Diane's Deli: A Tale from Paradise Heights
Author(s): Joe O'Byrne
Sean Ginty is a café owner in Paradise Heights. A quiet and unassuming man who wears a watch that stopped over twenty five years ago. He’s a father figure to both his staff; literary student Jake, and Gabrielle, an artist and scarred survivor of a horrific fire that left her orphaned some years ago. It’s a quiet but somewhat idyllic existence.
DS Mackey, from the local police, is a burnt-out and bitter man, with an eye for opportunity and the other eye on Sean; he is more than curious about his past.
When a woman turns up late in the café one night, a chain of events is set in motion that will have devastating effects on all their lives.
