Beyond Blue, my first fiction novel, narrates the story of Quinn and the vicissitudes that he goes through during his stay in Japan. Right after his arrival in Tokyo, Quinn gets sucked into a parallel world that is far from the postcard pictures. It is a world of murder, guilt, and lies. Without anything reliable left, one starts to wonder which parts of life exist and which are imagined. The only element that remains consistent is jazz. The world becomes untrustworthy, spontaneous, and unpredictable. But only until one goes beyond.
