Not only is he a very good Writer, but according to BTB Publisher/Editor Scott Schaefer, “Dugoni is also a very nice, friendly and helpful Artist who knows how to craft a story.” Schaefer recently took one of Bob’s all-day writing seminars, and is currently working on a future best-seller, thanks to Bob’s advice.
Dugoni’s latest, The Conviction, has been called “a gripping new thriller about a father forced to take the law into his own hands to save his son.”
Here’s a synopsis:
Attorney David Sloane is desperate to get through to his troubled teenaged son, Jake. Still reeling from his mother’s brutal murder, the sixteen-year-old is spiraling out of control and Sloane has barely been able to keep him out of jail. When his old friend, detective Tom Molia, suggests taking their sons on a guys-only camping trip, Sloane seizes the opportunity to spend quality time with Jake while keeping him out of harm’s way.
The perfect getaway turns into a father’s nightmare, when Jake vandalizes a small town general store with Molia’s young son, T.J., as an unwitting accomplice. The boys are summarily tried, convicted, and sentenced to six months in the Fresh Start juvenile detention facility, a boot camp in California’s Gold Country wilderness.
As Sloane fights the conviction, he soon finds that county judge Earl Boykin bends the law to his will with an authority that seems to go unquestioned. Meanwhile, Jake and T.J. learn the hard way that Fresh Start has a very different purpose than rehabilitating troubled youths. For the first time, Sloane feels utterly paralyzed by the judicial system. With their legal options exhausted, Sloane and Molia will do anything to save their sons, even mount a daring rescue operation that could win the boys their freedom—or cost all of them their lives.
