"I have thought about this, long and hard. I have spent too many years living in the past tense. It's time to get on with my own life." -- Peejay NovakPeejay Novak is young, naïve, and very wealthy. But most of all, she is alone and scared. Haunting nightmares and the mysterious disappearance of her father ten years before, take her on a journey to excavate her past. She wanders from the affluent neighborhoods of Georgetown and Potomac to the peaceful mountains near Camp David, Maryland. She climbs into the jaws of a publishing empire and slides into the depths of Washington's bawdy night world. And as Peejay searches for the missing pieces of her puzzling life, she makes a few enemies, redefines old friendships, explores her sexuality, and eventually discovers herself. With the help of two associates -- longhaired detective, P. D. Slichtor and glamorous author, Elizabeth Briteful -- Peejay unravels her tapestry of dreams. But will she be ready for the truth?
