Publisher Comments:

Andrew Ash can read your mind. With very little effort, he can peek into your head and see your memories. And with only a small measure of guilt, he will steal your secrets. Andrew has used his special talent to make himself and his business partner very wealthy. But the money has come too easily, and the prospect of becoming wealthier still has lost its appeal.

David Martin is the host of a wildly popular late night talk show. He's also on trial for the brutal murder of his wife and two daughters. Despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, a star-struck jury is determined to set him free. Andrew, by virtue of his extraordinary ability, knows the truth and he's willing to risk everything to convince a sympathetic jury to look past the fame and see the monster.

Paul Trask, the greedy CEO of Micro-Delta Corporation, has stumbled onto Andrew's amazing talent. He quickly realizes Andrew's money-making potential and hatches a scheme to exploit him. Trask, driven by dreams of limitless wealth, will stop at nothing to secure Andrew's cooperation.

Andrew Ash and Ray Duncan are expert corporate merger and acquisitions specialists. They make millions of dollars a year because they have a secret. Andrew's a mind reader. He knows what the negotiator across the table will say before he says it.

In a field where precise and timely information is essential, Andrew's skills go far beyond mediums who speak in symbols and riddles and TV-show police psychics whose on-again/off again impressions provide facts that, while interesting, always seem to fall short of the clues detectives need most. Andrew knows everything. He can peep inside your head and read you like a book.

Everyone who has wondered what it's like to read minds will find vicarious pleasure peeping on Andrew as he wields his special information like a sword to back down greedy corporate executives, aggressive lawyers, and the hired guns who are attracted to large quantities of easy money. Paul Chandler is very good at what he does and his exciting novel shows what it's like.

Andrew's secret creates challenges. First, if the secret gets out, Andrew and Ray are out of business. Yet, in the regulated world of mergers and acquisitions, they're providing information that appears to have been illegally obtained. How does Andrew viably explain how he knows what he knows?

Men like Paul Trask, the powerful CEO of Micro-Delta Corporation, don't care where the information comes from as long as they get what they want and don't get caught. After a lucrative Micro-Delta business deal, Trask wants more, and he has a Rolodex full of unsavory characters who will ensure Andrew and Ray keep doing their magic.

But Andrew has other things on his mind. The popular talk-show host David Martin has been accused of murdering his wife and daughters. The prosecution has a good case, but in the media frenzy surrounding the trial, one thing is clear. The jury likes David Martin and will probably vote for acquittal.

Angered that such a monster might go free, Andrew steps into the court room and learns the truth. But once again, how he knows what he knows creates challenges. Can he help put a murderer behind bars without giving away his secret? More importantly, if he accurately describes the graphic details of a murder nobody could have seen, won't he be accused of committing the crime?

Paul Chandler's well-written "Peeper" delivers savvy good guys and savvy bad guys fighting for survival in a high-stakes battle with no brakes on it. Even Andrew doesn't know in advance how it's going to end up. So, chances are you won't have a clue either. If you like action and suspense, it's better that way.
