My latest Bonanza story questions the legal definition of insanity and introduces moral dilemmas when a student of philosophy sets out to prove the concepts of good and evil are not static. His attempt to translate the language of culture to understand Paiute perspectives catches the Cartwrights and Chief Winnemucca’s tribe in a night of savagery, and then unites them in a demand for justice.

As one reader states: “Wow. From the action scenes to the in-depth philosophical discussions of responsibility and good-vs-evil, this story was well-researched, well-paced, and well-written. The Cartwrights, especially Adam, were 100% in-character. All of this made for an enjoyable story...yet also a haunting one. Some of its questions will stay with me a while.”
