REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A man's seemingly innocent hobby of flying a model drone turns into a nightmare when he accidentally captures a video of a woman being murdered by drowning. What would he do when he's confronted with a huge dilemma: his state senator wife who's running for governor of California centers her political platform on privacy issues in this digital age; and the victim's very wealthy, influential and powerful husband threatens him if he presents the video evidence to the police? Author Pete Liebengood's newly published lighthearted political thriller, Accidental Droning, is an entertaining novel that gathers an interesting mix of characters who will do anything and everything for money, politics, revenge – and perhaps, love.
Former country club golf shop manager Bo Granger turned to flying his private hobby drone as a pastime. When his drone accidentally captured footage of a man drowning a woman in a pool in their very private, exclusive neighborhood, he didn't realize that it would spark up a series of misadventures for him. He would be nearly shot to death by a hit man hired by the dead woman's husband; be falsely accused of sexual abuse by his wife's housekeeper; and be involved in a torrid affair with a journalist.
