About this title


Imagine you're in your late twenties. School is behind you.  You have money, a beautiful wife, lots of friends.  Everything you ever wanted is at your fingertips.

And then suddenly, it's all taken from you. 

Shep Harrington was a young, prosperous and happy lawyer, his bright future shining on the horizon like a beacon.  But things that shine are not always what they seem.  Contentment can be intoxicating, dulling the senses to the signs of change. 

He and wife Anna were living their dream--together.  And then they weren't.

Shep was convicted of a crime he didn't commit and sent to prison.  Anna, believing him guilty, divorced him. Both were victims of a system created and operated by an older generation who valued power and money over fairness.

Out of prison, Shep must again contend with people who see truth in practical terms as he probes the death of a man whom he loved and who loved him.  A classic murder mystery, Lonesome Song explores the challenges of surviving injustice and of doing the right thing.

About the Author:

Elliott Light, a man of diverse professional experience (engineering, law, and inventing) and eclectic side-interests (hydroponic gardening, astronomy, and playing guitar), lives in Rockville, MD, and works for a patent firm in Reston, VA.

He grew up in and near some small towns of Virginia, not far from the hometowns of his famous descendants, U.S. Chief Justice John Marshall and U.S. President Thomas Jefferson – a man whose college and graduate degrees come from the institution Jefferson himself established in a once small Virginia town called Charlottesville.

He now resides in Rockville, Maryland with his wife, Sonya, and their two felines, Sumo and Sasha. "Lonesome Song" is his first published novel. His sequel, another Shep Harrington Smalltown Mystery, is called "Chain Thinking," is scheduled for publication in fall 2002, and its initial two chapters appear in the back of this book.
