When seasoned attorney Scott Winslow takes on a whistleblower case for fired energy company executive Kevin Walters, life-changing events are set in motion.
Scott pursues a lawsuit, alleging that his client was fired for complaining about unsafe conditions in the company’s mines. But as they dig deeper, Scott and his team discover blackmail, sanitized records and a corporate cover-up.
Soon, Scott and his family are threatened by someone who wants the case dismissed - at any cost. After Kevin's client is also targeted, they realize their only way out is to chase the evidence they need to prove the case at trial - and bring the person responsible to justice.
Praise for THE WHISTLEBLOWER ONSLAUGHT:
"An interesting and detailed account of how the legal system really works... excellent read" - Linda Adams
"Suspenseful, while at the same time allowing for the development of characters with believable and humorous dialogue, mixed with both tragedy and tenderness." - Amazon customer
My name is Scott Phillip Winslow. I live in Thousand Oaks, California, one of the many suburban areas within the Greater Los Angeles area, with my gorgeous wife, Lisa, and two amazing kids. I am a partner in a small law firm called Simmons and Winslow, in a practice that emphasizes employment litigation. My life has been pretty darn good, I must admit. At least until now—when changes in my world will soon come at me like a tsunami.
On Saturday morning, just nine days before Christmas, the chain of events that will change everything begins. I am perilously perched on the same rickety stepladder I had vowed to replace each year, for the past three years. I stand on the top step, which is plainly marked “do not stand,” in an effort to reach the ragged hooks on the eves of our overpriced, suburban home with a string of Christmas lights. I am sweating, even though it is only sixty-five degrees outside, in keeping with my tendency to work too fast and too hard during what should have been a relaxing Saturday morning.
