Redemption has 17 chapters and an epilogue. I'll post a chapter a day (note: the chapters are pretty short). It's a Washington DC story and so there are politics involved, but there's also sex and some violence and what could be more American than that?
Anyway, enjoy. It's already up on Lulu, http://www.lulu.com/shop/joe-bondi-beach/redemption/ebook/product-22180927.html (and soon, one hopes, on Amazon and iBooks Store, etc.), if you want to purchase the whole thing. Please hurry up and buy it before it becomes a free download when I finish posting here, OK?
