Reno, NV (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
New author Mark Shaff’s book Redemption Road (Moonshine Cove Publishing LLC, May, 2013) is now available on Amazon (http://tinyurl.com/cffo4px) and through retail outlets. The concept for writing Redemption Road came from a conversation the author overheard at a summer party. “Someone was referring to an incident in the news as a probable terrorist act. My imagination came alive and this isolated short conversation became the genesis for my book,” Shaff says. Redemption Road is an action thriller with international intrigue. The first chapter involves father and husband Marcus Diablo realizing his missing wife has been abducted by a group of homegrown terrorists, setting the stage for chaos and one man’s desperate search. The backdrop for this novel spans the globe opening in the Eastern Sierras, jumping to the harsh Australian Outback, on to the lawless tribal lands of the Middle East, and ending in the unforgiving waters of the Bering Sea.
In media interviews, Shaff is frequently asked about his choice to write a book with violence and terrorism as part of the plot while terrorism is a real threat in America today. “I have had to ponder that question as a man, writer, father, husband and American citizen. I believe that context is imperative to a story that includes violence. Redemption Road is a love story, a story about a man who will go to heroic measures to find his wife and avenge her abduction. The violence in my book I believe is appropriate to the story line. I don’t believe that violence merely for the sake of sensationalism is healthy for our culture. We all need to be morally responsible and be careful not to perpetuate or glorify violent acts,” Shaff reflects.
