Gabriel Boutros Day 5

Face/Mask
















Montreal in the year 2039. Like all major cities, the air is poisonous. On the other side of the planet, the war on terror rages with no end in sight. The Canadian government is run by a militaristic administration that was 
installed on the basis of a horrific lie. Civil rights have been curtailed and the justice system is rife with corruption. In the middle of this decaying world lives Allen Janus: husband, father, bureaucrat and backstabber. In a moment of petty vindictiveness he will betray the people who love him, setting the lives of everyone in his family on a tragic course. 
From the author of The Guilty comes a story about how lies can entrap both the deceiver and the deceived.


The Guilty

Robert Bratt is a lawyer who has always done whatever it took to win his cases. After twenty years of defending the most hardened criminals, many of whom he knew to be guilty, the only thing he can no longer do is look at himself in the mirror. 
Loosely based on a multiple-murder that shocked Montreal in the 1990s, this riveting story pulls the reader into the inner workings of a murder trial, and reveals what one lawyer must do when he has to defend "The Guilty."

If I Should Die Before I Wake
In this novella, or very long short story, a mild-mannered mob accountant goes on the run after he embezzles millions of dollars from his boss. He is chased across the country by a hired killer, and is forced to hide out in cheap, out of the way motels. He dreads the day the gunman will catch up with him, aware that he doesn't have the strength to defend himself. Except when he sleeps, at which time he dreams that he is the fearless hunter, and no longer the cowering prey. As the real killer closes in on him, the line between his dreams and his waking life become blurred.
