Levi Vogue, Chairman of the powerful Utah Board of Pardons and Parole, is gunned down in the driveway of his home as he returns from a late evening tryst with an exotic dancer. Sam Kincaid, Chief of the Special Investigations Branch (SIB) of the Utah Department of Corrections, is assigned to help Salt Lake City Police Department homicide detective Lt. Kate McConnell solve Vogue's murder. The investigation draws Kincaid and McConnell into the city's seedy underbelly, where the investigation focuses on Charles (Slick) Watts, a violent ex-convict with a long criminal history and a score to settle with Levi Vogue. But before Watts can be apprehended, his body is discovered at an abandoned military base in Wendover, Nevada. Kincaid and McConnell soon expand their theory of the case and are led inside the Utah state prison.... Praise for The Commission 'This impressive debut from a criminal justice professor and former lawman exudes verisimilitude from start to finish...Norman is off to a fine start with this alternately gripping and repellent crime novel.' -Publishers Weekly starred review 'Fast pacing, plot twists, engaging characters, and an inside view of the prison system combine in this strong series debut.' -Booklist Michael Norman is a former police officer, state parole board member, and most recently, a professor of criminal justice at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. The Commission is his first novel. www.michaelnormanauthor.com
