    At one time, the media respected former New York Times reporter Frank Corso until he wrote a fraudulent piece. Frank lost his job, the esteem of his peers, and his fiancée. He was fortunate that Natalie Van Der, owner of the Seattle Sun, took a chance on him by giving Frank a job. Even after mishandling another story, she kept him on as a columnist and his name drew readers and advertisers and more money.

    Frank became a recluse, writing a book and turning in his columns twice a week. His world changes again when his employer calls in her marker and sends Frank on an investigative job. A man awaits state execution for murder, but the star witness recants her testimony. To keep an innocent person from receiving lethal injection, Frank has four days to find the truth.

    G.M. Ford, famous for his Leo Waterman mysteries, takes a turn and starts a new series starring a fresh antihero. Leo makes a cameo appearance, which serves as a catalyst to move the story line forward. Fran is an enigma who is hard to understand, but readers will like that he takes responsibility for his actions even those that go wrong. The buck stops with him, which makes FURY a mesmerizing tale that is finished in one sitting.
