ILLEGAL BY ANY NAME

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, January 11, 2018, In : New Book Release 
In true E. M. Duesel fashion, ILLEGAL (Aignos 2018) is a rousing venture into the lives of Mexican-American and other undocumented immigrants who live on the border between Mexico and the United States.


Unknown to Americans who are not plagued with this specific kind of prejudice, the Peña family illustrates how difficult it can be as first generation Mexican-Americans in an environment battling vigilantes, hate groups, and Mexican cartels. The story focuses on girls on the border who go mis...

Author Richard Rose talks about the evolution of THE LAZARUS CONSPIRACIES

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, September 16, 2013, In : New Book Release 

When I first conceived the idea for The Lazarus Conspiracies, I wrote it as a film script under the title “The Lazarus Project.” The script tells the story of a maverick Chicago cop who is so obsessed with seeing justice done that he repeatedly breaks the rules of police conduct in order to catch the bad guys. The script was a top ten finalist in the Illinois/Chicago Screenwriting 2000 Competition.

A few years later I decided to expand the script into a novel. In the process, the character...

RULES OF PRIVILEGE

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, May 6, 2012, In : New Book Release 
As I mentioned just before Savant Books released my previous novel, MANIFEST INTENT, I had returned to my roots as a lawyer after my first novel, the Hawaiian thriller KANAKA BLUES.  My newest work, RULES OF PRIVILEGE, stays in that world, but strays from the environment of the big law firm into the orbit of solo practitioners, who sometimes struggle just to stay afloat. 



While the problems of large and small firms often are radically different, all lawyers, no matter the size of their firms,...

SO, A. G. HAYES, WHO IS KILLING ALL THE LAWYERS?

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, June 16, 2011, In : New Book Release 
The protagonists in my book, WHO'S KILLING ALL THE LAWYERS? are based on a couple of Special Operations Executive (SOE) agents I met during the cold war in Vienna, Austria, a few months after the end of World War II. My unit had moved from Italy into Austria to augment other units searching for fugitive Nazi’s mingling as Austrians citizens.

Several of us were trained by army intelligence to not only seek runaways, but to fraternize with the general population and gather information for coun...

Scot Anthony, a young a lawyer on the cusp of making partner at a major Dallas law firm, faces the biggest crisis of his young career: Someone is killing off the witnesses in his lawsuit with the federal government.

Trying to put the case behind him, Scot and his wife take an impromptu vacati...
