Conifer, CO (PressExposure) June 29, 2011 -- LA lawyer Ronald S. Barak was enjoying a social event when a friend dared him to write a better novel than one they were discussing. He stepped up. The result is his highly-acclaimed novel, A Season for Redemption, which will be released this week in Kindle format (Amazon claims more digital sales than print sales now). While the hardback and paperback were popular, Barak is blown away by the power of digital ebooks and is anxious to see the sales numbers on this version.
A Season for Redemption was already in print and on bookshelves when Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was brutally attacked in a Tucson shopping center. While written purely as fiction, the plot does eerily mirror the current heated political climate, including Jared Loughner's repulsive attack on Ms. Giffords. http://amzn.to/lyGDMJ
Barak's novel focuses on the brutal murders of three prominent D.C. political leaders-putting Capitol Hill in a panic. Some whisper the three had it coming because their corruption played a significant role in the collapse of the economy. (Sound familiar?) A beleaguered husband and father seems the perp, but the plot thickens as cagey Detective Lotello begins to unravel this captivating thriller.
Rave reviews include "witty, informative and flows...," "solid and meaningful"...," "best I've read in this past year"..., "beyond compelling...," "Ron Barak is going places," "...on the edge of your seat"... "absolute page-turner."
Barak, an L.A. an experienced trial attorney with 40+ years in practice, brings great legal expertise and realism to his fictional courtroom scenes. He is presently at work on his second novel and is excited about his future as an author. "I just hope readers have fun reading what I am writing."
Available on Amazon, the release of the book in ebook format is expected to bring as many as half a million visitors to his book page on Wednesday, June 29. Get in line. Read more at the Amazon book page for A Season for Redemption. http://amzn.to/lyGDMJ
