Prosecutorial Discretion, A Novel
A three-man team of vigilantes takes matters into their own hands following an incident of official misconduct. Their target: a prosecutor who looks the other way despite overwhelming evidence of criminal behavior. Their plot of revenge catapults him to higher office, but at a price.
From the inside flap:
Eugene Sullivan was the Prosecuting Attorney where the somewhat infamous videotaped incident involving the Highway Patrol officer had taken place. Sullivan had seen the videos and read pretty much all the news stories on the incident. He was glad the story was finally over. He felt bad for the motorist and embarrassed for the Highway Patrol.

Sullivan nodded his head in agreement, saying to Adam, “OK, you’re right. I have done wrong. I should have charged the officer with a crime, assault and battery, making false statements to police…”
“Attempted murder?” Adam chimed in.
“Attempted murder, yes, sir,” Sullivan said. “I should have thrown the book at him. As officers of the law, those men and women have a special responsibility to follow it, especially while in uniform.”
Adam leaned in and focused his eyes on Eugene’s, saying, “I wish it were that easy.”
Sullivan could see Jason holding his hand over the stockpot, looking at it intently, and adjusting the flame. He fought back the urge to speak, knowing he wasn’t supposed to; the cameras, the lit stove and Jason with his small pot were making Sullivan very, very curious, and not in a pleasant way…
