Empty Shell: Ashley Fontainne

How do you define yourself as a person? Do you rise every morning feeling invigorated and ready for whatever the day brings? Do you wake up depressed and want to remain in bed? Some people develop their own private cocoon and hide within the confines of this small empty space and live their lives with what if’s, what should have’s and feeling empty.

Take the outer shell of an egg that is not hard-boiled and hold it gently in your hands so the shell does not crack. Imagine how fragile and delicate this object is and what would happen if it should fall to the floor. Sometimes we feel so overwhelmed, so distraught and destitute that we as a person with a stronger outer covering become as fragile as the white egg shell and have to be careful not to crack.

When rare photos, a scandalous diary, and a beautiful woman all go missing at once, the stage is set for three challenging cases for Henry Swann. It begins with an offer to partner up with his slovenly, unreliable frenemy, Goldblatt. The disbarred lawyer-turned-“facilitator” would provide the leads and muscle, while Swann would do all the fancy footwork. A lost diary by a free-loving Jazz Age flapper is worth enough to someone that Swann takes a beat down on an abandoned boardwalk. Pilfered photos of Marilyn Monroe propel him deep into the past of an alcoholic shutterbug, his wife; and he’s hired to search for a lonely writer’s runaway girlfriend. The cases converge and collide in a finale that lifts the curtain on crucial, deadly facts of life for everyone including Swann himself.
