              FORTY to LIFE

Inspired by a True Incident         

Just one shot, and Ray became a KILLER!

Gangs, guns, and Chicago's infamous murder rate—it doesn't take much to get caught in the maelstrom of chaos and crime with no way out until you're facing forty years in prison ... unless, unless a miracle happens. "Absolutely ASTOUNDING!" wrote one reader. But this novel is based on a true incident that will keep you in suspense to the very end wondering whether Ray will actually make it or not. Here is what other readers are saying:

  • "From the first sentence of the prologue to the final line of the epilogue, I was drawn into the drama of Raymond Slewinski's story. Dave Jackson has captured the heartbeat of Chicago's inner city." —Richard R. Blake
  • "Ray Slewinski is not perfect and slips up many times even in prison. I wanted to say to him, 'Haven't you learned anything?' But I soon realized that it's the choices I make every day that bring me Life or Death." —Nora St. Laurent
  • "FORTY to LIFE is an excellent read. I appreciate all of the work you are doing on behalf of inmates." —Mark C. Curran, Jr., Lake County Sheriff
  • "Dave, how did you get it so right about gangs, life on the streets, and prison? Were you 'inside'?" —Julio, a former Latin King

This new edition of FORTY to LIFE includes interviews with the father and mother of the real victim as well as a follow-up with the actual shooter. Click HERE for further information and to order.
