"Moving at the speed of light, the electric impulses delivered their message to his conscious brain as the hammer fell on the revolver. The blinding white light that followed extinguished all that was Clayton Marswell."

The string of bloody bodies scattered across the Georgia landscape seem to have nothing in common. From different neighborhoods, different levels of society and with different political philosophies, the victims have only one connection. They are all on a list. The question is, why and whose list is it?

Brought together by the list, "The Hunters" unite, once again, and work to unravel the conspiracy behind the murders. George Mackey, Sharon Price and Bob Shaklee are joined by Andrew Barnes and Perry Boyd of the elite Atlanta Homicide Division in a hunt that takes them from inner-city Atlanta to the swamps of south Georgia.

The story's gripping conclusion explodes in the revelation of the conspirators' identities. The one task left for the Hunters is to confront and take down the killing team, if they can.

Sanctioned Murder is a story that deals with the evolution of a political elite in the United States. It explores the possibility that a popular, peaceful uprising of voters determines that the best way to remove corruption and patronage from the political system is to use the ballot box to remove the political aristocracy that controls the system. If your source of power, influence and wealth were about to be taken from you, what would you do to protect it? In the end the story is a murder mystery / thriller that along the way raises a number of questions about our system and our departure from a government of citizen public servants to one of professional politicians. It raises those questions even if it does not provide the answers.
