9781489558725: The Witness in the Window: A coming of age novel combining adventure and suspense with a touch of nostalgia.

It is June of 1941 when a noise in the street awakens Charlie Bishop. Looking out the window, he becomes the lone witness to a heinous crime. But Charlie's appearance in the window doesn't go unnoticed by the angry mob outside and the search for the young witness begins. Shuffled off to his grandparents’ secluded home in the hills of West Virginia, the eight year old is relentlessly pursued by the desperate men. Charlie seeks to forget about those on his trail by filling his days with exciting childhood experiences, but all the while he is struggling to overcome the paralyzing fear that grips him as the ruthless stalkers plot how to ensnare their elusive prey. A devastating motorcycle accident on a winding mountain road forces the hunters to rethink their diabolical plan. Power-packed with mystery, adventure and suspense, this novel also provides a mixture of humor, nostalgia and endearing characters. Jack Coleman's writing not only tells the story, it turns the reader into an eye witness to the action. "The Witness in the Window" will hold your interest until the very last page.

From the Author:

It is with great joy that I present "The Witness in the Window" to the reading public.  If you read and enjoyed my first book, "Remembering Redbank," I can almost guarantee that you will be blessed as you become absorbed in the pages of "The Witness in the Window."  I want to assure you that this book is a a work of fiction.  The characters and many of the places and events mentioned in "The Witness in the Window" have been birthed directly from my mind and imagination.  However, it must also be confessed that more than a few of Charlie's adventures are based upon real experiences from my life as I was growing up.  I did indeed visit my grandparents several times during the summer months in the quaint mountain town of Quinnimont, West Virginia.  Several who have read "The Witness in the Window" have mentioned that the book reminds them of "To Kill A Mockingbird" or "The Client."  I certainly don't put myself in the category of those esteemed authors, but I do believe that the 1941 summer adventures of a boy named Charlie will live in your memory for years to come.

About the Author:

JACK COLEMAN has pursued many careers in his lifetime. Born and raised in the picturesque town of Lewisburg, West Virginia, he studied at Greenbrier Military Institute and the University of West Virginia. Upon completing his education, Jack enlisted in the United States Army and served for three years in military intelligence. When his tour of duty in Germany ended, he exchanged his uniform to work as a civilian in the intelligence field for an additional twenty years, including four years in Australia. Jack then retired from government service to go into the service of the Lord. He and his wife founded a large non-denominational church in Laurel, Maryland and pastored The Tabernacle for the following twenty years. The church became recognized around the world as an International Christian Center and the international leadership conferences that were held there attracted delegates from many nations. Recognizing the call upon their lives to world missions, Jack and Jean resigned from the church and began traveling internationally, preaching the gospel on every continent. They currently take several trips abroad every year sharing in churches, Bible schools and conferences. Their hearts have been particularly joined to the nations of India, Peru and Niger. Jack now resides with his wife in Knoxville, Tennessee where he has added the title of author to his career resume. His first novel "Remembering Redbank" is currently available in both paperback and digital copies.
