Shady Badesso arrived in Niantic, Connecticut from nowhere. With arms as thick and sturdy as PVC pipe, a back broader than a drive-in movie screen, and legs the size of a 75 year old oak tree, he looked like he was built from leftover parts at a hardware store. He was friendly, but had very few friends. If you Googled him, you would find absolutely NOTHING. It was as if he had been dropped into the small northern coastal town from thin air. But when two men escape from a nearby prison and kidnap one of the locals--a mysterious and confident young woman that Shady has feelings for, the prisoners find themselves utterly unprepared for the unexpected variable thrown in their path. A variable named Shady Badesso.At its core, Shady Badesso is a story of redemption, as a man attempts to come to terms with the worst thing he has ever done, a split second, impulsive decision with the best of intentions, gone horribly wrong. Will he ever forgive himself? And does he even need forgiveness? That is his inner battle as he spends his life in a never-ending effort to make amends.
