Gregory Delaurentis spent his adult life roaming from job to job, working for Lockheed in California, various law firms in New York, and financial firms on Wall Street. Throughout this period of time, he was writing-unceasingly-finally producing a large body of work, albeit unrecognized and unpublished . . . until now. The Cover of Darkness is the first in a series of upcoming books that include The Edge of Darkness, The Pale of Darkness and The Cries of Darkness. These novels follow the lives of three individuals who do battle bringing criminals to justice, while they struggle to understand the complex relationships that exist among themselves. This intriguing trio has absorbed the attention of Mr. Delaurentis for the past year and a half, so much so he decided to self-publish their stories to bring them to a wider audience.
