Quiet Desperation, by Rodney Nelsestuen

Winston Williamson grapples with the realization that his personal life has become a fraud, while professionally, he’s always been an imposter as the head of his father’s law firm.

Trapped in a profession he felt coerced into, Winston’s cynicism deepens as his actions lead him down a path of moral and ethical decay. He battles his private demons: distant from his ailing father and unfaithful to his fading wife, struggling to cope with their deteriorating health. Simultaneously, jealousy fueled by his sense of inadequacy threatens his relationships within the firm.

As he approaches a point of no return, Winston must decide whether to cross it or not, both in his professional and personal life. But has that moment already passed? Is redemption, or something akin to it, still possible?
