|Plot Summary of Cinderella Liberty: A Novel of America|
Cinderella Liberty is about a private detective named Rick Olson whose client dies mysteriously at U.S. Customs. Rick begrudgingly leaves his beloved Thailand to solve the riddle, only to become enraged at being harassed by U.S. Customs officers because of sinister motives. His outrage
against warrantless searches and the forfeiture laws is shared by former Supreme Court justice, Theodore Marsh. Together they join hands to carry out their mutual cause: the elimination of warrantless and forfeiture laws. As they carry the fight to the halls of Congress, those whose livelihood depends upon such laws are threatened. Renegade law enforcement personnel form a secret society to destroy anyone who attempts to endanger their continued existence and funding. The odds are overwhelming and the stakes are high for both sides. America's belief in personal freedom is
at risk, and so is law enforcement's future. A collision course in the making.
