Rise of the Unicorn (Paperback)
Augustus 'Gus' Martin is an embattled LAPD negotiator. Months after suffering a significant blow to his career, he's clawed his way back up only to come face to face with The Unicorn - bank robbers who may in fact be a terrorist group - and who seem dead set on committing the messiest daylight robbery and hostage crisis of all time. The Unicorn will only negotiate with Gus as the world watches hostages die, one-by-one. If that weren't enough, the politically desperate Mayor of Los Angeles recently appointed a new Police Commissioner... a Black woman from Texas whose credentials and competence have been quietly questioned by the rank and file. In the most pressurized of circumstances, she and Gus must trust one another in order to win a chess match against the most formidable criminal mind either has ever faced. The lives of over 30 hostages hang in the balance while philosophical questions demand very real answers.
"RISE OF THE UNICORN" is a thought provoking, emotional suspense/thriller that entertains and captivates while carrying a message that cuts across every class of society.
