There are times when the truth invites evil, and there are times when the truth can get you killed. Few residents in the secluded mountain-town of Winston, Colorado, have kind words to say about local troublemaker Sean Coleman. He's a bully, a drunk, and a crime-show addicted armchair detective with an overactive imagination. After a night of poor judgment, Sean finds himself the sole witness to the unusual suicide of a mysterious stranger. With the body whisked away in the chilling rapids of a raging river, no one believes Sean's account. When his claim is met with doubt and mockery from the people of Winston, Sean embarks on a far-reaching crusade that takes him across the country in search of the dead man's identity and personal vindication. He hopes to find redemption and the truth---but sometimes the truth is better left unknown.

Being a political commentator, I've spent A LOT of time over the past several months writing about presidential candidate, Donald Trump. The other day, someone on Twitter (who's been reading From a Dead Sleep) told me that they cracked up when they got to the part in my book about Trump. I honestly hadn't a clue what the person was talking about, so I looked into it. Sure enough, there was mention of him. Apparently, I've been writing about Trump longer than I thought.

If you’re going to have hundreds of acres in your name, it might as well be out here. In addition to the casino, Moretti’s partner owns a couple of residential properties in the area and was generous enough to let us stay at one. Three cheers for the man with the comb-over worse than Donald Trump’s.
