What would YOU do if they took everything you had—
your family, your home, your business, your dignity, even—perhaps—your sanity?
Ripped from today’s headlines, The Puppet Master provides a unique solution for cleaning out the Washington, D.C. “swamp” destroying our country’s dysfunctional governmental system and moral fiber.
Like best-selling authors Scott Turow and John Grisham, Ron Barak is a lawyer who has turned his talents to writing legal and political thrillers. And like them, The Puppet Masterbrings the courtroom to life with political intrigue, suspense, murder, justifiable homicide, and more.
The Puppet Master follows but is the prequel to Barak’s previous thriller, The Amendment Killer, which has won high praise from several New York Times best-selling authors, including Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher novels.
