Tony Torson, and author of The Devil's Wind and Cicero's Progeny, presents this classic tale of a miscarriage of justice in Los Angeles.Near the beach, Holly Britton is brutally raped. Detectives respond to few clues until three weeks later when a young man jogs by Holly triggering a chilling recollection. Arrested for rape, Jeff Daniels hires attorney Michael Skylar who questions his senior partner "August" Chamberlain's tactics achieving recent acquittals that secured stiff legal fees and bolstered the firm's sagging fortunes. Daniels' parents pay a princely sum to Chamberlain, necessitating another acquittal.Gary Deems, "The Demon," a local reporter, brands Jeff, 'The Full Moon Rapist." Judge Thomas P. Radding is thunderstruck, seeing Daniels' profile which mirrors his own son and, obsessed with fears of his children shaming the family, the elder judge grows suspicious his son, not Daniels, committed the crimes. Skylar's years of litigation had not prepared him for Judge Radding accusing victims of bizarre sexual practices and dishonesty, making faces, rolling his eyes and twirling his glasses. The DA screams "Mistrial."

Tony Torson, a tax attorney for twenty years, was sidelined by a horrific surgical mishap. However well degreed, (AA, BA, MA, JD, LLM), the author is still a cowboy at heart.
A passionate history buff and a witty social commentator, Tony Torson is conversant on many synchronous social themes and knowledgeable in numerous areas of the law. A former part-time college and law professor, the author now pursues the fictional dream.
Raised in Reno, Nevada, he spent his youth hiking, hunting and fishing all over the west, and although he has lived in San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles, he remains an avid outdoors person and much prefers the simple life of the mountains. He now resides in the historic village of Goodyears Bar, CA, deep in the heart of California’s gold country, where (when not researching or writing) spends his time searching for relics and collectible junk, and is learning the fine art of prospecting (one can always hope for a nugget or two).
The author’s Black and White Series is designed to appeal to a mass market audience of male and female readers alike for a fine fictional experience. The stories are both fast paced and thought provoking.
Besides being deep in a new series of novels and completing a collection of short stories to be published later this year, his current writing project is an anatomy of his own medical-malpractice encounter with University of California, San Francisco Hospital.
