New Novel by Former Judge REELFOOT KILLINS is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 17, 2017

A gruesome double murder and the trial of a suspect who might be headed to death row consumes a community for a decade. Readers can follow the action from an anonymous tip through the process of justice in a new book, expected to be released soon by Dog Ear Publishing. 'Reelfoot Killins' centers on the murders of a drug dealer and a well-respected businesswoman. They don't seem to have any obvious connection, and the motive for the murders isn't apparent, but their brutal, execution-style slayings on Reelfoot Lake in northwest Tennessee make it clear their deaths were no accident. An anonymous tip leads to the arrest of two brothers who are local duck hunting and fishing guides. The case seems to be a slam-dunk because of the pair's criminal history, but the suspects seem to think they've got justice on their side and act accordingly. There may be more to the crimes than meets the eye. Readers follow the characters through several states and a world away in war-torn Iraq. Told primarily from The Point of view of the veteran trial judge, the story reveals the murders and the ripple effect they have on Judge Jim Gordon, the suspects, the attorneys and the entire community. In the end, events lead the now-retired judge to a surprising viewpoint he chooses to reveal on national television. The book's twists and turns take readers on a thrill ride that takes its inspiration from the controversy of the death penalty and everything that it entails. Joe G. Riley wrote this novel from the perspective of a judge, made easier thanks to his 26 years on the bench. He was a trial judge for 18 years near Reelfoot Lake in Lake and Dyer Counties in Tennessee, trying several capital cases and imposing the death penalty in murder cases. He served as an appellate court judge for almost eight years, writing and participating in numerous death penalty opinions. Riley is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Tennessee and an honors graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law. He and his wife, Connie, have been married for 47 years. They have three sons and five grandchildren. The retired judge is an avid waterfowl hunter and outdoorsman, as are his sons.

1st Stage Presents the Regional Premiere of TREVOR
by BWW News Desk - Jan 12, 2017

How would you feel if the person closest to you, someone with whom you interact daily, whom you care for and who cares for you, didn't understand a word you were saying and vice versa? This communication challenge is The Point on which balances the story of 200-pound chimpanzee, Trevor and his owner, Sandra. As a one-time commercial and television star alongside the likes of Morgan Fairchild, Trevor is desperate to prove his relevance in a world that has moved on now that he is no longer the adorable baby monkey of his youth. His owner Sandra swears he is still harmless and childlike, protecting herself from the realities of Trevor's dangers and the deep wounds of her own losses. Based on a true story, Trevor is a tale about how relationships, flaws, and excuses can tip-toe a delicate line between side-splitting humor and dangerous misunderstandings. Trevor and Sandra's relationship spins comically and dangerously out of control in this theatrical story by "Orange is the New Black" writer, Nick Jones. The Chicago Sun-Times hailed Trevor as a "hugely entertaining tragicomedy." (more...)
