Love or Death. Choose Wisely.

A homicidal vigilante is on the loose.  He’s determined to end homelessness in Santa Monica, California. He secretly records and makes examples of those who ignore or abuse the impoverished. When his footage and motive make the news, citizens panic, engaging in flagrant displays of public brotherly love as the only way to feel safe outside their homes.

Businesses flaunt perks for the homeless to avoid being targeted. In an unprecedented law-enforcement response, the city becomes a virtual armed encampment.

Mark Denny, a local IT guy, is trapped in the vigilante’s scheme and must choose whether to maintain the public’s fear-fueled generosity, or end the terror and face his own horrific fate.

Dire Means is a taut thriller that brings you page after page of nail-biting tension laced with moral quandaries.
