CUMMING, Ga. — A local author is celebrating the nationwide release of his first crime thriller novel.
Jim Henninger's "Recording a Kill" follows Kevin Harrington's life of turmoil across the country. It's a story of a man's fight to regain his reputation, job and normal life. In the process, the protagonist confronts his lying accuser and witnesses a murder.
Henninger has lived in Cumming since 2001.
With a repertoire of jokes like, "Birthdays are like fleas. The more you have, the more people seem to notice." It would be hard to imagine Henninger writing about anything but comedy.
After Henninger had a hip replacement surgery in 2013, he took a six-week medical leave and finally wrote his first novel, spending about four hours writing a day.
Henninger's passion for sports as well as real life influences can be seen throughout the novel. In one instance, Henninger said, "there comes a point when Kevin's father returns his baseball jersey because the coach did him wrong."
These real life adaptations, combined with Henninger's love of sports and current job, make for a killer novel.
