Before pursuing a writing career, Jeffrey Poston obtained an electrical engineering degree in laser optics and was an Air Force officer and gentleman. He lives in the great American southwest in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In his series inspired by a brush with police brutality, Poston brings visibility to issues behind today’s headlines: police violence, racism, and constant threat of terrorism.
"I wrote the novel because ten years ago I was jacked up by police, and for ten years I’ve been dealing with the trauma of that experience. This is a work of fiction, but the perceived violence of police against non-white citizens is a complicated topic. What I’ve tried to capture are the thoughts and feelings and fears of a wanted man trying to deal with the loss of his family, his dignity, and his very reason for living."
Poston has woven an intricate and suspenseful tale with a very realistic view of police use-of-force doctrine and the power of the government in attempting to prevent domestic terror attacks.
