As the infected grow more resilient and intelligent, Sebridge must abandon his stronghold when advanced mutants lay waste to the military base under his command. He secures the artifact in his flight from danger, dragging Carly and Ramirez along for the ride.

Outcast as a newcomer, Brady forges a brotherly bond with an older teenage neighbor, Mick, and his friend, Brett.

Third Wheel is a powerful novel about belonging, betrayal, and breaking away from paths laid out by others, even when it means grasping at an uncertain future. It is the story of a boy trying to find his identity without the benefit of a role model by taking chances on random and fragile relationships forged in the predawn hours of a future boomtown.
Desolate and gritty, Third Wheel is a triumphant debut novel, and Brady Wilks is remarkable as a transformative protagonist. Four-time award-winning author Richard R. Becker once again shares his unique insight into the human condition.
Colour. Synopsis of plot. Spoiler alert.
Ed works in a photographic shop in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, in 1970. For many months he’s been having a strong relationship with Gail on the phone, but he’s never met her or seen her. Not so much as a photo.
He’s reached the point that he believes himself in love with her and arranges to meet in person. She doesn’t seem too willing. No wonder! When he arrives at her home at last, he finds out she’s a Coloured. (A separate race in SA, not Black) He’s shattered, this is 1970, at the height of Apartheid. Such relationships were illegal.
After the initial shock, Ed finds he simply cannot ignore Gail, and that he has fallen in love with her to the point that he can’t live without her. He feels he could still take her out, an opinion Gail does not share, but she goes along with it. There are several dating attempts, but they all fail.
After the villain, Sgt. Van Greuning of the South African Police vice squad appears things get tense.
Sitting in Kansas Café, Judy Vernon witnesses a man have a heart attack. With his final breath, Frank Farrington gives her the look of someone wanting her to do something, but knowing he has no right to ask.
His presence lingers in the café, sitting across the table from Judy, and his pleading eyes appear in her mind when she is away from the café. Judy, a freelance journalist, is driven by Frank to investigate his life as she attempts to answer two questions:
Who was he?
What does he want from me?
As she learns about Frank, she becomes entwined in his life, being adopted by his family, accepting responsibility for his alcoholic former partner Billy, and befriending Frank’s morally dubious ex-wife, Miriam.
Her life is further complicated when bisexual loner Judy falls in love with both forensic accountant and businessman Myron Myerson and Frank’s brother’s wife, Alison Farrington.
Perhaps the most important question for Judy is whether doing what Frank wants her to do will enable her to return to her stable, carefully crafted routine life, or if her unlikely friendship with the deceased Frank has changed her life forever?
