"I'll pay you $10,000 just to listen to my offer of employment, Mr. Gifford." 
Private investigator Ren Gifford is hired by an eccentric billionaire to locate Glen Moreland, an employee who has disappeared. Everything about the case is strange, from the initial meeting with the client to the constant meddling by the client's front man. Glen had deliberately gone off the grid to avoid dire consequences he knew he would face when his employment contract ended. 
As Ren delves deeper into the case, he learns how and why Glen fled. Shocked by the grisly details, Ren wonders how Glen was able to continue working for his employer for almost five years. Ren deduces Glen's location, but faces a moral dilemma; whether to honor his commitment to his client and give him Glen's whereabouts or help Glen escape. 
Deciding on the latter would incur his client’s wrath and possibly deadly vengeance.

About the author

Joe retired from the US Postal Service in 2010, after thirty-six years. Not long after, he became the proofreader and jack of all trades for author Connie Suttle, a long-time, very close friend.

With Connie as his inspiration, he decided to write a book of his own, Malefactor. The manuscript languished in a dusty computer folder for almost twenty years before he finally found his author's voice. He felt he had a good story idea, but he basically had to start over, because the old manuscript was woefully out of date.

Joe lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA, with his two kids, Dingo and Ringo, miniature long-coat Chihuahuas.
