will want to read it more then once.
