A retired Psychologist enjoying a contemplative moment on a beautiful spring morning is confronted with memories of past cases of the many clients he had treated throughout his years of practice. To occupy the obvious spare time he has on his hands now, he evaluates the worth of writing a book offering its readers an insight into the lives of everyday people who, in many instances are inflicted with life turns not necessarily induced deliberately. But never the less produce destructive spirals of despair that loom as a black dog, something they personally cannot control. Somehow he singles out a particular client who made an indelible impression on his life. From his notes he compiles a compelling tale of a man's life from adolescence, through puberty and adulthood. An intriguing and complex journey, professionally describing life as we all know it with joy, humour, happiness, despair, determination, tragedy and closure. He presents a story of human endeavour warts and all with no punch's pulled. A story so real, one in which you the reader may at times see similar flashes of your own life. He guarantees you a laugh and a tear and an ending with a considerable twist. If you like life adventures, read this one.
