Terrorism is war in a new form.
In “Soul Witness,” defense attorney William C. Costopoulos channels more than 40 years of professional experience in the criminal justice system into an eye-opening fiction novel based on the potential for “lone wolf” terrorist attacks on American soil.
Costopoulos, a former prosecutor and one of Pennsylvania’s most notable defense lawyers, aims to expose the grievous consequences that terrorism causes to human life and civil society.
Based on actual events in history, “Soul Witness” follows a series of fictional terrorist events on American soil. Culminating in a suspenseful trial of the primary suspect, “Soul Witness” shows readers how members of the United State criminal justice system wrestle with moral, ethical and legal issues surrounding a defendant who defies all known precedents.
“The pursuit of justice can be elusive, and constantly requires the examination of one’s own morality,” Costopoulos said.
Through his novel, Costopoulos hopes to relay the message that justice is not just a worldly matter.
