The Dead Peasants File

For Kindle


The Dead Peasants File is an exciting new Christian suspense novel by L. Craig Harris. It took more than five years to write and is now available as a paperback and as a Kindle e-Book from It is also for sale at Blaser's Books in Palestine and The Scroll in Tyler.

Synopsis: Dillon McGee is a security guard for the largest retail company in the world, Morgan Retail. But something is going terribly wrong. He discovers Morgan is murdering his co-workers to cash in their life insurance. Then it gets worse – Dillon learns he is the next target. He must find a way to escape before he is hunted down. He is on a dangerous adventure and desperate fight for his life.
Dillon teams up with a local pastor whose wife has recently gone to work for Morgan Retail. The pastor hates the company because it put a small bar code on his wife's forehead. He couldn't stand the idea of a mark on her forehead and she took his children and left him. She went to work for Morgan because she was desperate, but she is learning what kind of company she is working for.

Dead peasant's insurance is real. Companies routinely purchase corporate-owned life insurance policies on their workers. If the worker dies, the company, not the family, receives the benefit.
The Dead Peasants File is fast-paced and exciting, building to a breath-taking climax that is hauntingly frightening, heart-breaking and realistic, but ultimately satisfying.

“I will be looking for more books from this author L. Craig Harris. THE DEAD PEASANTS FILE, was great. The characters worked together to bring down the evil bad guys. Action all the way through this book moves it fast. The family interactions are a treat. They fit well with what is happening to all involved in this drama. Would like to see these characters in another story.”

You know they will get the bad guys in the end but how that was the interesting part. Enjoyed the scriptures and the Pastor's messages.”

I thought the author did a good job of introducing the characters and I enjoyed the way the author was able to bring in a bible lesson here and there.”

(Karen's husband, Rusty, tells me they read it aloud while on vacation and really enjoyed it.)

(From Facebook)  "It's a great story and I look forward to the next one." - Trudy Huffman

(Via Email) " kept me up all night! First night I really got into it, I stayed up too late reading it but was too far away from the finish line, so the next night I "had" to finish it. Stayed up until practically morning reading it! Your book really had great pace, great characterization and you do so well with the action scenes (makes me jealous!). I felt like I was watching a movie, once the story started unfolding. And in my opinion, that's a good thing too because I can actually visualize the characters and the book, because it brought the book to life." - Cheril Vernon

(From Facebook) I really enjoyed your book! It was a page turner, for sure, with all the action, excitement, and sometimes, very tense moments. Whenever I would put it down, I couldn't wait to pick it up again to see what was going to happen next. I would literally grit my teeth for the characters, at times. LOL Thank you for a great read. I hope you write more... - Carla Adair Winston-Atkins
