Steven W. Johnsonabout this book: Allison King finds herself embroiled in a fight for her life when she decides to run for a vacant seat on the town council of Charleston, Nevada. Does she have what it takes to overcome the political corruption, intrigue, and murder that permeates the town and still save the adult video empire she created in Los Angeles?
Inspiration? The inability to modify the corrupt political climate in my town. Primary Readers? Those who enjoy a good murder mystery, political thriller, and well written story. Title? Think about it. Political corruption is one of the least prosecuted crimes in America. Hardest part? Avoiding situations too close to real life. I had an assistant district attorney buy the book to see who I was libeling. She said she could identify all of the characters but I had not libeled anyone specific. What did I learn? That I could do it. 110,000 words is a daunting task when you first look at the project.
I bet no one is able to figure out the final twist without reading the last chapter.

Not Much of a Crime
a comment by Steven W. JohnsonAs the author, I was surprised to make the first round cut in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest with Not Much of a Crime. Imagine my thrill when I became a quarter finalist! I sincerely hope my book keeps you on the edge of your chairs (or awake at night) as you try to figure out "who done it".
