Author Troy Lambert, recently nominated for the Idaho Statesman's “Best of Treasure Valley” publication as an “Author of the Year”, is releasing a third and final book in the Samuel Elijah Johnson Series, titled Confession (scheduled for release June 30, 2014).
Passionate about writing dark, psychological thrillers, his work includes Broken Bones, a collection of his short stories, Redemption, the first in the Samuel Elijah Johnson Series, Temptation, the sequel to Redemption, along with the horror Satanarium, co-authored with Poppet, an author from South Africa and published by Wild Wolf Publishing.
Don't think he lacks diversity as, this year, Stray Ally (for dog lovers) was published March 4th by Tirgearr Publishing and an erotic thriller novella, One Night in Boise, part of the “City Nights” series also by Tirgearr Publishing, was available as of May 27th.
Mr. Lambert began his writing life at a young age, penning the as yet unpublished George and the Giant Castle at age six. He grew up in southern Idaho, and after many adventures including a short stint in the US Army and a diverse education, Troy returned to Boise, Idaho where he works as a freelance writer, analyst, and editor.
Troy lives with his wife of twelve years, two of his five children and two very talented dogs. He enjoys the outdoors as an active skier, cyclist, hiker, angler, hunter, and a terrible beginning golfer.

Samuel Elijah Johnson returns, and now his past has come back to haunt him. There is an entire church that shares her beliefs, and more. They think they are doing God’s work, and convince Sam to join them. But evil rears its ugly head, and he discovers a different kind of prison. One that glorifies confession, demands obedience, and punishes transgression.
One Night in Boise
Det Derek Marshek and wife, Cheri, play sex games to keep things spicy. Tonight they're at the Seven Bells Motel. When gunfire wakes him from a doze, he finds his weapon gone and so is Cheri. Derek is emotionally thrown sideways when he sees the victim's body. His life has just taken a left turn down the wrong road. How can he tell his estranged son the news when he doesn't believe it himself?
A strange accident on the freeway, accusations of murder, and an encounter in the Idaho wilderness all propel Todd Clarke into a new friendship with a dog named Sparky. But Sparky is no ordinary dog, and there is more going on than Clarke could have imagined.
What do prison and church have in common? In both places you can learn of your need for redemption. You can even determine to right the wrongs you have done: you can determine to redeem yourself. However, true Redemption is not found inside the walls of a church or a prison. Sometimes you have to go further and do more to find it than you ever imagined.
Samuel Elijah Johnson worked hard in prison to earn his law degree. He got out and started representing clients at parole hearings with surprising results: he never lost. Earning a reputation as an up and comer with a great deal of respect for the truth, now he is faced with Temptation: Will he forsake his values for more money and notoriety?
