When Evan Maitland found out that Thomas Hicks had killed two men, he doubled his fee. Fifty thousand dollars to bring the bail jumper back to Chicago for trial. Thomas Hicks killed two men in self-defense. But for a black man with a record, he doesn't believe justice is going to prevail. He jumps bail, becomes a fugitive, and flees to western Kansas. He isn't there long before he realizes he would have been safer in a Chicago jail.Available only in Core 7.Hunt, James Patrick is the author of 'Maitland under Siege', published 2006 under ISBN 9780786286218 and ISBN 0786286210.
