Published in October of 2012 by Buzz Books USA as a prequel to DISTORTION, “Retribution” was a short caper about Adele Proust early in her relationship with Jack Thomas.
By Amazon reviewer, J. Luton, “This short story is a “prequel” to the must-read novel, “Distortion.” We get a sweet little taste of Adele … her character … her creativity … and her dashing activist boyfriend. Add in a diamond heist, a dangerous rappelling caper and the compelling cause of ‘blood diamonds,’ and you’ve got a great short story and fun read!”
Plot: Adele Proust is a private person who prefers to explore her world through art and shares her opinions and fights her battles with a paintbrush and canvas. Jack Thomas lives and breathes his activism and has become a lightning rod for controversy—and police attention. When someone steals a priceless blood diamond that Jack targeted in a protest, can Adele trust that his involvement isn’t more than coincidence? As Adele does things she never imagined to defend Jack, she learns to trust his activist friend, Marvin Welsh.
