A Gemma Open Door book
“‘Here’s a man who lives a life of danger. Everywhere he goes, he stays a stranger.’

Wingo Perseus has created the perfect high adventure secret agent man, and introduced our hero to his greatest nemesis: flight delays. Perseus’ ear for dialogue and ability to create loneliness in a crowded room is a storytelling wonder.”

-Brian Bouldrey, author of Honorable Bandit and The Sorrow of the Elves
A tale of coming and going and people who pass as ships in the night‎…‎or do they?
On any given day, in any given city, countless people are arriving and departing‎…‎to ‎visit grandma, to close a business deal, to hook up with a lover, to climb a mountain‎. Intrepid traveler Luis is trapped in flight delay and has many hours to see and hear ‎and sense his fellow passengers‎. ‎As he grows more invisible, the kinetic world ‎around him takes on a life of its own‎. ‎Where can all these people be going? Where in ‎the world do we belong?‎

The Gemma Open Door Series features storytelling by best-selling authors and important voices for new readers. A story doesn’t have to be big to change our world.

Wingo Perseus has traveled extensively in the footsteps of his father, a WWII flyer‎. ‎His favorite airport is City in London, most dreaded is Frankfurt, and he misses the ‎charm of the old Delta Marine Terminal at LaGuardia‎. ‎Not the best flyer himself, ‎Wingo now lives and works as a writer outside Boston‎. ‎Airport‎ is Wingo Perseus‎’ ‎second book.
