  • “Justice for All” is a story about a young woman, Madison, who lives in a small town and dreams of escaping the small town life, if only for a little while. She agrees to go on a road trip with a friend she met over the Internet three years before. Alexander and Madison begin to make plans, and then she starts to have strange and, what she fears are, prophetic dreams of bad things to come. Even though, she is scared and anxious she decides to go with Alexander, since this may be her only chance to travel. Their expedition goes without any problems, until the unthinkable happens in Arizona. Their vehicle breaks down forcing Alexander and Madison to walk in the middle of the night to a gas station they seen about twenty miles back. It takes all night, but they make it, only to realize the gas station is closed. They sit down and wait, hoping for someone to come by. Madison eventually falls asleep. When she wakes up, she sees several men standing around her and that Alexander is gone. The guys shove Madison into a vehicle, where she sees Alexander, beaten nearly to death. The men take her and Alexander to a basement, where they assault her and continue beating the life out of Alexander. Ryan, the leader, has a little brother named Qwen. Qwen has grown tired of Ryan and his evil games. Qwen does his best to help Alexander and Madison escape Ryan and his lackeys’ wrath. Is Alexander able to survive the cruel beatings he has received? Does Madison fall in love with her hero, Qwen, only to lose him? And is she able to make it home alive? Find out more by purchasing the book. It is available on the Kindle and in paperback.
