Ever want to disappear because
you just can't take it anymore? 

Tim Adams is overcome by the shallowness, hypocrisy, and injustice of American society. His despair is intensified by corporate corruption at work, urban decay in Philadelphia, and marital strife at home.


Feeling hopelessly boxed in, Tim runs away in the middle of the night with his three-year-old daughter in search of a more-ideal existence. He is pursued by a private detective and the FBI, but outsmarts them at every turn.


Tim's escape jolts people from boxed-in lives to new beginnings.


Whether you enjoy Boxes as a quick read, or slowly probe its layers of meaning, you will be memorably entertained and enriched.

"DeSanto's briskly told story has vivid elements of family drama and mystery, snappy dialogue, and a variety of interconnected plot points."
