About the Book

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke.

Throughout history, mad men seeking power and riches have toppled countries, governments and major corporations, because good men stood by and let it happen. After Shock is a story about mad men and good men. Where the good men wind up dead or running for their lives, and where mad men meet an unexpected justice.

Opening with the fictional recreation of a real catastrophe, a 7.1 California quake that brings down The San Francisco Bay Bridge, After Shock is the rapid unraveling of the graft, payoffs and illegal campaign financing that is just "business as usual" within the State.  Channel 7 reporters; Julia and Rob outwit an unsuspecting government employee, learning that the bolts in the Bay Bridge were substandard counterfeit bolts. This Julia reveals on a nationally aired news conference and the cover-up in on.

Think you've got it figured out? It's fast, action-packed suspense in a complex, entangled plot that will keep you guessing until the very end. And, it's realistic, because the characters of After Shock are built on the authors' 35-year career in international business.
