Even the dream of college, sports, and a personal commitment to his mother could not prevent Duane Freeman from falling victim to the lure of his neighborhood's vice and violence in Compton, California. 

Betrayed by his childhood sweetheart and his best friend, he is arrested for attempted murder and ushered into the largest human warehousing system in the United States -- the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Rather than fall victim to mindless prison politics, learned helplessness, and slow death so many young Black men in the system were trapped in, Duane discovers his true self, reaffirms his heritage, and finds his personal dignity as he transforms his character. 

After serving seven years of his ten-year sentence, he returns to the streets a focused man with a plan. Despite growth in making good choices and decisions, Duane is put to the ultimate test when history repeats itself: will he go forward, or will disappointment overrule his judgment and cause him to revisit the dark, foul pits of hell?

About the Author:

W. F. Redmond was born in the backwoods of Arkansas, the eldest of eight children, whose parents' lives were anchored to the cotton fields. But it was on the streets and playgrounds of Compton, California, that Redmond came of age. His daughter, six grand-children and four great-grands inspire, challenge and keep him young at heart. His work is also dedicated to his mother Rosie Lee, and his sisters, Amy, Jackie and Sharon, all of whose lives were cut far too short. He spends his days working at and striving to improve his craft. He is the author of the critically acclaimed two novel set, Compton Connection Books 1 and 2; the mid-west urban thriller, All is Fair in Hate; and the soon to be released, Arkansas Has Rainy Nights Too. He tells us that, "I have only just begun. The best is yet to come!"

Reviewed by Robin Clark for Readers Favorite

"Slapped by Injustice" gives you a look at an ex-con's life through his eyes. You can feel his struggles, his disappointments, his losses and his wins. It really communicates the realities that newly released prisoners face, as well as the prejudices. The story is very smooth and has strong impact on readers. Kudos to W.F. Redmond for his accomplishment in putting the regular Joe into the mind of an ex-con. Look forward to reading more of his work.
