"A SHOCKING INDICTMENT OF OUR SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND THE POLITICS THAT PERMEATE IT." -Raymond Shaffer, Nevada State Senator Lee Miller was a popular young professor in Las Vegas who thought he was on the fast-track to tenure. He had created an innovative study abroad program with the help of a distinguished U.S. senator, and had found funding for needy students wishing to participate. It was just his first year at the college, and the newspapers already had reported on his work. Little did he know that someone had other plans for the money earmarked for the needy students ... someone who would stop at nothing to crush Millers plans. This true story reads like a novel. Miller weaves an amusing tale of teaching at a community college in "Sin City" with the unpredictable twists and turns of a scandal involving some of the most powerful figures in the state ... a scandal that threatens to end the careers of several administrators at the college. "This book is extremely entertaining and very accurate. It is a very good read." Steve Sisolak, Regent, University and Community College System of Nevada "THIS IS AN IMPORTANT BOOK. IT SHOULD SERVE TO PREVENT SUCH MADNESS FROM OCCURRING AT OTHER COLLEGES." Alexander Greenfeld, former Professor, University of California at Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism LEE RYAN MILLER has taught political science and economics for more than a decade at colleges and universities in the United States and Japan. He is the author of two political science books. He also has written two epic fantasy novels (as yet unpublished). He resides in Modesto, California. For more information, visit his website:

Patrick Bluett is searching for a new life in the low light of a Copenhagen winter. Divorced and navigating the rocky relationship with his grown-up, nest-flown children, Bluett spends his days listening to John Coltrane's majestic jazz symphony A Love Supreme and gazing out at the frozen streets, a desolate landscape that somehow matches his reflection in the window. His nights, however, are a little different. Walking unsteadily across the cobblestones, he moves between the neon-tinted bars and clubs of his adopted home, talking whiskey, women and the world with the other lost souls of Copenhagen, those who only seem to come out at night. But when he befriends a neighbour, a man in similar circumstances, the apartment across the hall reveals some strange secrets and Bluett realises how little he really knows of the darkness of the city.

From the bestselling author of The Neon Lawyer comes a page-turning thriller about a scrappy lawyer and his fight for justice. Personal injury attorney Peter Game has a reputation: cynical, untroubled by ethics, and willing to take any case, anytime, in his pursuit of the win. He dreams of a sweetheart score that'll make his name and net him millions. Then comes the lightning rod: a school shooting just outside of Salt Lake City. His client: the devastated mother of one of the victims. What she wants is understandable--just not simple: to sue the manufacturers of the automatic weapon used in the mass killing. Game's opponent, brilliant lawyer Brennen Garvin, is the least of his problems: the entire legal system, influenced by decades of pressure from powerful gun lobbies, is stacked against him. For Game, this is the case of a lifetime. He's just not sure his trademark rules will work in his favor. And he's not sure he wants them to. As Game's lust for victory gives way to a hunger for justice, he could lose everything--or win back his soul.
