Eade, an up and coming author in the legal thriller and courtroom drama genre, has been described by critics as "One of our strongest thriller writers on the scene and the fact that he draws his stories from the contemporary philosophical landscape is very much to his credit." He is often compared to John Grisham, whom many regard as the master of the legal thriller.

Says Eade of the comparisons, "Readers compare me in style to John Grisham and, although there are some similarities, because John also likes to cra

Reintroducing "The Lincoln Lawyer," courtesy of John Grisham?

Remember The Lincoln Lawyer? That legal thriller by Michael Connelly which introduced unconventional lawyer Mickey Haller? He’s back! And apparently because of John Grisham.

Grisham’s Rogue Lawyer is Sebastian Rudd, who works out of a van instead of an office, has a driver/bodyguard instead of a receptionist, an ex-wife and a kid, a problem with alcohol and with authority and the occasional brush u Read more of this blog post »

Rise Up and Salute the Sun by Suzy Kassem
“God created every man to be free. The ability to choose whether to live free or enslaved, right or wrong, happy or in fear is something called freewill. Every man was born with freewill. Some people use it, and some people use any excuse not to. Nobody can turn you into a slave unless you allow them. Nobody can make you afraid of anything, unless you allow them. Nobody can tell you to do something wrong, unless you allow them. God never created you to be a slave, man did. God never created division or set up any borders between brothers, man did. God never told you hurt or kill another, man did. And in the end, when God asks you: "Who told you to kill one of my children?"

And you tell him, "My leader."

He will then ask you, "And are THEY your GOD?”

“Society tends to stick labels on everything and everyone. The label that is given to you will stick with you for a lifetime.”
Kenneth Eade, An Involuntary Spy

“Sometimes one man must fight for what he feels is right, even against the majority. Something that is wrong does not change to right just because the majority approves it, ignores it, or the government says it is right. It is still wrong.”
Kenneth Eade, An Involuntary Spy

“Genetic engineering was messy. To force a sequence of foreign DNA into a plant, you couldn’t just snip the desired gene from the bacteria and sew it on to the plant’s DNA sequence like an old woman working on a quilt.”
