Power and Possessions opens with an armed bank robbery by a crystal meth addict named Marlowe seeking to feed his addiction. How long will his robbery spree last?

At the centre of the novel is a romantic triangle between the three main characters: Julie, Frank and Bjorn. When the high stakes world of video games clashes with the world of high art in the city of Toronto, secrets, lies and passions explode onto the scene. Stolen paintings, a skull, and an important archaeological find all come into play.

In the stormy world of power and possessions the high stakes of the “computer gaming world” intersect with the “fine art world”, with murderous results. Frank Cullen has a passion for business and a passion for his wife.  Frank’s wife, Julie Cullen, a PhD archaeologist, meets an intriguing artist. Julie finds herself caught in a dilemma; to return to her husband, or to form an exciting yet dangerous relationship with this new man in her life. Someone gets killed – find out who.
