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." Former President George H.W. Bush called it "a most interesting read." The book tells 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."
