    Rep Pennyworth is a junior partner in a major Indiana law firm, but he is not a typical Midwest lawyer. He is content in his relatively low-level position and has no desire for any excitement especially at work. His only exception is his enjoyment for spanking fantasies that he indulges in chat rooms and Internet porn sites.

    His quiet lifestyle changes when he is forced to take on Charlotte Buchanan as a client since her father is one of the firm's most important clients. She wrote a novel “And Done No Other's Harm”, which was made into movie without her consent or remuneration. What is a simple case of copyright infringement turns into a criminal conspiracy that threatens Rep's life.

    SCREENSCAM is a satirical take on legal thrillers that uses humor to enhance the plot. The protagonist is an “everyman” with the concerns and fears that all humans have. That makes the hero accessible and likable to the audience in spite of his fetish, which is the high point of slapstick. Michael Bowen has a refreshing style of writing that will make this author a cult favorite.
