Debut author Pascal Marco visits to celebrate the launch of Identity: Lost, his new crime thriller. It's July, 1975 and an overworked Chicago police force receives a call that an 85-year-old white man has been attacked by a gang of black youths on the lakefront in Burnham Park. Amid public outrage, the police are commanded to find the killers fast. Fortunately for them, twelve-year-old James Overstreet steps forward and identifies five of the six assailants. However, detectives and county attorneys bungle the case, leaving the judge no choice but to release the accused. Now young James is in jeopardy, forcing the entire Overstreet family into witness protection in Arizona. Thirty years later, the stoic young man has grown to become Maricopa County's most feared prosecutor. But his life is about to be turned upside down when his past comes back to haunt him. Brad Thor, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Athena Project, raves, "Identity: Lost is 'Exhibit A' on the docket of this year's hottest legal thrillers."
