Always A Kicker, by Jeff Zwagerman
A horrific accident happens when Zander is fifteen years old. It shapes the next twenty years of his life. His wanderlust and passion for uncommitted relationships seems to be a direct result of his girlfriend’s death. But something was nagging at his core and it was telling him that past events were not what they appeared. Zander’s seemingly pointless life leads him from a small town in Iowa to Omaha, Nebraska and finally to Frisco, Colorado. The people he meets may finally give him some meaning to an unfulfilled life. Then the unthinkable, a private investigator tells him Sara Jane may be alive. But he always knew that. Always A Kicker is a story of dealing with events of the past and learning to make your own luck by taking life head on even when dealt a rotten hand.
