An assistant U.S. attorney is found dead an hour north of Los Angeles, with a mysterious note next to her body stating, “Find Des Cook, University of Georgia. He has the answers.”

Desmond Cook, is soon visited by the FBI and questioned regarding the murder. He has no clue what is going on. A deadly chase ensues as the killer starts sending Des a series of riddles to get to designated locations. Will Des beat the clock and unpack the mystery?

Find out in the suspense thriller, “The Legal Killer,” by Elliot Mason.

The book was inspired by an article Mason read about an innocent Alaskan senator who was prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice.

“I asked myself how it was possible that they could knowingly violate the law in such a blatant manner, destroy a person’s life and not be held accountable,” Mason said. “What I learned is that the DOJ and all of its entities, in my opinion, operate more like the mafia than a noble profession and they represent one of the greatest threats to the citizenry.”

It was important for Mason to write a book that addresses the topic of justice reform.

“My goal was to educate people about what I see as an extremely corrupt and dangerous governmental body through a story that would keep them entertained while encouraging questions,” Mason said.

“The Legal Killer” will be enjoyed by readers interested in the social justice system as well as those who like a good mystery.

“My intended audience is basically any socially aware person who would like to see our justice system do what it was supposed to do, and not what it has become,” Mason said.

It’s the author’s hope that his book is informative for readers.

“I hope my readers come to a full understanding of the federal justice system and the immense power it possesses,” Mason said. “I also hope people will gain a true understanding of the private prison industry and everything it entails, which in my opinion, has more in common with a human trafficking operation than a justice system.”

In addition to being an author, Mason is a freelance writer. He is based in Southern California. To learn more about the author and his work, visit
