About the Book
Claiming Innocence is like no other book you’ve ever read. Filled with vivid, memorable characters, it teems with high adventure in times of brutality and duress, offset by strong bonds of love and loyalty. Mark becomes highly adaptable, driven by revenge through times of extreme violence, life on the run, even taking refuge with a tribe of cannibals. Ultimately a feel-good read, this is a page-turner, written with precision, sensitivity, and care.
