Mason Hart has just lost his job, fiancé, and car in less than 48-hours. A short time later he accosts a cop and ends up in jail. He finally lands in a hospital as the result of a jailhouse brawl. He’s helpless to quell this downhill slide into calamity. Since he believes all is lost at this point, suicide seems the only alternative left…
Until the figure of Felicity Fortune, the Roman Goddess of Luck, interrupts Mason’s suicidal plans in the nick of time. It seems Felicity Fortune was hampered by the bird flu and few other appointments, so she must apologize for her tardy appearance. She tells Mason that he’s ripe for a cosmic alignment, and that his 15-minutes of fame and wealth are finally at hand. He is allotted six chances via the roll of the golden dice for his deserved share of the “Great Cornucopia.”
Beshaba, the Maid of Misfortune, has ear-marked Mason at the exact same time to heap upon him the bad luck part of the equation. She is the evil incarnate daughter of Felicity, and now covets Mason for her own devious alignment. Everything that Beshaba represents is in stark contrast to her mother. It is a deliberate ploy to spite the good works of her mother, thus laying down a challenge of cosmic power.
Their simultaneous claim to Mason forces the two Goddesses into a mythological cat fight in hell. When this push and shove reaches a fevered pitch, even the destiny of mankind in called into question. Mason must find the solution and tear away the veil of darkness that could upset the divine balance between good and evil. What he doesn’t know is that the final key to the solution is himself.
Why is This Book Special?
I believe this book incorporates all of the special fantastical elements and hilarity of movies and books like Bedazzled, Weird Science, Manikin, Splash and Date with an Angel. Who knew that the phrase “luck be a lady” was based in reality? You bet! The Roman Goddess Fortuna (Felicity Fortune) is alive and well and spreading wealth—the great cornucopia; your 15 minutes of fame. Only her daughter, Beshaba, means to rip-off every fortune her mother doles out. A mythological catfight in hell ensues, leaving Mason Hart torn between wealth and poverty, and two Goddesses vying for his destiny. 99-cent Special.
