Indulge yourself in all of the excitement, intrigue, and suspense that is a Christopher Lumley novel. The Podfather James Monahan is a 37 year old struggling telemarketer desperately searching for a way to make ends meet for his family when he finally gets the call that he has been anxiously waiting for: Sergeant Allen Melton with the Hawkins County Sheriffs Department has offered him employment with the Hawkins County Jail. Working in law enforcement is what James has always dreamt of doing ever since he was a child, and that dream was now becoming a reality. Shortly after starting, James gets an up close and raw reality check into the dangers of the profession that he has so longed for, as he is pulled inside of a cell and held hostage by two inmates who are both incarcerated for first degree murder and have nothing else to lose. Just when the situation looks bleak, and James begins to accept his fate and prays, an unlikely ally steps up to save James life. Unbeknownst to James, he was the target of the Podfather: An unidentified inmate inside of the housing unit that has control over the rest of the inmates. James ignores his wifes desperate pleas to resign and returns to work one week later after having brushed off the incident as just being random. As James scrambles to find out the identity of the Podfather who had ordered him to be killed, he soon realizes that it might have been better off for him to have just died the night that he had been held hostage as both his professional and personal lives begin to quickly spiral out of control. The Podfather is now not only after James again, but also his entire family, and this time around not everyone will make it out alive in this powerful psychological thriller that tests the boundaries of ones ethics, morals, faith, and will to survive. Illusions of Justice in Revenge Lifelessly dangling from the bedroom ceiling fan by an orange extension cord that had been made into a noose. This is the nightmare that world renowned illusionist Taft Hartley woke up to one morning as he found his beloved wife Jennifer dead. Detective Tanaka, a Homicide Detective from the Morningside Police Department, was quickly called to the scene to investigate. What first looked like an apparent suicide quickly turned into a suspicious death as one big question went unanswered: How could a woman who stood only five-foot-four hang herself seven feet into the air when there was nothing around her that she could have possibly used to stand on? All of the evidence that Detective Tanaka had gathered pointed to Taft Hartley as the person solely responsible for Jennifers death, but when you live your life as an illusionist nothing is ever what it appears to be. A jury unanimously agreed with Detective Tanaka after seeing all of the evidence presented before them and sentenced Taft to death by means of electrocution. Ten years later and on the eve of Tafts execution, a reporter by the name of Terrance Stewart from the New York Daily Times gets the interview of a lifetime with a mysterious man who knows exactly what happened the night that Jennifer Hartley died. No one is prepared for the deadly domino effect that ensues once the absolute truth is revealed, for the magnitude of the hanging turns out to have far more dire consequences than anyone could have ever imagined. Just follow the clues...
