Lee is working on a new book:


What if Child Protective Services knocked on your door late one evening, telling you that your new nanny had made a child abuse complaint? While Adam Grammaticus fights back shock waves upon hearing the incredible—and false—allegations against him, his wheelchair-bound wife Kate protests against the authorities, who insist on entering the house and waking three-year-old Emma to check on her well being. After meeting with a lawyer, Adam and Kate learn just how few options they really have and worry that CPS could return at any time. In an attempt to clear his name—and get to the bottom of things—Adam turns for help to his ex-military Harley-riding childhood pal Tugg Morgan, who suffers from his own dark past, including a fatal secret that he and Adam have kept since they were kids. When some bogus evidence later surfaces against Adam, Emma is finally taken by CPS, and Adam escapes to the open road with Tugg, where they embark on a journey to get Emma back.....and make everyone pay who had anything to do with this. They're in Tugg's world now: a world of outlaw motorcycle clubs, risky choices, and brutal justice, which eventually leads them to a vast conspiracy that explains what happened to Emma even while it threatens to remove Adam from her life forever.
