Praise for the writing of Joseph Max Lewis The Diaries of Pontius Pilate Lewis has written a nail-biting thriller that jumps into action on page 1 and doesn't stop until you reach the back cover. Don't open this book unless you're sitting in a comfortable chair with good reading light, because you won't want to move. - Thom Lemmons, Christy award winning author of Jabez: A Novel, and Blameless. Just Verdicts - Literary short stories Amazing! Three stories that are so real, so heart-breaking...reads like ripped from the headlines. Very good . . . The author's background sizzles and if you don't kw him, you'll want to acquaint yourself promptly. - Lisa J. Lickel, editor in chief of Creative Wisconsin, the literary magazine of Wisconsin Writers Association.
