Government secrets. Biological weapons. Human subjects.

In a top-secret complex surrounded by miles of Texas scrubland, the United States military is working on a new form of germ warfare. Taken from homeless shelters and prisons, the subjects, discarded men and women of America, serve their country as unwilling lab rats.

Ramon Willis didn’t commit the murder that put him on death row. But he’s guilty of something worse - surviving the virus and escaping his captors. Knowing he can’t take on the corrupt system alone, there’s only one person he can turn to - Lena Dryer, the reporter who covered his case and watched him die.

With assassins dogging their trail and all their options for survival closed off, they must risk everything to bring this conspiracy to light. But time is short. When an extreme faction in the government pushes forward with the next phase of their plan, the fate of the nation hangs in the balance.

Profile of Ramon Willis, Protagonist of Living Proof
Ramon Willis, a wrongfully convicted death row inmate, is about to die. At thirty-two years old, he has spent nearly a third of his life in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. His time on death row is now nearing an end. He’s exhausted all his appeals and there is no chance of a pardon. His execution is scheduled for the next week, but he has accepted his fate and is prepared to die. Ramon had changed a lot since being sent to prison. He was older of course, and much stronger and healthier looking, despite the starch and fat that served as a diet here. He worked out constantly in his jail cell to pass the time and improve his body. But if someone had known him before they would surely recognize him now. Ramon had a distinctive look. From his Mexican mother he’d inherited his high cheek bones and bronzed complexion. From his father he’d gotten his eyes. Deep blue eyes that caused people to do a double take. Viking eyes in an Aztec face. In other ways, he’d changed more. It was his attitude mostly. He felt different, he thought different, he acted different. Ramon believed the measure of a man was how he responded to adversity, and thought he measured up well. Death row is the end of the line. Once a man is sent there, he might as well give up his humanity at the door. It’s filled with society’s ultimate losers, and being caged together doesn’t bring out their finest qualities. But Ramon had responded to prison as a wakeup call, too late, saying his life had to change. He wasn’t the same person he’d been ten years ago when he first entered this prison. Not that it mattered, they were about to kill an innocent man. But this was before he met Lena Dryer, the reporter doing a story on the workings of the Texas death row system. Before he’d sensed a connection with her, a deep understanding. This was before Dr. Meeks, the prison doctor, examined him, and he’d sensed something wasn’t right. Ramon thinks this is his final week, but his execution is just the beginning of his story. 

Peter Thompson grew up on the east side of Chicago, in the shadow of the steel mills where the air was sooty and smelled of sulfur. His life wasn’t always so gritty, but the grit and realism finds its way into his thrillers. He has always loved stories of every kind, and one of his joys is finding a way to get inside character’s heads, seeing the world as they see it and feeling their triumphs, pain, and fear. He visualizes his characters when he writes, and they are larger than life in the big screen of his imagination. Before pursuing his passion and becoming a full-time author, he tried his hand at everything from factory work, breaking cement in a construction crew, running his own pizza shop, and he was a well-regarded presence in the mortgage industry for nearly thirty years. When he isn’t writing, Peter loves, spicy food, live music, and exciting and thought-provoking books and movies. He is a fitness buff who loves to spend time with his grown sons and is looking forward to traveling the world and seeking adventures with his lovely partner.
