No one is ever truly alone.
Jack Holden is a big fan of the silver screen, but if Hollywood ever make a movie about his life, it will be a horror film. He's lost his job as a radio presenter, his girlfriend has dumped him and eviction from his flat seems imminent. Devoid of hope, Jack scrapes together enough money for a nostalgia fueled trip to Barcelona, with the aim of ending his life there. But, when a stranger using a tantalizing alias contacts him, telling him not to go through with it, he becomes curious.
With Jack's final scenes imminent, he realizes that he's only a player, and that someone else is in the director's chair.
If you enjoy books by Paulo Coehlo, and like movies such as Tom Ford's 'A Single Man' and Emilio Estevez's 'The Way,' then I'm confident that you will enjoy reading 'Suicide Vacation.' Kind regards, Rich.
