I am an attorney and the author of the legal thriller, The Kappa File. Oliver Sands is my pen name.
About my book
What does a mysterious file have to do with a multi-million dollar construction contract, the election of a county commissioner in Florida, and Attorney Mark Stone’s new client? Mark has weeks, if not days, to locate the file and find out. However, no one who has seen the content of the file has lived to tell about it.
The Kappa File is a fast-paced legal thriller set in Miami-Dade County, Florida, where the winner in a special election for County Commission casts a tie-breaking vote to award a multi-million dollar construction contract to a client’s competitor. However, Mark has some doubts about the circumstances of the contract award. Why did a commissioner abruptly resign to pave the way for the special election? If the new commissioner’s win was a true upset, why did his opponent already know that the commissioner would win the election in spite of the commissioner being far behind in the polls?
Mark knows that the answer may reside in a mysterious file, called the Kappa file, that his client’s former attorney was looking for. Knowing what’s in the file or who created it may solve the mystery. However, if made public, the content of the file may shake the political establishment in Florida and beyond. As a result, a killer is out there determined to stop Mark. He has already killed two people and Mark may be next.
Excerpt from the book:
"With one swerve, the driver of the van hit their car on the driver’s side. Horror seized Stephen and Gwendolyn as they saw the man with the crew cut smile at them before speeding away.
The impact caused the car to violently hit the wall of the bridge and break it, before going over the edge. As the car hung suspended in the air, there was darkness below. It was as if they were in a plane that was going to crash.
They knew that death waited for them. However, Stephen and Gwendolyn wished they were in a plane crash instead. Because in a plane crash, they might have had enough time to pray. It’s not that they were religious. It was just that they were not ready to die."
