Rick and Janet saw the For Sale by Owner sign purely by chance. They had no idea that by showing interest in the property they would be involved in murder, fraud, attempted murder and strange happenings that could not be explained.
The home was just what they were looking for, an ocean view, the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms and so on. When they pulled up to the front of the house, they encounter a man they presume is the owner, he appears to occupy the house with his daughter, or so he says.
The house sale proceedings become stranger by the minute especially when the State Police and the Coast Guard show up at the attorney’s office during the paperwork singing. They inform the group that the homeowner and his daughter are feared dead and that they have ended their search.
Strange things begin to manifest themselves that pull Rick, Janet and their neighbor Adam into the search for the missing father and daughter. The home owners brother pushes for the sale to move quickly to a conclusion causing the group to wonder why?
The sound of the horn coming from the small sailboat stopped the two coast guard seamen as they loaded their gear on the inflatable. Both men stared at the small boat laying on its side on the stony harbor, their minds told them it was not possible. And yet, they both heard it…

I am currently in the process of writing a trilogy of stories about a terrorist that wreaks havoc in the US, but due to commitments and time constraints I am struggling to complete the work.
Having consulted with a number of ghost writers to help, I find that the only way I can gain any ground is to pay them an upfront fee.
My hope is to find a writer that sees the opportunity and the vision of the stories and would be willing to invest in the time to help complete the stories and reap the rewards at the end.
I have been assured that the premise of the stories are relevant to the times and the complexity or simplicity of the actions are the key to a resounding success.
Countless research has gone into the technical, and physical aspects of the story, now the only thing left is to flesh out the books in their entirety. Once complete these stories could become the most acclaimed works. So we will see where this story goes.
Book Review - An Innocent Man
Even though this book was published in 2006 it seemed an appropriate read with all of the trials and forthcoming litigations about to unfold.
This, in my opinion, is a classic case or cases of rush to judgment, the police think they have their man and even without damning physical evidence they pursue not only a conviction but the death penalty. The attorneys are no better, their prosecution tactics are a joke and as for the defense I was left wondering throughout the book whose side they were on. I don't normally read non-fiction because I find reality stranger than fiction and in some cases harder to believe.
Below is a quote from John, this quote drew me in to read the book, it is a powerful statement and a fantastic example of how an author, in just a few words, can pull you in and entice you to read their work.
The crime in all of this as in any injustice, the defendant has to spend extreme amounts of money to hire an attorney to defend themselves even though there is no case to begin with. Whatever happened to fair play and sitting down with both parties and talking through the situation. Then again if that were to happen more often than not, more attorneys would have to find other employment.
"If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you."John Grisham
