DR. RICHARD L. BEND, JR. - AUTHOR

SYNOPSIS: A world weary man finds his career and personal life in shambles.  To make matters worse, his wife has engaged in a rather heated affair with an attorney.  This he discovers when his wife accidentally calls home and gives him a ringside seat to hear just ‘how’ heated things are.  Broke, disenchanted and numb, Rick flees on a vacation he cannot afford, to sort out his life.  Vacationing in a run-down resort on a shark-infested Caribbean island, he goes exploring against the advice of a local preacher who isn’t really a preacher at all. This so-called preacher is actually a former British deep cover agent with a secret…a secret Rick discovers while exploring, quite by accident; a secret that will change his life forever;  a secret that spans a century, beginning in a darkened palace chamber of the Kaiser, continuing to a dank bunker in war torn Berlin, and ending in a musty church where the Odessa Legacy is reawakened.
