Daniel Griffin launches his debut novel TWO ROADS HOME at Ben McNally Books with guests Rebecca Rosenblum, Mark Sampson, and Emily Saso.

In Daniel Griffin's TWO ROADS HOME, a group of idealistic environmental activists, convinced their peaceful protests have been in vain, turn to sabotage. But in a single night everything they’ve worked for goes terribly wrong: a security guard arrives just as the group sets off an explosion at a logging company warehouse. The novel follows these activists as their lives—and their cause—spiral out of control.

"As propulsive as a thriller, with characters so real they draw blood, this is a powerful novel that never lets up."
-Steven Price, author of By Gaslight
