Kyle Mills

Ever wonder why, after all the millions of dollars in foreign aid that has been poured into -Africa, very little seems to have changed? Author Kyle Mills does, and his answer is the novel Lords of Corruption. Based on the very possible premise that a fake charity could receive millions in aid without ever actually aiding anyone, Lords is centered on Josh Hagarty. He’s just joined a little-known charity as manager, but almost immediately starts to see that things aren’t what they seem. Especially unsettling is the fact that Josh’s predecessor was found dismembered in the jungle after asking a few unwanted questions. Not wanting to end up in bits and pieces himself, but unwilling to let the corruption he finds go unchecked, Josh sets out on a dangerous path: He’s going to bring down the fake charity and all its rich members. Kyle Mills signs and discusses Lords of Corruption today at 6:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-524-8597 or visit www.murderbooks.com. Free.
