Beyond Judgment
Stricken with amnesia after a six-year coma, Jake Bronson is haunted by fleeting ghosts of his former life. When his hidden past finally rushes back, it’s accompanied by assassins, psychopathic world leaders, and an ancient order determined to unlock his dormant talents and use them to trigger the extinction of humankind.

Jake reclaims his life, but the reunion is bittersweet, placing long-lost friends and loved ones in harm’s way—as those hunting Jake will stop at nothing to force his participation in their atrocious scheme.

As a madman’s vision for the future nears its apocalyptic fruition, Jake and his allies must find a way to overcome impossible odds and unstoppable foes—or watch as the world burns into oblivion.


With PUBLISHERS WEEKLY heralding the first book in his Brainrush thriller series as “terrifically entertaining” and “inventive and compelling”—after which it was listed in the WALL STREET JOURNAL as the #1 Bestselling Action/Adventure in their “Readers Guide to Self Published Big Sellers”—and the sequel consistently near the top of the Amazon “Top Rated” list since its December 2011 release, Richard Bard now unleashes BEYOND JUDGEMENT, which sees hero Jake Bronson at the mercy of his hidden past.
