    (PHOENIX, Ariz) - Think your greatest danger when hiking is Mother Nature? That’s what Nick Perrone thought. What started as a relaxing escape turned into the unlikeliest of murder scenarios. The Executive Graveyard, by Shaye Mann, transports greed, revenge, and the darkest side of man, to the magnificent canyons of Zion National Park. Nick stumbles into a devious murder-for-money plot and becomes the perfect prey. And it’s the tranquil mountains of Southern Utah that play host to corporate greed and revenge at it’s worst. Few, if any, authors have tackled the true effects of corporate malfeasance, the likes of which we’ve seen in cases such as Enron and Worldcomm.

    “I love the outdoors,” says Shaye Mann. “As much as I’ve always been aware of the dangers of hiking, I’ve also wondered if there was something more sinister lurking behind the canyons.” By and large, hikers are cautious and meticulous in caring for their safety. But what if Mother Nature wasn’t the only thing working against them?

    About the author: This is Shaye’s first novel. Shaye is a trial lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona, where he lives with his wife Naomi and their three boys. An avid hiker, Shaye first discovered his love for the great outdoors as a teenager living on the east coast. During his college years, he moved to the west coast and fell in love with the mountains and canyons of the Utah/Arizona corridor. “From a survival perspective, there are so many daunting scenarios you try to prepare for before setting out on a trail. I’ve always been thorough in my preparation for a hike in these remote areas. But none of it involved the dark side of man.”

    Excellent read from a previously unknown author! I randomly picked this one up, just to see what this was all about, and I'm glad I did. I don't want to put any spoilers in here, but believe me when I tell you it's a great read and a real page turner. Nice work, Mr. Mann.
