Is it murder if you’re protecting your daughter? The day begins like any other, a typical Monday morning. Jeff Blake leaves for work as usual to the investment brokerage firm of Avian Financial Services in downtown Fairfield, where he works as an investment advisor. Unfortunately, the arrival of a new client changes everything. Mr. Clint Parkens, Director of Child Protective Services for Grover County, threatens to take Jeff’s three-year-old daughter Ashley into protective custody unless he provides an insider trading advantage for Parkens’ investments.

Over My Dead Body by Bruce A. Borders is a fast paced, dramatic and edgy story about how one can abuse the power they have in a legal system which is supposed to be used for the good of the people. Borders’ writing style is clear cut, making the narrative highly readable and engaging from the beginning until the end. Readers would find it easy to immerse themselves in the story. It’s also effortless to relate to the characters as they are well developed. I found it hard to stop reading as I really wanted to know what would happen next.

Over My Dead Body is a parent’s worst nightmare. The fact that it could happen in the real world, since greed and corruption can make anyone do the unthinkable, is simply frightening. The premise of the story is a valid, thought provoking, although daunting view of what type of crime can happen (perhaps, it already did) in the legal system. On the whole, this is a solid read.
