I am recounting this story in case I am not around when the dust settles. If some accident should befall me, as they say, and I am unable to testify, I want to have some account of what I did and why. I will not try to justify my actions. I could tell you that they made me do it, but that's hardly the point, and it may not be entirely accurate.
I won't lie to you, which is to say I will not deliberately mislead you. I will give you the most accurate account of events I can muster, but I can't promise it will be the truth. Truth is a matter of perspective, and if you don't believe me, then just watch how this whole thing plays out. Everyone who is a part of this story will tell a different version, when their time comes. In most of those versions, the hero will be whoever is telling the story.
In many of those versions, no doubt, the villain will be me.
Thus begins my new novel, BREACH OF TRUST, the one that is kinda-sorta based on the prosecution of Rod Blagojevich. Here is the Chicago Tribune's review of BREACH OF TRUST.
You can buy the book here. And while I'm at it, I have a new website, where you can read another excerpt from the book or anything else related to the novel or me, for that matter.
Thanks for letting me plug! Just leaving Scottsdale and Poisoned Pen, now off to Houston and San Francisco....
