Lou Diamond is known for being the best field agent around in the Los Angeles Police Department’s elite division, the Office of Special Services. The OSS, quite simply, gets the worst crime jobs on the planet-and Lou Diamond, at one time or another, has seen them all. An ex-tactical assault agent with Special Weapons and Tactics, Diamond has enjoyed a near one hundred percent success rate in solving any crime, anywhere.
But when lawyers suddenly end up mysteriously dying at his brother’s prestigious law firm, the evidence to be found is wanting in every way. The suspects in Lou Diamond’s book are all dirty in some way, but all clear of the suspicion of murder. As the body count continues to grow at the firm he is investigating, so to does Diamond’s belief that the murderer at large is killing with a purpose other than personal revenge.
Things become more complicated still when he meets one of the firm’s most powerful partners, the beautiful and alluring, Linda Baylor. Compelled into a bizarre, sexual relationship with Baylor, Diamond begins to have a terrible suspicion that there is a gray area between sex, trust and blood. And that at the end of the day, nothing is as it seems-and no one is who they claim to be.
Lou Diamond comes to understand that the end result of such ambiguity is death.
George P. Saunders is the author of the celebrated and controversial international anomaly, The Art of Whoring – Adventures in Prostitution. He is also the author of Monster Vice, Gray Area, The Last Elf and Mars, The Bringer of War. His recently produced and critically acclaimed contribution to the zombie-genre film world Mutant Vampire Zombies From The Hood, starring C. Thomas Howell is now in worldwide distribution. A former Juilliard alumni and retired ballet dancer, Saunders plans on donating much of the proceeds to his books to the men and women of the combined armed forces of the United States of America. During his time as head writer for Military Films in the early 1990s, wherein he was the liaison for that company to the State Department to acquire combat footage for production, and provide narration over picture, Saunders had the opportunity to work with the U.S. Marines, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and with the invincible U.S. Navy Seals in Coronado, California.
Saunders spends his leisure time, when not producing, directing, writing, or acting in feature films around the world, playing chess and perfecting his martial arts, 5-Animal Kung Fu. That is, when he’s not enjoying a single-malt scotch, Glenfiddich being his favorite, in which event, he allows his mind to become his own private playground to nurture ideas for future books and screenplays. Saunders will be introducing his very first novel written at the age of 24, Whatever Gods May Be, in March of 2012, followed thereafter by Peter at the Bat, a novel revolving around an ex-Navy Seal fighting domestic terrorism.
Saunders lives in Beverly Hills, attempting to mesh in with the plastic beauty of the landscape, and failing miserably.
