Justice is as fast as a bullet… As I lie in bed with Amanda, ignoring another late-night call from my ex, a shot rings out in the New York night and a beautiful starlet dies outside the city's most popular nightclub. This is the kind of story I was born to chase—but I never dreamed this story began over a hundred years ago.… Suddenly another life is taken, the bullet fired from one of the deadliest guns ever made. Both victims are highly controversial, their murders more like public executions. My search leads me into the twisted world of The Boy—a world defined by a demented code of honor and shocking, long-buried secrets of the world's most infamous outlaw. When this assassin realizes I'm getting too close to the truth, uncovering the past could jeopardize everything I care about. Because in his world there's a fine line between good and evil, and the difference between innocence and guilt depends on who's holding the gun.…
David Levine and Mathew Bowker explore cultural and political trends organized around the conviction that the world we live in is a dangerous place to be, that it is dominated by hate and destruction, and that in it our primary task is to survive by carrying on a life-long struggle against hostile forces. Their method involves the analysis of public fantasies to reveal their hidden meanings. The central fantasy explored is the fantasy of a destroyed world, which appears most commonly in the form of post-apocalyptic and dystopian narratives. Their special concern in the book is with defenses against the painful consequences of the dominance of this fantasy in the inner world, especially defenses involving the use of guilt to assure that something can be done to repair the destroyed world. Topics explored include: the formation of internal fortresses and their projection into the world outside, forms of guilt including bystander guilt and survivor guilt, the loss of and search for home, and manic forms of reparation.

"The Guilty" is a critique of contemporary American society, its moral and ethical value systems, which are found to be wanting. The problems are evident: rampant divorce leading to the breakup of families, adultery, child abuse, alcohol abuse, and other drug abuses. However, the greatest wide spread basic evil of our time is greed, capable of spawning its own set of evil motivations. In "The Guilty," author Lester Key uses fiction to illustrate several of the most reprehensible behavior trends. He has also laid bare the racial prejudice that, unfortunately, remains in this country. But do not despair; in "The Guilty," Key believes he has found the solution to most of our social lack of moral and ethical values. About the Author Lester Key was born in September of 1932 in the picturesque little town of Burksville, Kentucky, on the banks of the Cumberland River. He now makes his home in Tucson Arizona.
