The Hero Rule

(The first book in the Barclay Griffith series)
A novel by

What if doing the right thing meant doing a very bad thing?

It’s after midnight and Duncan Pheiffer sits alone in a darkened courtroom in Towne, Alabama, heavy with the burden of a verdict that has his client facing a death sentence. While he understands many of his clients are guilty, he’s certain Charlie Calvin Clements is not. And Duncan vows to continue fighting until he proves Charlie’s innocence. But any hope of exoneration ends abruptly mere hours after the jury’s verdict. Was it a random act of violence or something more sinister?

When prosecutor Barclay Griffith inserts himself into the case, he soon raises questions about Clements’ conviction—a conviction that investigators prefer to remain undisturbed.

Barclay operates under the Hero Rule, which means doing the right thing for the right reason. But following his own moral code is about to become more difficult than he ever imagined as he finds himself in an intricate web of lies where nothing is as it seems—blurring the lines between innocent and guilty. And so begins his metamorphosis from a noble prosecutor seeking the truth to a man with only one thing on his mind: Justice.

Only this time, justice takes on a whole new meaning.

What makes a hero? Is it doing the right thing…at any cost? Barclay Griffith is about to find out the hard way.
