QUINTER: An Adventure Story with a Heart.
Thomas March Quinter, 44, is a Cleveland trial lawyer with a love for the law and a thirst for justice. Not long after leaving the safety of one of Cleveland’s white shoe law firms to set up his own shop, he’s approached by a former college classmate, David Bordman, an increasingly mysterious figure whose background since their days at Princeton includes the Navy, the CIA, and the U.S. State Department.
Now Bordman offers Quinter a job complete with international travel, adventure and generous pay. The offer extends to Jennifer Milleux, Quinter’s secretary, as well. Soon the pair embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.
The picture darkens quickly as events spin out of control. In the United Sates, offices are ransacked, murder strikes, and clear Middle-Eastern connections are made apparent. Internationally, attacks and abductions are standard fare as Quinter and Jennifer pool their efforts to resolve increasingly complicated and threatening questions.
Their quest becomes even more difficult as Quinter and Jennifer find themselves labeled suspected killers, and become the objects of a nationwide manhunt.
Will they be able to clear their names while simultaneously discovering the reasons for the violence surrounding them? Quinter is determined to do so. His first task, however, will be to keep Jennifer and himself alive.
Ren Keller attended Princeton University and obtained his JD from the University of Michigan. A practicing trial lawyer in Cleveland for over 40 years, he continues to live in Chagrin Falls, Ohio with his wife, Alice. This is his first novel.
