I think of the irony of the title (Agent for Justice) of my second novel often because the character of Brad Wallace could be just what the Stacey Burns murder case needs. Brad sees so much injustice in the world in general and in his life in particular that he decides to undertake the role of a righter of wrongs, a Don Quixote jousting with the windmills of indifference and apathy. In the process, he sinks deeper and deeper into a dangerous sociopathic rut, alienating his family and closest friends.
Now, with the paperback/e-book versions of Agent for Justice in the works, it seems a good time to draw some analogies between fiction and fact.
Stacey Burns needs an agent for justice, someone willing to take extraordinary steps to see that her life meant something and that her death deserves the same attention now as it did five years ago. This person need not go the extremes of a Bradford Wallace, wreaking havoc on the lives of innocent people, but would only have to care enough to not let her physical death be the death of the spirit and vitality she possessed.
Agent for Justice in original hard cover is out of print and the publisher is no longer in business so I’ll be working with another publisher on the new editions.
