Pressbox (Press Release) -
Tucson, AZ June 21, 2009– Having dispatched his adulterous wife with a shotgun, Mike Renton fled to the Appalachian Trail in his efforts to escape.
Not a bad start for a debut novel provided you’re not the adulterous wife.
Tucson based British author Mark Sadler’s Blood on His Hands (Infinity Press, 2009) provides not only a hard-boiled look into the life of Oklahoma redneck Mike Renton, but also digs up the dirt on the (deceased) wife Bonnie and her lover, New Zealand private investigator Ian Walker.
Northern Georgia’s Appalachian Trail has long been rumored to have healing powers and in this tale of redemption and repentance Renton discovers for himself that more than just ‘trail magic’ exists on his journey of despair.
Blood on His Hands leads us from wanton desperation to the promise of a new life no matter the cost.
What makes the novel even more captivating is that it’s loosely based on Sadler’s personal experiences on the Appalachian Trail. Choosing to novelize his tale instead of competing with the likes of Bryson and Miller, Sadler has found a unique way to enthrall his audience with his ‘hiking into the wilderness’ yarn.
Sadler’s debut novel has already gathered high acclaim:
“I didn’t want to put the book down or for it to end.”-Tucson playwright Randy Ford
“Sadler has put enough real fabric in his characters to make them all too believable.” – Joe Gold, author of The Lamp Post
“A good summer read, it’s a book you can read relatively quickly and acquire a sense of gratification through escape.” Patrick Griffin, editor in chief of the Aztec Press
