AMAZON BESTSELLING AUTHOR STEVEN JAY GRIFFEL'S EVERYMAN NOVEL
THE DEADLINE is the story of David Grossman, a Baby Boomer approaching sixty who loses his high-paying corporate job, forcing him to review his options and priorities. Desperate for a last chance at personal fulfillment, David makes a one-year deal with his wife. If he fails, his life-long dream is likely over and he must return to the corporate grind, "a life lived under the steady lash."
At first, one year seems like ample time, but David had not counted on having to deal with a moody culinary genius from the Amazon, a high priestess of the dark arts, a dying mother, and sinister thugs from the Mob. With each passing day, Grossman feels the pressure of time slipping away and the likely end to his dream.
THE DEADLINE is a truly engaging story, as only Steven Jay Griffel could write, about people fighting to achieve their dreams, no matter what the odds. In the center of it all is David Grossman, a man who struggles to push ahead, an everyman who still believes that decency, humor, and compassion are enough to survive in a world gone awry.
Author of five novels, Steven Jay Griffel lives in Queens, New York, with his wife Barbara.
