The nightmare began in July of 2009. This story is about southern Kentucky, where the rules are sometimes made up on the fly. Mark Casey has been arrested for crimes he did not commit. Now the battle begins between Mark and the good ‘ol boys of Kentucky. The odyssey that began for Mark in the book Pinned – A Kentucky True Crime, continues now in Stains on the Gavel. This is the second novel of the ‘Blue Grass’ Series, and details what some might call, Kentucky Injustice. This particular case is a big deal for a little rural town where nothing much ever happens. The Prosecution has virtually no evidence against Mark and the case is built on speculation. It’s looking like an acquittal is the logical outcome. But in southern Kentucky, money always carries a lot of weight. Mark is about to find that even in the bible-belt, not everybody lives by ‘The Golden Rule’ and sometimes personal gain can outweigh the obvious call for justice.
