Politics. Power. Murder. If you want something bad enough, would you kill for it? Marcus Blanchard has worked for years to get to this night-to the eve of the Eleventh District Congressional race in Cleveland. He's determined to oust long-reigning, crooked politicians Julius McGee and William McLaughlin, and has asked his favorite law-school professor, Edward Mead, to witness the victory. But just as the results are about to be announced, Marcus disappears.and a woman is murdered. Worse, Alontay Johnson is his old girlfriend, and he's caught crouching over her body. Did he strangle her, or was he framed? And who will believe him? It's up to the quirky, arthritic Ed Mead, who hasn't been in a courtroom in years, to defend his friend and client.while the State of Ohio seeks the death penalty.

From the Author:

What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to write a Classical murder mystery wrapped inside a legal thriller to encourage my readers to get involved in the political process. Biblical Christianty is the only cure for the ills of society.    

What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  While I always hope to entertain my readers, I hope folks will see the critic need for Christian to be engaged in their communities. The drugs epidemic, racisim, and political corruption are rampant in our world, and only by Christians being salt and light can we hope to have a positive influence for the Kingdom of God.

How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  During the research, I was surprised by the various special interest groups that make up much of the liberal left in our country. Most of these groups have nothing in common with the exception that they oppose social and financial conservatism. 

Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The writing for this book was greatly influenced by the writings of Walter Williams, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Hugh Hewitt, and Rush Limbaugh.
