The is the story of Jordan, a well educated homeless man who, by the result of a violent and unusual accident, meets an aging, exotic dancer named Hannah with whom he forms an extraordinary relationship.

Jordan has recently walked away from the practice of law and has slowly slipped away from his prior life. He now lives on the streets. He has learned to survive using a variety of schemes to make or steal money. He lives part of the time in a homeless shelter and other times with Hannah.

Jordan developed a love of opera during his time in law school. Despite his homelessness, he buys annual season tickets to the opera, much to the amusement of his friends.

Hannah reveals a great secret to Jordan and asks him for his promise to fulfill a wish. Together, Hannah and Jordan form a team to try to survive Los Angeles. This is their opera.

What they’re saying:

“The plot of this story was a pretty good one. I liked how the emotions rolled off the pages in massive amounts. I do wish the story was a bit longer, but I can tell the author didn’t want to ‘bog down’ the storyline with extra details, or fillers. After reading the book, the story of Jordan and Hannah really stuck with me, wondering where things would go from the end of the book. However, I think it ended quite nicely and to the point where I felt a sense of comfort after putting the book down. I hope to see more works from author Marc McVey, as I believe there is plenty of writing to do for him!”–Reviewed by
