New Novel Creates Intriguing Mystery Based on Today’s Headlines; Ian Greenham Releases New Book

coverGreenhamJustice

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Justice Down” by Ian Greenham.

Author Ian Greenham turns current legal headlines into an unforgettable mystery in his latest book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Conservative Supreme Court Justice Damon King is quietly murdered in his study at home, and FBI Agent Dexter Chambeau is assigned to find which of King’s many enemies was responsible. 

Supreme Court Justice Damon King garnered many enemies during his 25 years on the nation’s highest court. His rigidly conservative opinions on gun rights, gay rights, abortion, and capital punishment played a crucial role in building hostility amongst left wing opponents, as much as it made him the darling of the far right. King was a harsh, distant parent, alienating his children through his uncompromising insistence on adherence to strictly conservative values. King and his fellow conservative judges were on the brink of overturning one of the most controversial liberal precedents of the last 50 years when he was found dead in his own home.

FBI agent Dexter Chambeau, a long-time bureau veteran, is called in to collar the criminal responsible. Chambeau is stymied by the large number of suspects, as King’s divisive rulings and abrasive personality have enraged any number of people. Every lead Chambeau follows turns into a dead end; the lack of evidence is maddening. Chambeau’s attraction to King’s divorced daughter, Eleanor, a journalist, only complicates his task. Will the seasoned veteran crack this high-profile case, or will justice be served better if King’s murderer eludes Chambeau’s grasp? Justice Down is an entertaining thriller, packed with twists and turns that will leave the reader wondering whodunit until the last pages are turned.

Author Ian Greenham, a native of Melbourne, Australia, worked as a lawyer with one of Australia’s leading commercial law firms before serving in the country’s diplomatic service. Eventually, he was recruited by a major U.S. bank, and after assignments spanning the globe, has settled in New York City. His abiding interest in the law and its social ramifications gave him the ballast for the controversial themes in this, his second novel.

Reformed Gangster, Lorenzo “Shorty G” Louden, Publishes His Memoir, A Soldier’s Redemption, And Gives The World A Rare Glimpse Into The Life Of A Mob Soldier Turned Soldier For God

coverLouden

Dog Ear Publishing releases “A Soldier’s Redemption: The Life of Gangster, Shorty G” by Lorenzo Louden.

Lorenzo “Shorty G” Louden is defying the odds and proving that recidivism is not inevitable. He went from being one of the most notorious gang chiefs ever to be locked up in the Illinois State Prison system to becoming the pride of Springfield, Illinois. The award-winning Christian co-founder (along with his wife, Bevey) of Tower of Refuge, Inc. is a successful businessman who uses his difficult background and the grace of God to help other ex-offenders stay out of prison and turn their lives around.

Coming from a broken home, and living in the street world of 1960’s and 1970’s poverty-stricken, urban Chicago, Lorenzo grew increasingly alienated and angry. He quickly learned his way around a weapon, joined a “peewee” street organization, and came to believe that life is a dog-eat-dog, use-you-before-you-use-me proposition. He was completely deprived of the loyalty, support, love, and devotion a child needs to survive. So, young Lorenzo struck a Daniel Webster-esque bargain, exchanging true family for the loyalty and brotherhood of his street gang. A juvenile gangster was born—and ended up in prison for murder before he turned twenty years old.

“A Soldier’s Redemption” is a true, candid, no holds barred story of infamous Gangster Disciple Lorenzo Louden, aka “Shorty G.” His story immerses you in the notorious world of gangs, taking you on a bone-chilling ride through the streets of 1970s Chicago. While serving 17 years behind bars, his militant rule of the underworld expanded from the streets to the prisons until a spiritual encounter directed his journey out of the darkness onto a miraculous path of purpose and possibility.

Author Lorenzo Louden, known as “Shorty G” when he was a Gangster Disciple, was born in Little Rock, Ark., but grew up in Chicago. He is CEO and co-founder of the Tower of Refuge in Springfield, an organization that works to successfully reintegrate former inmates into society while reducing recidivism and promoting reconciliation with families. He also teaches at Logan Correctional Center. In 2011 the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce honored Lorenzo as Not-For-Profit Business Director of the Year Small Business Award, and in 2013, Tower of Refuge earned the One In A Million, Inc. Community Service Award. Louden and his wife, Bevey, live in Springfield, Ill.
