About the Novel

Fluctuating world markets, underhanded political agendas, organized crime, social uprisings and terrorist attacks blur the line between right and wrong.
Sitting behind bars for murder is Miguel Mejia aka APOK. After two years in prison, this former military special operative turned police officer is visited by Carrie Warren. Taking the assignment this young zealous news reporter expects instant glory interviewing the ‘Killer Cop’.
Before Warren can release her story terrorists strike. The world tumbles from its already unsteady state into a society ripe for change. Underground organizations begin to emerge attempting to influence and wield power over the petrified.
Warrens finds herself trapped within a dark twisted society, losing her innocence and questioning what she once held to be true.
Mejia battles to overcome his past and strives to make things right. Conspirators sabotage his quest, forcing him to escape and evade a lynch mob hunting him while taking matters into his own two hands.

APOK Derailed - SYNOPSIS

After the largest unprovoked attack on a military base since Pearl Harbor, the United World Government is on crackdown. The global leader remains in a coma, and the population cowers beneath a merged global military and police force, and giant media conglomerates.

Meanwhile, Miguel Mejia, also known as APOK, languishes in the hospital after a rescue mission at a bomb site. There, his doctors try a radical new therapy they claim could change healthcare worldwide. But while his health returns, he finds himself forced to play the part of a pawn for powers far greater then he understands.

edge of my seat – great new author – Read it on the recommendation of a friend. Was skeptical at first- not a huge fan of action novels. Really surprised at how much I got into the book. The characters are really well developed. They are relatable and exciting at the same time. Would recommend this as a great summer read.

an excellent thriller! – Some friends of mine actually know Michael Walton. This is his first book, and boy I was impressed! There were many action packed scenes which made you never want to put the book down. An excellent thriller! I would recommend this to anyone!
