His choices: prison or death. Which scares him more?

When fifteen-year-old Denzel Payton is charged with the murder of a disabled veteran at a homeless camp, he’s trapped in a no-win situation: remain silent and risk almost certain conviction, or name the real killer and face the wrath of a monster who terrifies him.

After Denzel’s attorney is murdered, lawyers Tony Valenti and Penelope Brooks step up to defend him, despite the risk of becoming the killer’s next targets.  As the evidence against their client mounts and potential defense witnesses vanish, Tony and Penelope race to unravel a dark secret that may hold the key to the case. They’ll need smarts, guts, and a little luck to save Denzel.

About the author (2022)

Neil Turner is the author of the gripping and highly-acclaimed Tony Valenti crime and legal thrillers. The sixth installment will publish in the fall of 2022.  After cutting his teeth on Beatrix Potter and Thornton W. Burgess animal stories, he progressed to devouring grown-up books before the audacious idea of writing a novel eventually wormed its way into his head. Now, with his first series published, two new suspense stories at various stages of development, and two-thirds of a thriller trilogy completed and agitating to be let loose in the world, he’s thinking that the writing idea was a pretty good one!

A native Canadian, Neil spent three years in Europe and lived in Chicago and Arizona during a lengthy stint in banking and finance. His early career plans to play professional ice hockey and indulge his love of music by playing guitar (badly) fell by the wayside along the way, but he still dabbles. You’ll find references to music and places he’s lived sprinkled through his work.

Neil lives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
