Both versions are now available on amazon.com. You will also find The Outsider on the page and The Parables underneath that. The Red-Tape Suicide is listed as unavailable because I have withdrawn it with intention of extensively rewriting it. I still think it is a great subject--life in the inner sanctums of the federal government behind those marble facades in Washington DC.
I hope you will check out the The Deadly Candidate. It can be read before The Outsider although I recommend reading the two books in order. Between the two of them, you will get a thorough understanding of how local governments work, or not, while reading some rip-roaring action as you do.
