Two Years in the Kingdom- Beach Otres

March 16, 2018

Hello All, and thanks for following me. Otres Beach, Cambodia. It is vacation time and I had heard of this small seaside village of Otres. Quiet and slow paced sounded like the place for me. It wasn’t easy to get to but maybe that is why it is quiet and peaceful. The picture of the town looking down the main street, actually the only street, is lined mostly with buildings of wood/bamboo with thatched roofs. The street looks longer in the picture than it is in reality. It might be the length of 2 city blocks. Not much to do here but lie on a cushioned lounge and stare at the ocean, have a massage on the beach in a grass hut, or sip a margarita at the bar. There are boats that can take you out the islands for snorkeling but maybe another time for me. I’m comfortable right where I am. End the day with and amazing grilled seafood dinner on the beach- yes the tables and chairs are brought out onto the beach- while watching the sunset over the ocean.  The price is right also. The dinner costs about $5 and $7 for an hour massage. I’m going to include another shameless plug for one of my novels. I enjoy writing all my books but this is the one I’m most proud. Filled with twists and turns that will keep you guessing. This is a short description and all ordering info is on this website. http://www.jimrizzo.com

It’s 1930 and Carson Jones is a prison guard at the notorious Eastern States Penitentiary in Philadelphia where some of America’s most violent inmates and gangsters are serving time. Amidst the desperation of the Depression and a crowd of hostile convicts, Carson finds solace in an azalea garden behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art and in helping an inmate he believes has been wrongfully accused of murder and sentenced to death. Carson’s life begins to take a turn when he meets a beautiful young woman through a coworker. Her father is a judge and agrees to help him, but at a price. Carson is forced to choose between a life of meaning and purpose and leaving his friend at the mercy of a threatening warden who is becoming increasingly more unhinged. Though the life he has always dreamed of is finally within reach, is it worth it? In a novel chock-full of history and suspense, James Rizzo crafts a suspenseful narrative full of real-life history and page-turning intrigue.
