"While living in my state, anyone would be aware of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome, or pervasive developmental disorder (PDD). New Jersey rates of Autism are exceedingly high, but this state has managed to create amazing strides within the Autistic community including schools, residential assistance, and employment. Thus, it was an easy task to connect the necessity of a job coach position into my fictional story that involves a member of the community with Asperger’s Syndrome.
In Revenge, while not the main character, Bobby Havers does have an integral starring role and there are several chapters where his symptoms are brought to the forefront in an interesting and positive way.
Bobby Havers was working and doing exceedingly well in a long-term placement until management changed and some claims of Bobby’s mistakes multiply. Olivia Foster has tried to speak with the new manager on several occasions but had been rebuffed due to the manager’s meeting schedule. However, when merchandise goes missing, it was assumed Bobby mistakenly added the materials received that had not been, but Olivia was able to match up receipts and invoices disproving that claim.

However, once Bobby disappears, the job coach’s employer ends her position and adds her to the suspect list, but when Bobby remains in contact with the job coach, Detective Lt. Phillip Landon is left with a more complex case than he had at the beginning of this disappearance. Whoever has abducted Bobby Havers knows Olivia Foster, and despite her protestations, this theory becomes solidified by the death of her special needs brother in a workplace environment from years ago. Phillip’s only problem is to find out how the two cases connect and doing it before something happens to Bobby Havers while the job coach becomes the next target, but she makes plans to bring the missing young man home.
Can he keep Olivia safe, protect his heart, remove the job coach from someone’s target list, and adopt a faith he never knew all while adjusting to the new lives of his old family?"
