Redmond Herring's second mystery novel... Living in a Lie... emphasizes how unfair the judicial courts can be when the criminal has the financial means to hire the best (not necessarily), the most influential attorneys that money can buy. Criminals who are found quilty in one court most likely will not be held accountable in another. History has proven financial criminals repeat their crimes without completing their punishment or paying restitution.

Innocent victims are chastised by the courts for being gullible and naive. I wrote this book to stress why 'a good deal' is probably a bad deal for the victims.


Darrel Emerson, Sara Blake's lifelong friend, begins his quest for fame, fortune and great wealth as an investment banker. His venture, The Red Rover Project, nets him over a million dollars as wealthy investors buy into his scheme, a gold extracting machine.

Emerson leverages his profits by building an investment empire that triumphs well-established Wall Street firms. Throughout the 1980's his firm, Redstone Venture Capital, becomes the largest and most trusted investment bank in North America appealing to wealthy moguls throughout the world.

Enventually, the feds discover the pyramid schemes and Emerson must avoid prosecution by creating his biggest scam, ever. Escape from the government and his angry creditors. The investment con man proves to be very cunning in his getaway, leaving all his debt with Sara, as she must sorts out the mess in the court system.

Who will prevail? Only the reader will find out.
