Beverly Hills, California – WEBWIRE

“I have been compared to John Grisham, because he likes to wrap a story around important issues, But we’re really different because if I don’t have an important issue to talk about, there is no story”

In the vein of his wildly popular legal thriller series, Author Kenneth Eade delivers another solid and intricately plotted tale. ‘HOA Wire’ is a traditional mystery crime thriller that keeps the reader guessing until the very end.  Like all of Eade’s novels, however, it is wrapped around an important social issue.  The issue tackled by ’HOA Wire’ is the interference of homeowners associations with the individual rights of property owners.

’HOA Wire’ has been acclaimed by critics.  Top Books Worth Reading said,  “Crime, betrayal, thought-provoking questions related to ethics and morality – this novel has everything it needs to become a must-read for any lover of true crime literature.”

I Publisher News said,  “HOA Wire is much more than a suspenseful, fast-paced crime novel; it is a courtroom drama that will remind readers of pulp thrillers and will keep them glued to the pages. Eade is brilliant when it comes to creating complicated, intriguing stories that end in mind-blowing surprises, and some have said that his novels will remind readers of John Grisham, proving that Kenneth Eade deserves to be on the same lists with the world’s greatest thriller authors.”

“I have been compared to John Grisham, because he likes to wrap a story around important issues,  But we’re really different because if I don’t have an important issue to talk about, there is no story,“ says Eade.  ”All of my novels focus on an important social issue.  With ’An Involuntary Spy,’ it was genetically engineered foods.  With ’Predatory Kill,’ the banking crisis, and with ’A Patriot’s Act,’ the violation of our civil liberties by the government.  This book is a little lighter, in that it is more of a traditional courtroom drama, but it tackles the issue of the overreaching of homeowners associations, which is becoming a real problem.”

Synopsis:

The President of the Local Homeowners Association is Murdered, and Every Resident is a Suspect

Brent Marks thinks he is dealing with a routine foreclosure defense until his client is implicated in the crime and calls upon Brent to defend her. To make matters worse, another client’s destiny is about to cross their path. Is Brent defending an innocent or guilty client? At the crossroads of morality and ethics, the courtroom drama explodes, while the action outside the courtroom spirals out of control.

About the Author:

Best selling author Kenneth Gordon Eade is an American environmental activist, author and lawyer, best known for his legal and political thrillers. Eade’s first bestseller on Amazon.com was “An Involuntary Spy,” a fictional spy thriller that critics have said has broken wide open the GMO controversy.  The story follows a rogue scientist working for an American biotech firm who goes on the run from authorities after stealing information from his employer which proves government collusion and a cover-up of fraud surrounding the dangers of the company’s genetically engineered foods.

His second novel, “Predatory Kill,” tackled the big banks, and is the first of a legal thriller series in which the series character, lawyer Brent Marks, tackles a wrongful foreclosure lawsuit against a major bank that turns into a murder investigation.

His third novel, “A Patriot’s Act,” has been acclaimed as fast-paced, well-written legal thriller dealing with negative consequences of the Patriot Act, and is a prequel in the Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series, which matches Marks against the United States government, in an attempt to free a naturalized U.S. citizen from detention at Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp.

The story follows a rogue scientist working for an American biotech firm who goes on the run from authorities after stealing information from his employer which proves government collusion and a cover-up of fraud surrounding the dangers of the company’s genetically engineered foods.

All his books are all thrilling fictitious storylines uniquely created by Kenneth Eade, a bestselling author who has built a strong reputation for masterful suspense. The same holds true for Eade’s latest release, “HOA Wire.” “The novel was just released this year,” he says. “When I have inspiration, I write until I am exhausted.”

The setting takes place in the quiet Orange Grove neighborhood. Residents become frantic when the president of the homeowner’s association is murdered. “There are plenty of suspects,” says Eade. “Every resident who lives there.”

Fans who’ve already read the book cover-to-cover are describing it as a fast-paced, action-packed, thought-provoking crime thriller that is truly exhilarating. “HOA Wire” is just one of several novels that Eade has written over the years. “I recommend that everyone reads A Patriot Act and Predatory Kill before HOA Wire,” he says. “Each one of these novels stands alone, but the story lines will have much greater impact if they are read in this specific order.”

Kenneth Eade attended the Honors Program at El Camino Real High School, which allowed him to attend classes at Los Angeles Pierce College at the age of 15. By the time he graduated from high school in 1975, he had amassed over two years of transferable credits. He graduated from California State University, Northridge, before attending Southwestern Law School, where he graduated in 1980 the youngest member of his class. After Southwestern, he practiced civil and criminal law for about a decade, then went into business law with an emphasis on securities law, and civil litigation.

In 2011, Eade began writing opinion pieces for the Los Angeles Daily Journal. Two of the articles centered on the subject of the unconstitutionality of the now defunct Monsanto Protection Act, and the dangers of genetically modified foods and neonicitinoid pesticides and their adverse effect on bees. This led to his first book, the non-fiction work, “Bless the Bees: The Pending Extinction of our Pollinators and What You Can Do to Stop It” in 2013, as well as the children’s book, “Bee See: Who are our Pollinators and Why are They in Trouble?”

All of Eade’s novels involve the fictitious character, Brent Marks and are known as the Brent Marks Legal Thrillers. All of these books are now available on Amazon.com.

Will the Best Courtroom Drama of 2015 be One that Was Written in the 1950’s?

watchman

Go Set a Watchman has been announced as Harper Lee’s second novel, but is it really?  The much anticipated sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, is actually the first manuscript that Lee wrote before Mockingbird, which she attempted to get published in the 1950’s.  Already dubbed on its Amazon pre-order page as an “instant classic,” the typewritten manuscript was the discovery of Lee’s lawyer, Tonja Carter, who took over the author’s affairs after her older sister (also a lawyer) passed away last year.

Harper Lee is said to be deaf and blind, but still mentally sharp at 88 years old.  Still, controversy has surrounded the discovery and publication of Watchman, which is said to be both a prequel and a sequel to Mockingbird, as the story is told from the perspective of a grown up Scout, the main character.

Lee is reported to be very “happy as hell” over the publication of her manuscript, but nobody knows if that sentiment is really coming from the author because all statements are coming from her lawyer. When Mockingbird became an instant success in 1960, Lee vowed to never publish again saying: ‘I wrote one good book and that was enough’.  Adding to the confusion, Lee’s editor at Harper Collins has not even read the manuscript yet, and, reportedly, says it will not be edited.

As with any other discovery of a great author or artist’s work, arguments are now being made that the manuscript belongs to the world, so Lee’s objections, if she indeed has any and if they can be voiced, are irrelevant.  One thing is for sure- Harper Collins and Lee’s lawyer are going to make a lot of money from what is being called the greatest literary discovery of the 21st century.
