Character Guest Post with Harrison Stockton of The Desire Card by Lee Matthew Goldberg @leematthewg #characterguestpost




 Have we got a treat for you! Today's guest is Harrison Stockton. Haven't heard of him? Shame on you! He's in Lee Matthew Goldberg's new crime/suspense novel The Desire Card! Take it away, Harrison!



I'm Harrison Stockton. I've just learned that I have liver cirrhosis and that it's hard to move up on the donor list. So, outlook not so good. For the past twenty years, I've moved up the ladder and Sanford & Co. in Mergers & Acquisitions. I made a lot of money and had the ability to get whatever I wanted, but now I have been fired too. My wife Helene nor my children know about my condition. I'm am even hesitant to tell them about being laid off. They can clearly tell my health has declined but do not know the severity. I have been given a beacon of hope. The Desire Card. A company that promises any wish fulfilled for the right price, included in my severance package when I was let go. Would they have the ability to move me up on a donor list? Or if that is an impossibility, are there more unsavory methods that could get me the new liver I need? The Card says to call. The line is ringing. What should I say? What would you say if you were desperate?

Any wish fulfilled for the right price. That’s the promise the Desire Card gives to its elite clients. But if the Card doesn’t feel like they’ve been justly compensated, the “price” will be more menacing than the clients could ever imagine.

Harrison Stockton learns this lesson all too well. Harrison has lived an adult life of privilege and excess: a high-powered job on Wall Street along with a fondness for alcohol and pills, and a family he adores, yet has no time for. All of this comes crashing to a halt when he loses his executive job and discovers he has liver cirrhosis with mere months left to live.

After finding himself far down on the donor list, Harrison takes matters into his own hands. This decision sparks a gritty and gripping quest that takes him to the slums of Mumbai in search of a black market organ and forces him under the Desire Card’s thumb. When his moral descent threatens his wife and children, Harrison must decide whether to save himself at any cost, or do what’s right and put a stop to the Card.

THE DESIRE CARD is a taut international thriller that explores what a man will do to survive when money isn’t always enough to get everything he desires. It’s the first book in a series followed by PREY NO MORE that focuses on other people indebted to this sinister organization, where the actual price is the cost of one’s soul.

PRAISE:
“Careful what you wish for, especially from a nefarious shadow organization, in this gripping start to Lee Matthew Goldberg’s fast-paced, highly compelling, buzz worthy new series. If you love characters morally compromised, richly drawn, and constantly surprising, you’ll love THE DESIRE CARD. I burned through the first book and can’t wait to get my hands on PREY NO MORE to see where this endlessly exciting story takes me next! Loved it!” – Daniel Palmer, critically acclaimed suspense author

  1. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/
