A Thoroughly Bad Individual

A novel by

How far would you go to help a friend who was in deep trouble on a crooked business deal?

Stan Flory, a successful corporate attorney, went too far, and got caught up in a scandal. He ended up as a beachcomber in Sarasota, Florida.

Now, years later, Stan's friend, Bud Richter, is back, asking for another favor - - he wants Stan to defend him against a murder charge. When Stan reluctantly agrees, he finds himself outgunned by the prosecution, disturbed by Bud's dark family secrets, and overwhelmed by the allure of Bud's mercurial wife. To save Bud's life, Stan must dig deep into his own legal, physical, and moral strengths, and improvise an astonishing defense.

"Michael Biehl's distinctive voice and deft plotting are like a refreshing breeze in a field where supple prose seems all too rare. It is a real pleasure to watch him capture a character or set a scene with a few well-executed strokes."
- Michael Bowen, author of Servive Dress Blues and Shoot The Lawyer Twice

Mixing suspense, compassion, and dark humor, A Thoroughly Bad Individual is a story of how the scams that precipitated the Great Recession damaged the guilty and the innocent alike, and how unconditional loyalty to a flawed friend can both destroy and redeem.

"[Biehl] constructs dialogue and action sequences exceedingly well, and his characters are multi-dimensional, with problems and issues that affect them in realistic ways."
- ForeWard Magazine"
