Ten years ago, Shelby Knight turned in his badge and put his gun under glass. Since that time there hasn't been a day he hasn't replayed the shooting death of Aiden Holloway in his mind. When a man kills another man, it changes him forever on the inside. While lost and adrift amid the pieces of his unreconstructed life, Knight is brought in for questioning regarding a recent murder. His own gun has been used in a cold-blooded killing-the ballistics match, he has no alibi, and the police brotherhood of which he was once a well-loved and respected member is now out to nail him to the wall. Long after the press has dubbed him "The Black Knight," Shelby takes the fight for his life to the streets in the persona of a self-styled vigilante complete with armor, shield and sword. Only from behind the protection and anonymity of a medieval steel shell can he discover the truth before the killer strikes yet again. But what are these disturbing dreams where he's killing people he's never met? Is his only friend the killer? Is it a conspiracy? Or is there a hidden, darker half of himself that takes pleasure in bloodshed? About the Author: George Wier lives in Austin, Texas, with his lovely wife, Sallie.
