Enter the murky world of politics and law enforcement in Richard Pundt’s adrenaline-filled Shadows. Based on true events from the author’s own life, readers will be plunged into a trusted system that is more corrupt than anyone could imagine. A. T. Van Doren’s world is turned upside down with the arrival of two FBI agents at his front door. An attorney and former FBI agent himself, Van Doren is blindsided by his arrest on federal charges that he never committed. The situation takes an even stranger turn when his supposed accomplices turn out to be individuals he has never even met. Determined to clear his name at any cost, Van Doren launches his own private investigation into the events leading up to his arrest. What he unveils is almost beyond belief: the indictment appears to have been set in motion by Van Doren’s political enemies who are seeking revenge. As his investigation continues, Van Doren stumbles across an underground movement within the FBI that has implemented a system dubbed the “proactive approach” in which FBI targets are coupled with innocent citizens for indictment. After the subsequent arrests, corrupt operatives in the Department of Justice and the FBI attempt to force the innocent arrestees to plea bargain and fabricate testimony against the real targets. Van Doren’s discovery of a twisted justice system puts him in even more danger as his investigation exposes these radical operatives who are attempting to rebuild the Department of Justice and the FBI into political enterprises that are completely alienated from the concepts of criminal justice and fair trials. Fans of political intrigue will welcome this engaging addition to the genre as they follow Van Doren’s desperate attempts to expose a flawed and dangerous system.
