Overview

When Donny Speck, a lawyer with a major league chip on his shoulder, crosses his fat cat client over a few billion dollars in oil money he soon finds himself in a fight for his life.

“T.L. Peters' way of writing is wonderful.” Kyanara

"There's no question that Peters is a master wordsmith." Gerry B's Book Reviews

I found this book to be really brave, original and fun. Donny Speck is not your average hero - sometimes one wonders if he is a hero at all. Whatever he is he is certainly a character with a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and attracting the attention of all the wrong people. If you like an irreverant, refreshing story that is not like anything you've ever read before then this is the novel for you. Gina at Books Count

This is an odd and somewhat interesting novel, which takes you from the quintessential law offices in the States and into the unbridled and rioting country of Bolivia. The descriptions of the area are well written and you can see the happenings. I believe the genre would fit the suspense category, with a bit of romance thrown in. It is also riddled with humor, a sort of tongue in cheek variety. Leslie at the TicToc Blog.

    Wierd book

    Had a hard time getting thru this book. Too strange for me.

    It's well worth checking out.

    This book gave me a perspective on lawyers and law firms that I never really had before. Peters shows you what they're really thinking when they're pretending to be drafting your will or power of attorney. It sure was eye opening. The plot was solid, but not out of this world. Donny Speck's character was a real winner though, at least from a reader's perspective. And I thought I had weird fantasies. The day dream sequences were well done. It would have been easy to blow it.

    Highly recommended.

    An offbeat, quirky look into a bizarre but yet strangely relatable psyche. The novel starts off with a fast paced action scene and then takes its time leading you through various psychological twists and turns. It's character driven with a solid story line and a surprise ending. I wasn't expecting much from a self published book from an unknown author, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's not the best book I've ever read, but I'd put it in the top 20 percent. I'm still not quite sure what's wrong with Donny Speck, but I ended up liking the guy anyway.
