Description: This is the first chapter of my new dark thriller, Nobody Has to Know, which tells the story of Cameron Baldridge, a popular high school teacher whose relationship with one of his students leads him down an unfortunate and self-destructive path.

The Kindle version is currently .99 but you can read the first chapter for free on Amazon. I am also running a giveaway on goodreads for 10 printed copies.

Thank you for your help.

Frank Nappi Love this review of Mickey Tussler posted on Amazon today!!:

"This was a well told story sure to tug at the heartstrings of all that read it and get lost in its tale. Lovers of the great American pastime of baseball surely will not be disappointed in the details of the beauty and intricacies of the game. Those not in the church of baseball, might in fact convert, but at the very least will be moved by this incredibly poignant story of very human characters, who have a little piece of each of us in them....."

Frank Nappi Thrilling story about the harrowing repercussions that occur when a young teacher sleeps with one of his high school students...packs a powerful warning about how dangerous it is to cross social and sexual boundaries...Nobody Has To Know is both a guilty pleasure and intellectually pleasing...sheds insight into the psychology, behavior and history of why people delve into dangerous sexual relationships.
