Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A college student, missing for three decades. The scion of a Miami crime family, infuriated and sworn to bloody vengeance. A deep‐sea research vessel, blown to atoms by a dynamite bomb, placed by faceless persons who prefer the sea to keep its secrets forever.

And a visiting stranger, the unwilling nexus of this ever‐widening web of intrigue and violence, who arrives on the evening tides to seek out the resolution to long unanswered questions—that is, if he survives long enough to unravel it.

These are the elements that combine into a suspenseful narrative in The Law Of Unintended Consequences, and serve to proclaim an exciting new entry in the annals of today’s pantheon of reluctant heroes.

The Law Of Unintended Consequences is set in the scorching sun and sparkling shorelines of Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast, where a tourist-playground façade scarcely conceals the ominous undercurrents of crime and violence both past and present.

For Faulk Carpenter, the quest for closure in Spanish Bay becomes its own odyssey: an often dark voyage that forces him to face his own demons, all the while he becomes prey to the law of unintended consequences throughout the obstacles, entanglements and dangers he encounters—both from others, and from himself.

(The Law Of Unintended Consequences is the first book of a series centering on the Faulk Carpenter character.)
