When Truth Liesby Bradley Scott Cowan
The developer gives him a one million
Brad Conner, a once successful mortgage broker, is down on his luck. Recovering from a serious automobile accident, out of work and out of money, Brad's future looks far from bright. When an old friend offers him the dream deal of a lifetime-brokering a multi-billion dollar casino condominium project-Brad jumps at the chance.
The developer gives him a one million dollar deposit and Brad is in deep before he realizes just what kind of deal he's financing. The Teamsters Union and the Indian Warrior Society both have a stake and Granger handles these powerful investors same as the appraisers and engineers - through blackmail, fraud and, if necessary, murder.
Brad soon discovers that Granger's involved in even far more sinister business dealings-slave operations in Northern Africa and using his own personal, elite army and air force to protect his assets. Meanwhile, there's an FBI agent who's hell-bent on taking Brad down.
Can Brad get out without spending the rest of his life in prison or escaping assassination? Based on true events, fact and fiction become harder to distinguish, and set against the wealthy landscapes of Canada, Las Vegas, the Bahamas, and Vatican City, this is a steamroller of a novel.

Scott's writing style is crisp, pointed. He knows how to set the stage and surprise his readers.
Alan Poirier, Editor, Medicine Hat News...one of Alberta's largest daily papers
Scott brings a fascinating background to everything he writes. From big city USA Detroit...to small town, Canada Medicine Hat. He knows both milieus intimately. He knows the automotive industry, high finance, and real estate from the perspective of an entrepreneur and a worker. A candidate for public office, he is skilled at the art of politics. A genuine student of human nature, he knows what makes people tick, what's important to them. His writing is honest, provocative, and controversial: always a good read.

I am not usually a fiction reader, but this novel kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I read it in one sitting, I just could not put it down. Every chapter was exciting and informative. In spots it was more of a self help/textbook. But never stuffy or boring. It was as if the characters became real, friends and enemies of your own experience. The last loose end doesn't get tied until the last page. By the middle of the book you will hate the villin and love Brad and Alison. In spots you will laugh and in others lose your breath. I can't endorse it high enough, It would be a great Christmas gift.
