A synopsis: An outrageous innuendo... but true !
A ‘true to life’ story, every parent should read before exposing their children to the perils in society. Naive teenagers can be, will be, taken hostage by an unsavory culture that will exploit their vulnerabilities. This mystery novel is not without controversy. The narrative is authentic, threatening and ardent. The author traces the life story of how the main character, Curtis Vincent Harrison, struggles with his self-imposed demons.

For small town kids, adolescence can be idyllic, but some suffer in a disingenuous world of lies and deceit. A life of deception usually leads to a life of pain and sorrow. As the main character becomes an adult, he is free to travel the country seeking absolution, trying to resurrect his faith; darkness keeps him engaged in a life of despair.

In the late 1970‘s, the FBI, Justice Department, and the State of Minnesota try to indict Curt for felony activities that involve the Boy Scouts of America and the Catholic Church. Twenty years later, America and the World begin to take notice to the sexual outbreak of homosexuality. Redmond Herring intervenes on behalf of the family, hoping to enroll their son in Conversion Therapy.

This mystery novel is linked to one faithful Baptist family that must face the reality of contemporary life. If the family had known of the dangers lurking in America’s most trusted organizations, their innocent son could have avoided a life of shame, deceit and self-indulgence.

The US Court System has incarcerated hundreds of deviant men (and some women) in mental institutions, labeling these ‘victims of sexual abuse’ as sexual predators for their entire life. In the 1960s psychologist developed a theory for abnormal behavior called Post-traumatic stress disorder, (PTSD).

Sakatah Man explores the possibilities of converting these prisoners of homosexuality, restoring their life’s to some sense of normality, removing the threat of abuse from society. Will Redmond Herring ‘turn the tide’ of bigotry by challenging the judicial system.

Curtis Vincent Harrison may become the prevailing experiment.
