The Wrong Side of Right - by Tom Gosinski

Tom Gosinski author of The Wrong Side of Right

Intoxicated by the promise of travel, the sparkle of politics, and a fascination for the mystery of wealth, Tom redirects his life into what, he feels, will be a satisfying, promising future. However, once on the inside, he realizes the sparkle was created by mirrors and the fascination and mystery were illusions carved in smoke.

"I drank my coffee in the screened patio—a very common protection in Nebraska built to keep out West-Nile-fever-carrying mosquitoes—and checked overnight e-mails. The state’s largest daily journal, The Omaha World Herald, no longer delivered papers to the western portion of the state, so I also intended to read articles from online news outlets. Doorbell chimes and the solid rapping of knuckles at the front entrance shattered my solitude. Because I wasn’t anticipating company, I hadn’t dressed to receive guests. With some embarrassment, I headed for the door in gym shorts and a T-shirt. Anyone who showed up without calling first got what they got. The form of a man appeared through the bevels of the door’s glass, but it was an unfamiliar figure. I opened the door, and before I could offer a greeting, the man introduced himself and presented a business card. "Howard. Are you Tom?" "I am." A quick glance at the man’s card showed an Arizona area code. Without thinking, I extended my hand, gave a polite shake, and invited him into my living room. "Would you like a cup of coffee?" "No, thank you." I drained my cup and set it on the end table. "You’re a hard man to find." He studied me, perhaps for a reaction. "Obviously not. You’re here." We sized each other up while red flags descended on my mind like ticker tape on a parade in Times Square. Smith made a host of obligatory comments. "Beautiful morning." "This seems like a nice town." "Did you grow up here?" I answered all with a formal "yes" or a less-than-committed "uh huh." With unexpected suddenness, his generalities changed to specifics. "Tom, do you know the McCains?" "Of course, I do. Who doesn’t? Who do you work for, Howard?" The ticker tape almost blinded me. "
