New Novel Portrays a Lawman’s Battle Against Corruption

News Image

All men are equal before the law, Lady Justice wears a blindfold to be impartial, unbiased and fair in rendering her verdict. Yet there are those who would seek to obscure the fulfillment of justice, or use their wealth and power to tip the balance to their favor. Author George Arthur Bloom depicts the reckoning that comes their way in Crossing The Line.

The story begins when the bloodied body of Harding Lovejoy is found in the woods at the Candleberry Valley Country Club. The picturesque golf course is nestled in a corner of Dutchess County, New York. Due to a fluke in the property line, Connecticut State Trooper Eli Trucks finds himself in charge of the case. Yet, there is something amiss in the affluent, seemingly well-to-do community Eli is investigating, and he becomes entangled in a sinister web of betrayal and duplicity as the battle lines are drawn between the law and the four powerful families that run the valley.

Armed with his Sig Sauer P220, and a past he would like to forget, Eli discovers that lust and larceny run rampant in the wealthy community that is determined to protect its public image rather than bring a killer to justice. In Crossing The Line, the lawman must steel himself for the inexorable whirlwind of retribution that is to come, for the time when the guilty will be held accountable, and when justice will be administered in its purest form.
