About When We Were Married – Volume 1 -The Long Fall by Daniel Quentin Steele
FEB. 13, 2014 ON – WHEN WE WERE MARRIED – AN 800 PAGE 220,000 word Twisted Valentine Epic on Amazon for $2.99 of lost love, hot lust, very explicit, dirty sex, murder, mayhem, cheating, emotional affairs, sexual affairs, courtroom duels, international drug cartels, deadly assassins, psychiatrists, fractured families, everyday heroes, cops, lawyers, crooks and thugs in sunny Jacksonville, Florida. Not to mention two of the largest pair of breasts in Northeast Florida.
In addition to love, lust, crime and punishment, this is novel that tells you who REALLY runs the criminal justice system. The novel’s hero, a short, fat, balding, hero who can’t do it for his wife Debbie in bed anymore, William Maitland, knows and tells all:
“That’s what most people don’t understand. The people with real power aren’t cops. They just investigate and arrest. The people with real power aren’t judges. They have a lot of power, but who they see and what charges they deliberate on don’t come from them. I decide that. In my hands is the power to decide who is arrested and who is released; who faces death or 25 years or who gets mercy. And there really is no oversight, nobody looking over my shoulder.
Cops can bitch, but my decisions are final. Judges can bitch and threaten to take action, but they never do. The only person with any real power is the Big Man, and he had given me the Keys to the Kingdom and he had never in five years countermanded any decision I’d made.”
Follow the loves, hates, affairs and blazing sexual encounters behind closed doors that are a part of the court system in Jacksonville. Because, as one Public Defender notes, “every courthouse is just a little Peyton Place.”
Against all odds as his personal world collapses in flames, , Maitland continues to stand aganst evil armed only with a superb legal mind, the powers of the prosecutor’s office, bulldog stubbornness and a compulsion to do the right thing no matter what the cost. And a basic decency that gives him surprising allies from the Florida underworld to a Colombian crime cartel.
And in the wake of a bitter divorce, Debbie Maitland-Bascomb will dump Maitland for a gorgeous young stud, but will find that beauty is not a shield against pain and loneliness, and that it is harder to walk away from Maitland than she expected it to be.
