Night Work +Rush Williams

A fast paced narrative about a straight-laced company man, a widower and single parent, and his beloved only daughter. He hits some bad luck and learns some tough life lessons just as his daughter prepares to enter college.

Night Work is a story of interior struggle and change.
In January, Curt Mellam, executive, widower and for five years a single parent, prices an imported sports car for a high school graduation present for Karen, his beloved only daughter, expecting her to drive it to Georgetown University in the coming fall. He bever completes the purchase. Instead by summmer, he is dodging bulllets as a moonlighting cab driver and wondering how he will ever pay tuition for Karen.
Formerly a straight-laced company man, Curt adapts and makes his way up in the pecking order of his new job. A street fight and jail time, both unthinkable before, earn him top dog status. His new life forces a rethinking of his priorities and principles. Curt becomes a different man and vows never to return to the life of an organization man.
The story is told first person with a self effacing humor despite the sometimes violence in it.

I found it oddly disturbing but incredibly compelling--rather like life itself...
The author is to be commended for a tale worthing telling and for shari
