WATERMARK by Michael Hewes

A thrilling tale of betrayal, discovery, and conviction set against the worst natural disaster to ever strike the United States, the captivating story of one man's struggle to redeem everything he has lost.

In the days after Hurricane Katrina, Mississippi attorney and author Michael Hewes returned to his former home only to find it destroyed. Among the wreckage was a binder containing photos of an intimate nature.

This discovery got Hewes thinking about what would’ve happened if he had discovered something that wasn’t just embarrassing, but that had actual legal or criminal implications.

He turned that idea into Watermark, an intelligent, fast-paced legal thriller that will delight fans of Grisham, Turow, and Baldacci.

Back coverWhen Matt Frazier returns to his home in Gulfport in the wake of the largest hurricane to ever come ashore in the United States, he expects a disaster - and finds a catastrophe. 

But it’s not what the storm took away that gets Matt’s attention – it’s what it left behind.  Deep in the debris under what remains of his house, something has washed up that makes Matt the central target in a deadly conspiracy involving some very high-profile players. 

Not knowing who to trust, Matt must turn to his eccentric neighbor, his high school buddy, and ultimately his estranged wife to try and help him stay one step ahead – and alive – long enough to bring some order back into his life.
