When the circumstances play truth and dare with the morality of my hero SJ, when his best friends are fired from the company courtesy recession...
Coder’s Cocktail takes him on a journey where he rediscovers all that was hidden under the bed sheet of his bachelor wants and sleeping conscience; he discovers his true self!
