Was he a good or bad guy? Well, we know he was a good guy maybe...but we know he was a bad guy too. I thought this was interesting reading as a story even though it was basically a true account. I also thought there was a lot of food for thought and coffee hour type discussion created by the circumstances. It was interesting how many people had different opinions when I described the gist of the character.
I suppose as far as a character is concerned you can already tell that sometimes I liked him and sometimes not. Then again, I think maybe that’s what this story is about. I think Painter “painted” a more than likely, very realistic picture of both prison and of his true to life character. A character that could never seem to pass up a deal, even when he knew it was wrong. It was frustrating at times, not the reading...the character. Can’t change things to come out as you’d like though...not to fit into a story that is real.
Overall, a gritty, but interesting read, well worth my time.

Something’s wrong, my intuition told me, as I stepped out of the stairwell and into the chaotic frenzy of the main hallway running under Division One of the Cook County jail.

about Glenn Painter...
Glenn Painter is single and lives in Central Florida. He became interested in writing at an early age but did not make it his career until 2014 when he published his first book, Beyond the Sentence.
Glenn has written this story from the notes by the man who actually lived it. However,
Glenn has also founded a company, ‘Prisoner Civil Right Services.’ He is an advocate for incarcerated individuals who have had their rights violated. He is in constant contact with these individuals, their families and the council. Most of his stories are inspired by ‘factual events’ that have happened to these individuals. This makes his stories both fiction and non-fiction.
Glenn says that writing is very challenging, and you must love the trials and tribulations that come with it. He believes that patience, perseverance and determination are required essentials to see a book through to being published. The journey is just as important as the destination.

Does the photo below answer this question????
Last year a man I sold 3 Cadillac’s too wrote a letter to my boss. A few quotes are written below. It’s too long to write the whole thing.
I am a retired Cadillac salesman having been in the business over 30 years.
I have stumbled across a salesman I consider to be quite different.
His name is Glenn Painter.
I have bought 3 new Cadillacs from Glenn this past year and
I have recommended him to many others.
I live about 20 miles from the dealership, but Glenn is well worth the driving time.
He has gone out of his way to make my wife and myself totally satisfied with our new
He speaks very articulate and is very knowledgeable.
If I owned a dealership today, I wish I had a Glenn Painter as one of my salespeople.
I found out when I bought my cars from Glenn that he is also an author.
My hats off to Glenn.
Q/Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
I would want to go wherever the contents of the book took place i.e./ the book I am working on now took place in a small town in the State of Washington, so that’s where I should go to do research and talk with people who might have any knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the event that took place.
Q/Who designed the book cover for the book touring?
Actually, I designed the book cover with great ideas and input from my Mother. We both did research on the internet until we came up with what we thought ‘fit the story line’ the best.
