DARK MONEY is a thriller, a mystery and an expose’ of the corruption of money in politics.
Jackson Bryant, the millionaire plaintiff lawyer who turned to pro bono work in Dead Peasants, is caught up in the collision of money and politics when he receives a call from his old army buddy, Walt Frazier. Walt needs his assistance in evaluating security for Texas Governor Rob Lardner at a Halloween costume fundraiser thrown by one of the nation’s richest Republican billionaires at his mansion in Fort Worth.
Miriam Van Zandt is the best marksman among The Alamo Defenders, an anti-government militia group in West Texas. She attends the fund raiser dressed as a cat burglar—wounds the governor and murders the host’s brother, another Republican billionaire. She is shot in the leg but manages to escape.
Jack is appointed special prosecutor and must call on the Texas DPS SWAT team to track Van Zandt and attack the Alamo Defenders’ compound in a lonely part of West Texas. Van Zandt’s father, founder of the Defenders, is killed in the attack and Miriam is left in a coma. The authorities declare victory and close the case—but Jack knows better. The person behind the Halloween massacre has yet to be caught. When Walt and the protective detail are sued by the fund raiser host and the widow of the dead man, Jack follows the dark money of political contributions from the Cayman Islands to Washington to Eastern Europe, New York and New Orleans to track the real killer and absolve his friend and the Protective Detail of responsibility for the massacre.

Larry D. Thompson
Larry D. Thompson was first a trial lawyer. He tried more than 300 cases throughout Texas, winning in excess of 95% of them. When his youngest son graduated from college, he decided to write his first novel. Since his mother was an English teacher and his brother, Thomas Thompson, had been a best-selling author, it seemed the natural thing to do.
Larry writes about what he knows best…lawyers, courtrooms and trials. The legal thriller is his genre. DARK MONEY is his fifth story and the second in the Jack Bryant series.
Larry and his wife, Vicki, call Houston home and spend their summers on a mountain top in Vail, Colorado. He has two daughters, two sons and four grandchildren.

Book Two of the Jack Bryant Thriller series..  Being a retired personal injury lawyer and very wealthy, he becomes involved in investigating a shooting.   It happened during the Republican, campaign fundraiser.

The fundraiser is a costume affair and the the people are urged to "carry".  The security people are not in favor of this. 

A well written book that will have you turning the pages quickly. Bryant fights against corruption.He's out for the guy that isn't known or doesn't have much.  He's out to get the corrupt and those that go after the little guy for their own illegal gains.So Jack is going after the one who attempted to kill the Governor and leaves a billionaire dead. He's also wanting to find where the money to pay for this assassination attempt came from.The book is not only a mystery, detective story but it shows light on the political corruption in America. Corruption and dark dealings eventually come to light. It may take a while but they will come out.  There is so much corruption in this day and age, not just in politics but every where. The author wrote a story that is full of twists and turns.  It's a story of how complex and dark life can be.  Lots of excitement, suspense,and mystery.It's set at a fast pace but not so fast that you can't keep up with it.  Just right. If you like detective stories that have that added punch, you'll love this one.

I received a complimentary copy of DARK MONEY from the author and PUYB in exchange for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
