June 20: 60-Second Read From “Miracle Man”

The following is an excerpt from Miracle Man. Protagonist Robert James Austin internalizes a perceived betrayal by the one woman he has opened up to:

He wanted to scream-out down the ugly street, “It’s her fucking fault that I’m in the rain in this crap neighborhood trying to evade the police.”
