Attorney Marvin Rogers has combined his knowledge of law and mineral rights into a fast-paced thriller of court intrigue and land embezzlement. The action moves from Civil War-era Bermuda to Alabama to New Orleans as the principal characters seek an indenture - a legal mortgage document - lost in a blockade-running attempted voyage in the 1860s. This document will prove ownership to an oil-rich tract of land if the lawyer searching for it is not killed before he can make his case. Skullduggery, romance, and colorful characters and settings abound as the story develops.
Marvin Rogers is an Assistant Attorney General assigned to the staff of the Alabama Oil and Gas Board. He lives in Tuscaloosa.
