FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FOR THE LOVE OF WARRIORS, COPS AND DOGS…A NOVEL OF TRIBUTE AND POSSIBLY SELF HELP AND REDEMPTION
Atlanta, GA (Date) Author Greg Plank has published his second novel Black Dog Redemption-Faith Over Fear featuring three iconic American heroes from different wars and a legendary dog. The story, set in the historic mountain town of Dahlonega, Georgia, follows the four of them, including one turned sheriff, as they struggle to unravel a scam that soon turns life threatening for all of them.
The story begins when a black dog is found at a murder scene. Fear, loyalty, love and the ghosts of war converge. Is the black dog the ancient symbol of death and the devil, or a sign of a better future and redemption for three veterans haunted by PTSD?
When Edwin and Lee Christian opened the St. George Inn on the square of an historic and idyllic mountain town they had no idea how brutal the future might be. When Noah Harris returned from Iraq and ran for sheriff to protect the mountain folks that he loved, he had no clue how difficult that might become. For over thirty years Cliff Barr had been hiding on the mountain trying to forget the tragedies of Vietnam. The world was about to find him. The almost forgotten legend of the Cherokees’ Black Dogs comes to life in a very real life-changing way.
Plank created the story and the characters because of his love for dogs, and his respect for their character and the character of good American warriors. The dogs in the story were bred to hunt, but they assumed the bravery of the Cherokee warriors and the spiritual instincts of the tribal medicine men. That is how Plank has always seen the best of our military and law enforcement. He believes that American warriors in all branches of service are different than most throughout history, committed to the philosophy of…defeat the enemy, but then repair.
Plank knew that he had the right formula when he got this reply from a veteran:
“You did a wonderful job of using a relatively light mystery and the love of Man’s Best Friend to underscore several of life’s issues and challenges that so many have faced adjusting to life again after finding their way out of the military. I found in this novel a continuous undercurrent of my belief in Faith Over Fear as a means to guide one’s life. There were several elements to the book that reinforced once again my love for my dogs, my love of life and the ability to not look back at the blacker aspects of my past experiences but rather to live with my Faith for today which overcomes my fear of tomorrow. Black Dog Redemption has great meaning and is a fun read to boot.”
In Plank’s mind God gave us Dogs for a reason.
