Stains on the Gavel

Stains on the Gavel is a heart-pumping thriller; A Wonderful and descriptively tale written by Charles W. Massie
-Maria Beltran, Reader's Favorite reviews-

The nightmare began in July of 2009.

This true story is about southern Kentucky, where the rules are sometimes made up on the fly. Even though it is set in the middle of the bible-belt, some people put their own goals ahead of justice.

Reader’s Favorite reviewer Lit Amri writes: “This novel exposes the ugly truth of how easily it is for certain people to manipulate the system that they are sworn to uphold. “Stains on the Gavel” truly captivated me. The author's straightforward writing style works well and kept me glued to the pages. I salute Mark Casey’s bravery for fighting the system. At its core, this novel examines a challenging ethical debate and true crime novel fans won’t be disappointed.”
