I had trouble putting down The Last American Martyr by Tom Winton, too curious to see what happened next.

Thomas Soles, an unemployed doorman, writes a book about the effect of Corporate America’s greed  on ordinary families and then win’s a Nobel Prize for it. As a result, life takes a “harrowing turn” for him. He and his wife flee, hoping to find a safe place to live. Always vigilant, there is no peace.

The book is about faithfulness to one’s convictions and to one’s love, friendship and its many forms, and a sad commentary on American life and how easily a hero can fall from grace in the public’s eye.
