Counting the Bodies

Revell Cornell

A tale of good and bad guys, robbery, murder, an angry young men fighting back at corruption, with the help of a guy with problems.


Bridge Engineer, Joe Washington, is broke. His take home pay is barely keeping him and his young family above the bread line. He commits an ingenious burglary of an insurance office - but why isn't the burglary reported to the police? Could it have something to do with the ledger Joe took from the safe, along with the eighty thousand dollars? Joe then discovers the initials refer to crooked politicians who are trying to push another 'must have' insurance scheme through Congress. They are taking kick-backs. It is after people connected to the insurance company are murdered, and his friends inform him that a mean character is looking for him, that Joe goes on the run. To compound matters, Joe discovers that the insurance company is partly funded by the Mob. His nervousness turns to fear, and he seeks the help of a mysterious stranger from his past. But first he has to find the kindly stranger, and Texas is a big state, and time is running out, and... and.... Joe would willingly hand back every cent to get his life back - if only he could.

Brilliant! Love it! Right up my street. Straight onto my bookshelf. Hope you can keep up the standard. I had intended downloading something onto my Sony Reader later on tonight, but, no thank you, this'll do fine. Really trying hard to find a fault, but... view book

Hello Su dan. Are you from the Sudan? Anyway, really really enjoyed chapter one. Well written. However, with the greatest respect, I feel you lost your 'tightness', and attention to detail in chapter two. The basics of writing seem to have been forgotten. I.E. short sharp sentences to create tension... view book

Savannah Fire. Sorry, Al, maybe you've asked the wrong person to comment on your work. With respect, it has not hooked me after three chapters. Please bear in mind that I love the deep south of the U.S.A and any story remotely related to the area has a ten point start before I open the cover. Howe... view book
