In 1988, Frank Magnuson, a young man struggling with life's curve balls, was set to testify against a Crip kingpin who along with three other men perpetrated a robbery of a Denver restaurant. The night before the trial, two dispatched killers lay in wait in the basement of a house in Bonnie Brae owned by Frank's friend and roommate, Steve Curtis. At just before midnight in June of 1989, two young men lay dead with a third left for dead.

Ten Minutes till Midnight takes the reader into the very depths of Hell as two of these innocent men experience twenty insane moments of pure horror.

Five years after the heinous crime would justice be served? Prosecutors Al LaCabe and Mike Little, doing battle with a polished public defender and his eccentric, wily partner, would be at their passionate best to see that it was. The true story of faith, miracles and recovery, Ten Minutes till Midnight will not only leave the reader's adrenaline pulsating, but pondering the very credibility and prudence of the justice system.

    Captivating!

    This is one of the most incredible books I've ever experienced. Reading Lee's work is an experience. He takes the reader into the heart of Denver and makes you feel like you are walking the neighborhood. His presentation of the characters will make you feel like you are walking through this journey with each of them. The level of emotion, power, and drama is amazing. The story is a horrific reminder of the best and worst of human nature. There are very few books that captivate me to the point of not being able to put them down. This is one of them.

    Lee Martin Hits a Homerun with Ten Minutes Til Midnight

    Lee Martin always delivers with his mystery novels. His "Ten Minutes Til Midnight" is non-fiction but reads like a mystery novel. Mr. Martin outlines a story of Denver's Crime of the Century. He story tells how Steve Curtis, founder of LifeCommercials.com, faces evil in the face and walks away after being shot twice in the head. This is a real world story that will make your skill crawl.
