A Fool Believes by Cristian Cuevas
A true story.
The life and anguish of a high-functioning addict and his inevitable collapse.
All names have been changed to protect the identity of those involved. A Fool Believes paints a stark and vivid picture of the life and anguish of a high-functioning addict and his inevitable collapse. On the surface, John is living the dream as a successful family man and the top car-salesman in Texas. But just beneath the surface is a rock-star lifestyle—sports cars, money, gambling, and drugs. Lots of drugs.
As John’s sales tactics slide from unethical to criminal, and the thugs he’s in debt to and military clients he’s screwed over come knocking, the highs naturally take John to new lows. Through all the turmoil, manipulation, and lies, an eclectic cast of characters surrounds John. They are his friends, colleagues; his cohorts, loved ones, and victims. They both dissuade and enable him as his toxicity threatens to take everyone down with him.
A Fool Believes will take you on speeding car ride, on a journey so raw, so fresh, it will stay in your system long after. Whether you’ve had a toe or neck in these waters, or a view from the rocky shore, this tale will resonate. For, this is a story of losing it all to gain back the self you never knew you lost.Amazon
