A Political Fable.

Washington, D.C. - Behind the curtain of secrecy.

Carefully concealed from the public is the greed, avrice and power-grabbing that motivates politicians.

In brief: Politics as usual

Tommy Sawyer, the man one critic hailed as "Holden Caulfield with a political science degree," is back. Elected to serve out the term of a dead Congressman, Tommy is chosen to oversee the impeachment of the Chief Justice of the United States. Along the way, he encounters the entrenched greed and corruption in Washington that's now undermining life in the rest of the country. Murder, terrorism and unrestrained "politics" are the order of the day, and the United States teeters on civil war. Only a single, charismatic man stands between the country and chaos. Juvenal's Lament, set in the very near future, is a cautionary tale about the misuse of power and the widening chasm between Washington and the public.

"Juvenal's Lament neatly juxtaposes the personal ambitions and life of Tommy Sawyer against a crescendo of legal and political events that could lead to either all-out disaster or new beginnings; all resting firmly on . . . how power is ultimately acquired and wielded." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

A 1966 graduate of Chapel Hill High School, he received his B.A. from the University of Kentucky in 1970, and his J.D. from the same institution in 1973. He has practiced law for the past forty years, primarily in Atlanta, Georgia, and now resides in Georgetown, South Carolina.

He and his wife Barbie have two sons, one a lawyer in Salt Lake City, the other a Navy helicopter pilot currently stationed in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Mr. Thompson plays an occasional round of bad golf, and he and his bride can sometimes be found having a late-afternoon cocktail or glass of wine at the beach.
