We are sure to be grabbed by the seat of our global pants in Big: Crisis, Blackmail, Corruption and Murder Amid Global Upheaval set around the events of the Arab Spring, with oil deals and custody battles going awry. Join international lawyer and author Greyson Bryan in conversation with veteran writer, producer and director Richard Kletter as they discuss this timely sequel to Big: Beginnings, part two of his planned trilogy, and how aspects of Bryan’s more intriguing clients may even show up in his new novel, albeit in composite form. Reading, discussion & signing.
No sooner does Duncan Luke become the new head of the Bingham Intelligence Group when his personal life is thrown into turmoil by threats from his estranged wife to move to San Francisco with his beloved son, Sam, and his business intelligence skills are challenged by the corruption he sees lurking in a West African oil deal – a deal that is essential to the survival of his client and Duncan’s ability to fight for shared custody. London, Paris, a tiny West African island nation and the violent beginnings of the Arab Spring take center stage as Duncan must once again set out on a trek around the globe while his relationship with Sam hangs in the balance.
