Of all God's creations, we humans are the most unique. In the most kind, there is cruelty and in the most cruel, kindness; in the most brave, fear and in the coward, bravery. The most intelligent has ignorance and the most ignorant, intelligence. The comparisons are endless and they are real. The question is, are we truly gifted, or are we damned? In my story, 'Retribution of a Harlequin' I have tried to show, there is some good in the most evil, and evil in the most good through my two characters, Ian and Bert. Follow their adventures as they pit their intelligence and luck against each other. Does good triumph, or does evil? Or could it possibly be a draw? You the reader decide. Enjoy the story.
