Francis Marks has had enough of his dull life and is tired of being just another employee number in a big corporation. He needs to shake things up a bit, and applies for a job teaching English at a government funded school in Manaus, Brazil.

In Manaus, he befriends Eduardo, a local tour boat operator. Eduardo tells him that he needs investors for an audacious plan to head out into the jungle and look for Inca gold.

With details agreed, they head deep into the jungle, taking a number of local labourers. The work will be long and hard, and will involve endless digging, day after day in the sweltering heat.

The jungle is the kind of place that seems to bring out the worst in men. It brings out their violent, brutish natures. Tempers fray, and relationships turn ugly. Danger lurks everywhere, from the creatures circling the camp to the hostile human visitors intent on seeing them leave. When men begin dying, and escape is ruled out, the mere act of survival becomes more valued than any amount of hidden gold.

Disgraced British soldier and disenchanted mercenary, Petros Kyriades, is one half of an elite pair of soldiers-for-hire known as ‘The Collectors’. William (‘Bear’) Morris, ex-SAS sergeant, is the other half. Their motto is, “If it’s there we will find it, and for the right price recover it.’

Accountant Bernie Cohen cannot recall the first ten years of his life. But with the assistance of a psychiatrist, he exposes an undesirable truth. An abandoned house close to Chernobyl holds the mystery of his past, and Bernie hires The Collectors to retrieve something that should have remained hidden.

The Collectors always play the game by their rules – that is until someone or something forces them to rewrite them.

Elevating Overman is a funny and painful story of redemption that explores the complex ramifications of what it means to get a second chance.

The novel follows the journey of Ira Overman, veteran of multiple botched careers and a singularly botched marriage, as he makes one last attempt to rise above the guilt, weakness, and self-hatred that have been hard-wired into his soul since birth. Through an unlikely side effect from a seemingly routine surgery, Overman suddenly finds himself trying to reconcile newfound powers with the man he used to be, determined not to repeat the poor choices of his past.

Overman succeeds at righting some of his former wrongs, fails miserably at others, but, most importantly, gains a small yet significant window into a life that matters.
