Everybody loved attorney Mike Samuelson.

Well, except for whoever killed him and chopped him up.

The cops are baffled as the killer seems to know all their moves. Mike’s brother, Steve, is a reformed fire-and-brimstone preacher who was just mending their minced relationship, but now he must figure out who minced his brother. A strange little man and a high-school beauty whose false claim of rape may have touched off the murder seem anxious to help, but can Steve and this unlikely pair figure out who the killer is before he realizes they’re chasing him?

Throw in a good dose of high-school hormones, a frustrated, grizzled detective and a random hoarder with a horrifying secret, and Steve may just find himself and his friends on the business end of a ruthless killer with nothing to lose.

MINISTER OF JUSTICE is a gritty, revenge-soaked roller coaster of a book. Strong characterizations and clearly detailed scenes made me want to be the one chasing the bad guy! If you like your murder mysteries raw and honest, this is one you’ll find hard to put down.

--Daryl Buckner, author of The Tutor and Candy From a Stranger.

Leif Wright has created a compelling series of eastern Oklahoma characters and intertwined them in a series of grisly murders centering on the protagonist who becomes the Minister of Justice. The plot twists will keep readers awake late into the night as they follow each development. The well-written prose gripped me early and remained fascinating.

--Betty Ridge, author of Deadlines: Covering Crime, Courage and Characters.
