About the Book

What would you do if you were the only witness to a mysterious tragedy, and no one believed you? Where could you turn when everyone around mocked you? How far would you go to solve the mystery and find personal vindication?

That’s the dilemma facing Sean Coleman, the protagonist of From a Dead Sleep. Readers will be transported to the dark woods outside the secluded mountain town of Winston, Colorado, where the profoundly flawed Coleman stumbles upon and witnesses a man’s unusual suicide. All traces of the tragic death, including the body, are washed away by a rushing river. The story sounds like the plot of one of the crime dramas Coleman is so fond of watching on TV, but it quickly turns personal. Coleman is a loner, a deeply flawed man whose credibility in Winston is shot, and everyone thinks his tale is just a figment of his overactive imagination. In an attempt to restore his reputation and solve the mystery of the stranger’s death, Coleman embarks upon an investigation that will lead him across the country. Will he be able to identify the man and get to the bottom of this mystery? Will be able to find the confidence and personal redemption he desires? Or will he learn that some mysteries should be left uncovered?

From a Dead Sleep is now available in paperback through BQB's online store (, Amazon (, Barnes & Noble (, and bookstores throughout the country. It is also available as an eBook through Kindle (, Nook (, Kobo (, and OverDrive for $7.99.
