A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman.

This African-evolved religion, with its magic, is the backdrop for this tale of love, hate, deceit, betrayal, obsession, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. Magic, ritual, and destiny are the threads unraveling this gripping, edgy, mystery/thriller.
Pressured by a suspicious mother, a strange bed-fellow, and an amorous co-worker, Negra battles to keep a childhood secret from unraveling while a restless spirit and the African gods seek justice...

Wishing well the lovely T Valada-Viars, who played the cantankerous mother "Carlotta" in my play "The Grinder", and hoping she will be available to take on the role of the wealthy wife of a corporate big, "Mrs. Isenstat" of Sutton Place, who seeks the counsel of the Santeria priestess "Iya Carmen" concerning her husband's financial dealings. Be well lady!
