But for the Crash
Book Synopsis: In 2001, three students from a Minnesota Christian college were killed by a drunk driver going the wrong way on a four-lane highway. The beginning of this novel is based on that tragedy, and though fiction, the story tells of the chilling reverberations of this kind of crash. ---- In the novel, the incident not only impacts the families of the victims, but also the lives of the prosecutor, defense attorney, judge and many others, perhaps, most remarkably, the drunk driver. This leads to intrigue and suspense in the courtroom, continues with twists and turns, and ends in a most unexpected way.----- But for the Crash is thought provoking, compelling, and original. Not incidentally, this novel could be used as a textbook for prosecutors and defense attorneys working on DUI felony cases.---- About the Author: Author and Renaissance man George A.M. Heroux is a lawyer, victim advocate, university instructor, musician, poet, songwriter, actor, and author. He has written four books, six plays and two screenplays that have been produced, four songs that have been recorded professionally, and many articles for magazines and newspapers.---- Heroux is the Executive Director/Attorney for Victim Impact Speakers, a nonprofit organization that assists families of victims of drunk driving and reckless driving crashes. He has a law degree from Albany Law School (Union College) and an MBA from Florida Atlantic University. As an advocate for victims of drunk driving crashes, he wrote this novel based on his experiences and observations. He lives in Springfield, Illinois. ----
