Blurb from The Killdeer Connection

David Thompson is a lawyer on the run for a murder he didn’t commit. The FBI wants him dead or alive. The real killer wants him dead. His family wants him back. Only the killdeer—a bird—can save him. But it can kill him too. Thompson must unravel the mystery before a terror plot blows up the country and the feds slip him the lethal injection needle. Greed. Conspiracy. Big Oil. Family Secrets. Deception. Prejudice. Courtroom Drama. Buckle-up a riveting thrill ride through the darkest stretches of North Dakota.


He's often called "Tom Sawyer," but he is not the Mark Twain character, though he did marry Becky Thatcher and his best friend is Huck Finn. He lives in a nice home with his family near the Mohawk
