It begins with a murder in the town square. During the investigation, two police officers lose their lives in the most insidious of ways, with an explosive-inducing secretion, buried within the corpse of the man that detonates. But who could be capable of such a twisted crime? The police believe they know, and round up their suspects, yet in a land where everyone is due a fair trial, Samuel Kane finds himself defending the murderers, and desperately trying to get to the truth of what happened…and why they did it. The intent is far darker than how it first appears. Samuel is good. He’s sharp. Savvy. He connects well with a jury, yet he’s tenacious. He will find the truth, but if the truth sets everyone free, will he be able to live with himself?
SLMN lives off the grid. He is a ghost. There are those who want him dead. He lives a life on the move, just him and his Ducati Monster, driving from town to town. He rarely settles in one place for more than a few weeks at a time before he feels the need to move on. He doesn’t own a phone, a computer or other trackable device. In one life he has fought injustice wherever he has seen it, spending several years in developing nations helping those who couldn’t for whatever reason help themselves. He worked on projects to bring fresh water to areas without it, to provide sex and health education and secure vital aid in war torn regions. He has served on peace-keeping forces, campaigned against the deployment of landmines, and in the last decade devoted his life to ecological issues—most notably combating the illegal trade in endangered species. He has witnessed atrocities no man should ever see, and glimpsed the secret inner workings of the world run by the rich and powerful, making him enemies of some of the most dangerous men in the world. Never once has he walked away from a fight. In another life, SLMN has produced a number of movies and is both a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.
