Sneak Peek: Beyond Guilty by Richard Brawer

Today we have a sneak peek from author Richard Brawer’s suspense/thriller, Beyond Guilty:

Beyond GuiltyAt fifteen, Eileen Robinson lives in an ideal, middle class African-American family in Houston, Texas. When her father is murdered, an innocent victim in a drive by shooting, her sheltered life spirals downward into gloom. Her once stay-at-home mother is forced to go to work cleaning offices at night. Instead of enjoying her carefree teenage years hanging with her friends, Eileen is relegated to babysitting her two younger sisters. One night she sneaks out on them. Trying to cook something, they die in a fire. Tormented and wanting to kill herself, Eileen runs away from home. Befriended by a drug dealer, she moves in with him. At twenty-one she is a single mother of two, falsely convicted of killing a state senator’s son. At thirty-two she is executed. Or is she?

Beyond Guilty is available in print and for Kindle at, and in print and for Nook at Barnes & Noble. Continue reading “Sneak Peek: Beyond Guilty by Richard Brawer”
