It's no wonder that, after reading "Touched by Fire," country music legend, George Jones, wrote Frank Griffin to say: "I thoroughly enjoyed the book." It's an amazing American story. In 1954 Johnnie Frank Griffin witnessed the violent death of Alabama's Attorney General-elect Albert Patterson. Six months later he told a grand jury about it. The next day he was stabbed. He died that night in a hospital built on profits from crime. Nine years later Johnnie Frank’s son, Frank Griffin, saw Lee Harvey Oswald fleeing down a Dallas street. Between these two events Frank grew up in one of the strangest decades in American history. His story touches that of Alabama Governor John Patterson. It collides with mob bosses and CIA operations. There’s even room for country music and barroom brawls. This book shows how Frank Griffin’s life is truly "Touched By Fire."

    A beautiful narrative and a unique story -- a father and a son share the same experience of witnessing a high profile crime ten years apart. His father Johnnie Griffin, was a star witness in the murder of Attorney General-Elect Albert Patterson in Alabama, 1954. He was stabbed after appearing in the Grand Jury and later died in the hospital. This hospital was supported by the mobs. After almost a decade, in 1963, a few minutes after John F Kennedy was assassinated, Frank Griffin saw Lee Harvey Oswald fleeing the crime scene of the murder of police officer J.D Tippit, Fearing for his life, he kept to himself what he saw. Aside from the crime story, the book narrates the life of the author, Franklin Griffin. Although deprived of a functional family and practically lived outside of his home, he grew up to be a good person, a good citizen and even a defender of the country when he joined the Marines. It is interesting to note that he survived the terrible pains of life, abandoned by a... More > bigamist father, and working at a tender age. I really enjoyed reading the book and read it in one sitting. It inculcates in my mind that in God’s grace and time, no matter how hard life is, there is always hope that lies ahead…. there is always hope in our tomorrow.< Less
