Share Article

New novel tells a story of mental breakdown, paranoia and alcoholism, and a man’s journey to redemption.

In his early years, author John William Campbell ran into a few legal problems that his lawyer would not deal with. Out of fear, Campbell taught himself to be an investigator and studied law, turning the tables on his opponents and their lawyers.

His book, Living In Fear, is an easy-read novel based on a true story of mental breakdown, paranoia and alcoholism, and a man’s fifteen year journey to another chance in life. “Oh my God, if Mr. Campbell's story is true, it is the evidence beyond any doubt that the system which is put in place to protect us has turned against us,” one reviewer writes.

Written in an honest and intriguing manner, this novel exposes one man’s life and his attempt to help his family and community from living in fear. He creates his own world wherein he sets the system straight, protecting those who needs protection. But will he achieve his goals with all the obstacles in his way?

With twenty-four chapters, this book is about impossible legal battles against big corporations, the intentions of the movies Law Abiding Citizen, Conspiracy Theory and Sleeping With The Enemy, and the plot concept similar with A Beautiful Mind.
