Jason Lahey's quiet, content life in small-town suburban Wisconsin is about to get rocked to its core.

It begins when fate leads him to a mysterious ancient slot machine in an abandoned field that delivers a foreboding message. Soon after, he is traumatized by his discovery of a disturbing death.

What follows is a downward spiral of actions and events that break through the façade of Jason's perfect life. That one death will uncover the guilt and regret of an unresolved past, introduce crises that threaten to tear his family apart, and attract external dangers that will put both him and his family at risk.

Meanwhile, a larger global threat awaits as the mysterious slot machine with its predictions of death and suffering looms over his neighborhood on an unmarked road in an abandoned field...waiting.


...a unique and compelling story populated with fully realized characters...layered tension, a multitude of conflicts that are related to and impacted by one another...a smart, entertaining, and well-crafted story.
- Dr. Joe Dornich, writing instructor at Cal State University, fiction editor for the literary magazine, Zone 3 and author of, The Ways We Get By

...a contemporary fiction novel steeped in suspense and enigmatic undertones...Drawing inspiration from the surreal narratives of Ray Bradbury, particularly The Illustrated Man and Something Wicked This Way Comes, the novel weaves a tapestry of metaphysical and tangible threats. ... Fortune Falls is not merely about unraveling a mystery; it's an exploration of the human condition, the hidden turmoil beneath the facade of everyday life, and the elusive quest for peace amidst the chaos.
- Literary Titan
