Meet Kenneth Eade, Author of Killer.com
KE: I practiced law for over 30 years before embarking on a second career of writing political fiction. My books are fictional, but qualify for the label "faction" as well, because they each have a strong message to send about an issue that I consider to be important in our time. The issues that have been covered include tolerance, police brutality, civil rights, bank fraud and genetically engineered food.
KE: The phenomenon of the Internet and how it has affected daily lives has, like any other technology, had its good and bad impacts on society. One of the negative impacts has been the ability of bullies to use the Internet anonymously to attack a wider audience of victims with more intensity and power. This has actually resulted in teen suicides. I thought it would be interesting to craft a story where a group of cyber bullies hires a killer anonymously online. Little did I know, but there are sites on the "Dark Net" that purport to offer such services. "Killer.com" is the fifth book in a series of legal thrillers.
BBB: Tell us about your main character.
KE: The main character is lawyer Brent Marks. He has paid his dues for over 20 years of practicing every kind of law you can imagine just to pay the rent and keep the doors open, and now he has reached a point in his career where he can take on cases of social importance. Brent always has a cause to champion when he takes on a case, and sometimes it gets him in trouble.
BBB: What are you currently working on?
KE: It's called "Absolute Intolerance'" the story of a gay couple who are the victims of a hate crime. It is the sixth installment of the Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series.
