The main character, Damian Lucero, is a U.S. Marine Iraq war veteran, with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He is a gifted artist who becomes the target of identity theft by a former teammate, Dunk Landry. The plot involves the contemporary art world, the therapy of PTSD, political and legal intrigue, and Damian's relationship with his girl friend, Angela Fernandez.
"Openings" are art gallery receptions, sudden opportunities, and the opening of one's personality. The plot involves identity theft of a gifted artist's paintings.
The artist, Damian Lucero, is a U.S. Marine veteran of the Iraq war who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). His paintings are marketed via identity theft by a former high school basketball teammate, Dunk Landry, who achieves fame and fortune from his deception.
The plot bounces between Albuquerque and Dallas. It involves Damian's PTSD therapy, his attempts to expose Dunk's deception and bring him and his three co-conspirators -- a state senator, a gallery owner, and a political extremist --to justice, and the relationship between Damian and his girl friend, Angela Fernandez, a psychology student. The complex, fast-paced plot involves political and legal intrigue in the art world, as well as psychological insight into PTSD and its treatment.
