It's the middle of the night and the parking lots outside Wilson Field are empty when a confrontation between an Atlanta cop and baseball's home run king turns deadly. Is it a case of murder or is it self-defense?It should be a simple question based upon the facts of the case. But when money, politics and power are involved, the pursuit of justice can sometimes have very little do with the truth._____________________________________________________________Hallways in the Night is a classic legal thriller in which the volatile elements of politics, power and race will collide to create a story that will make you want to keep turning the pages until the very end. The story begins when a veteran cop, Dave Mackno, makes a split-second decision to leave his stake-out in pursuit of a speeding Porsche. Thinking he's probably in pursuit of a coked-up stockbroker speeding home after a long night in the city, Dave is stunned when it turns out the car is being driven by Remo Centrella, baseball's home run king.He's even more surprised when he sees a blonde woman struggling to get out his car. When Dave sees the woman is sporting a freshly minted black eye, he realizes the stakes have just been raised a lot higher than expected. For Remo Centrella, it's the worst case scenario. He's half-drunk and in a situation that will destroy the public image he has spent his entire career trying to create. The consequences of an arrest are too much for him to accept. He tries to escape but can't when Dave shoots out his left front tire. As the woman jumps out of his car and flees into the night, Dave's attempted arrest of Remo becomes a fight for his life.By the time the East Coast of the United States' wakes up, the media is already reporting that Remo Centrella has been involved in a shooting outside Wilson Field. Nobody knows exactly what happened. Initial reports indicate that Remo may have been the victim of a potential car-jacking. But those reports are quickly corrected when APD announced Remo has been shot by a cop.A page-turner from start to finish, Hallways in the Night is a legal thriller that will take you on a journey from inner city Atlanta into the backrooms where deals are made by the most powerful people in the City as justice is pursued in a case where no one can afford to tell the "truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."
