Anthony “Tony” Costa grew up admiring his Uncle Dom—a made member of the New England mafia— so when Dom asks him to collect gambling debts from around the neighborhood, Tony is happy to help. Even after his uncle gets thrown in jail, he does his nephew a good turn from behind bars, getting him a job as a longshoreman on the Boston waterfront. The year is 1958, and Tony is only eighteen. His new job quickly teaches him what it will take to survive on the docks.

Tony and his violent new friend Butchie Shea soon carve out a life for themselves on the pier. But when Butchie convinces him to take desperate, brutal action against an adversary, Tony realizes just how badly his criminal lifestyle has tainted him. He vows to go straight and focus on his wife and family—but old habits die hard, and the opportunity of a lifetime yanks Tony back in. The job could lead to big rewards, but Tony might not see just how risky it is until it’s too late.

Marc Zappulla hails from the Boston suburb of Medford, Massachusetts. He received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Endicott College. He has worked as a ghostwriter for sports figures such as Hockey Hall of Fame goaltender Gerry Cheevers and strength and conditioning coach Brian McNamee.

Everyone has a secret. Some darker than others. 
James must keep a lifelong secret that has made his life a living hell. Kristina has witnessed something she fears will ruin her fresh start on Maui. 

When Seattle cop, James Dunn, saves a child from drowning in the Maui Hyatt pool and finds himself with a free vacation on a romantic tropical island, a series of coincidences has him booking a diving course with Lahaina scuba instructor, Kristina Greene. Although James has vowed to steer clear of love because his clairvoyance always ruins romantic prospects, he can't resist the feisty dive instructor. Days spent in the hot Maui sun soon thaw Kristina's icy exterior and the two fall into a delicious romance. 
But all isn't as it seems as Kristina not only fights to keep a dark secret from the cop but worries that her too-good-to-be-true lover might have an ulterior motive for his attentions. As emotions deepen, James finds himself in dreams with Kristina and seeing more than he wants of the woman he's falling in love with, discovers a heartbreaking truth. 

Could you walk away from true love if you weren't sure your choice would save her from tragedy?
