Bunk Russell, a writer, entrepreneur, and former instructor in the University of North Carolina system, Strayer University, and Jack Welch College of Business, has completed his new book “In the Heartland: Story So Real, It Might Be True”: a suspenseful tale that keeps the pages turning until the stunning conclusion.

Russell writes, “This is a story that centers around the changing of our society in the post 9/11 era, a change that is real but denied for the most part by the government and the press. It illustrates and brings to life, through a group of fictional characters that you may recognize, an undercurrent of disappointment and at times outright hate of certain segments of our society. The storyline plays out mostly in the heartland of this country around everyday folks like you and me. The plot centers around the FBI trying to solve hate crimes against the Muslim community featuring the lead character, Jonathan Blake. Blake is a man of questionable morals, and he is brought out of retirement to lead a team of former and current FBI and CIA agents in this pursuit. This all plays out in the Pacific Northwest against a backdrop of patriotic White Supremacist groups. It is full of action and intrigue and develops an interesting ending that has you begging for more.”

Published by Page Publishing, Bunk Russell’s engrossing book is a must-read for avid fans of detective fiction.
