    Five-foot, seven-inch Derek Reynolds has earned a reputation as a tough guy protector of women’s rights from Baltimore to Mogadishu. His ground-breaking documentaries on Al-Shabaab, human trafficking, and domestic violence in East Africa have exposed the ugliness of humanity. To Derek’s coworkers and friends, he has become a mentor that helped to shape their professional and personal lives. He encouraged them defend their beliefs and protect the innocent. Unfortunately, in the process, Derek has made many dangerous enemies, one of whom finally retaliates.
    Not more than two months after tragedy strikes the Reynolds family in Kenya, Derek’s closest friends and family find themselves trapped in a compound on the most treacherous night of their lives. Riots, demonstrations, and a police strike scourge the nation’s capital and serve as the perfect storm that allows the city’s most violent criminals twelve hours to loot, rape, and kill with impunity. Now Derek’s loved ones find themselves challenging his legacy to determine if it contains any value that will remain when the dust settles in the morning.
    The Legacy of Derek Reynolds is Marvin Gray’s newest fast-paced thriller set in Nairobi, Kenya. Once again Gray explores the darkest recesses of humanity and flawed characters in an imperfect world.

    American security officer Nicholas Haden is facing the most important assignment of his career. He must protect his boss Renée Thomas on a journey from Nairobi, Kenya into the heart of Al-Shabaab territory in Somalia in order to open a controversial youth center designed to de-radicalize former Islamic militants. A center, he does not believe in. But the success or failure of this model rehabilitation center may mean the difference between future peace and protracted civil war in Somalia.

    For very different motives, both Kenyan counter-intelligence authorities and Al-Shabaab militants will stop at nothing to see that the center fails. In an effort to coerce Haden into sabotaging Renée’s trip, these opposing forces threaten the safety of Haden’s wife and young son living in Nairobi.

    Amid the chaos of Kenyan intelligence and Somali militants, Haden begins to develop feelings of intimacy for his boss. Alcoholism, infidelity, and professional disgrace threaten to rip the fabric of his life to shreds. And Haden realizes that the ability to protect either his boss or his own family is rapidly slipping out of his control.

    Set in Al-Shabaab-infested Kenya and Somalia, In His Own Image is a fast paced thriller that tests the boundaries of human courage, loyalty, and integrity. Both Haden and Thomas must separately challenge their own skewed convictions of sex, family, and honor. To endure this ordeal, they will have to commit acts every bit as heinous as those of their enemies. And neither will survive with their humanity intact.
