Constable Johnson is a police officer who has just pulled over a car thief. "Fully Loaded," as he is called on the street, is not just another pretty face. He is a law school graduate who gets a rush from stealing cars. Johnson hates to draw his gun. But when he does, what happens next will surprise everyone. As their granddaughter, Homa, looks on, Ahmadi and Bandar have an animated discussion under a window. Homa is fascinated by her grandfathers, especially when they talk about their home country, Iran. As the men continue, they have no idea another is listening, learning, and contemplating his own life from the window above.
"Under My Window" is a collection of stories that reflect sacrifices made for love as diverse characters attempt to find purpose and discover that perfection is impossible.
It starts with a phone call that reopens a painful chapter in Jake Tiptree's past. After years of delay, the man who murdered Jake's mother is finally scheduled to stand trial--until he vanishes into thin air. Maybe the only thing worse about Ozzie Campbell's disappearing is that Jake has a terrible foreboding of just where he'll turn up next. With her family away, Jake had hoped to savor a few days of unaccustomed solitude. Now, without warning, her cozy, well-loved home in Eastport, Maine, seems more like a death trap ready to snap shut. Suddenly Jake feels that her house--and her life--has far too many windows. And in any one of them she might see the face of her killer.
