George Beckett has a guilty secret, not from something he’s done but something he didn’t do. Something that youth, alcohol and the intoxicating substance called “power” kept him from doing. Now, he’s caught in the cross-fire between two opposing, powerful men…the one that wants him to keep quiet and the one that wants him to speak up. George is going with the status quo until his job in the D.A.’s office brings him into contact with the father of a murder victim. Can he look away one more time, or is he going to use this opportunity to break free of the silence he’s kept for so long?
Walter Walker’s “Crime of Privilege” is a fun thriller of a book with terrific suspense and a wry sense of humor. Even though it’s clearly stated that this is work of fiction, readers may be quite entertained by certain similarities between headlines and fiction. This book is hard to put down and thoroughly satisfying! “Crime of Privilege” is slated for release on June 18, 2013.
