Against the Current, by Brian L. MacLearn answers the
question: What if ‘the bully’ is still in your life after twenty-five
years? - It’s time to fight back!

For Immediate Release – (Waverly, Iowa. – June 23
2014) Brian L. MacLearn’s, Against the Current
explores the evil behind the need to manipulate others, and
the inner strength of goodness that compels some of us to
stand up to that evil.
Four years of planning for his freedom, and one heroic
moment, sets off a ticking time bomb of massive destruction
in the quiet town of Mt. Clarkton, Iowa. With the help of a a
kindred spirit, Jeff Peyton is forced to play one last winner-
take-all game against master manipulator, Matt Sinclair. Jeff
needs to win this game, not only for his own survival, but to
protect everyone he loves.
Evil comes in many forms and wears many faces. The power
hungry manipulator will stop at nothing to keep his power,
and to keep his golden ticket from rising up against him. The
victim is in some ways as calculating as the bully, and willing
to sacrifice himself for the sake of others. What begins as a
story of constant abuse and the struggle to break free, turns
into a psychological suspense thriller where not all is what it
