In my experience the IRS fails to atone, or even officially apologize, for its wrongs when in error.

When lawyer Pete Johnson’s clients experienced harassment by the IRS, his response was unique: To pursue taxpayer vengeance in fiction.

Johnson’s new novel, “Wolves of the Revenue,” is a riveting thriller that confronts the IRS about taxpayer abuse.

“In my experience the IRS fails to atone, or even officially apologize, for its wrongs when in error,” Johnson said. “Unlike with the CIA and FBI, the Service is rarely a focal point in fiction.”

“Wolves of the Revenue” relates the story of a taxpayer coping with two IRS agents’ harassing audits, assessments and seizures.

To absolve himself and experience the satisfaction of vindication, this leads the protagonist down a path where betrayal, forbidden love and revenge awaits him.

Johnson, a lawyer who has resolved his clients’ occasional tax problems with the IRS, loosely based the story on IRS struggles with a now-deceased client.

Johnson, an award-winning writer, uses his legal expertise and flair for writing to offer a compelling narrative.
