The Penthouse

by F. Collyer Reed


Release Date: February 19 , 2015


While having dinner one night in an upscale restaurant, three men

well beyond middle age are entranced by a strikingly beautiful young woman who walks by

on the arm of a man old enough to be her father. Her scent lingers, intoxicating the trio who

stop eating and question how a man of their own age manages to enjoy the pleasures of such an

enticing young thing. They wonder who he is, and who she is. As their plates of food

grow cold, they decide that she’s too classy and wholesome to be anything other than a gold

digger. And they decide they want one of their own.


them they can create the façade of one incredibly wealthy man. With access to a penthouse with

art worth millions and a Rolls Royce, they decide to take turns being Man of the Evening. One

will be a butler/cook. Another the chauffeur. The third a lonely, illusive, incredibly wealthy

gentleman. They place a personal ad seeking a woman who dreams of the man they have created

– and who doesn’t mind if he’s twice her age. A woman who will shop in trendy boutiques and

department stores, and let the chauffeur carry her purchases, and in the evening entertain friends

around the dining table, served by the butler.

freedCollyer Reed was born with the help of a doctor who certified the health of prostitutes in

a Nevada brothel. Raised by his mother and numerous “aunts,” he remembers times when he

awoke at night to see his mother engaged in her trade.

Eventually she married a wealthy miner client and they moved to

San Francisco. His stepfather died when he was eight. In less than a decade his mother’s life

had transformed from working at a rural Nevada brothel servicing mine owner-operators and

ranchers to a life in the wealthy Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco where her son

was a reminder of the past as well as a social liability. She sent him to various boarding and

military schools, including a British finishing school, a Christian Holy Roller school (his words),

Catholic Reform, and state reform school.

In Reed’s words, “I’m lucky to have lived through my youth. Any

drug I liked I used in excess, and I liked them all.”

A sober Reed and his artist wife live on a cruising sailboat in the San

Francisco Bay Area with her pit bull and a cat. When not writing, he’s an avid motorcyclist and

shares his passion for bicycles and sailing with his wife.
