The Hero Among Us: Memoirs of an FBI Witness Hunter
By Jim Ingram with James L. Dickerson / Introduction by former Mississippi Governor William F. Winter
Crime-Fighting FBI Agent was America’s Top Expert on Terrorism

TWO NEW EDITIONS COMING LATER IN 2016: A smaller, pocket-size edition AND a large print edition

Jim Ingram is to the FBI what Elliot Ness was to the Treasury Department—a larger-than-life symbol of American justice, a Klan-busting crime fighter who was involved with some of the highest profile FBI cases of the 1960s and 1970s. In his memoir Ingram provides insider information about those cases. Jim Ingram was the primary source in journalist Jack Nelson’s 1993 bestselling book, “Terror in the Night: The Klan’s Campaign Against the Jews,” which focused on the FBI’s infiltration of the Klan in an effort to protect Mississippi Jews. Jim Ingram passed away in August 2009 of cancer, but worked on this memoir with co-author James L. Dickerson right up until his death. Following his death, the FBI supplied Dickerson with more than 1,400 pages of previously classified documents to supplement Ingram’s recollections.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

A History of Mississippi Newspapers

James L. Dickerson | Non-fiction / History


Mississippi has a history of journalism that is second to none. Politically, newspapers in the state have run the gambit from liberal to arch-conservative, with editors displaying varying levels of leadership and news gathering abilities. Some newspapers, such as the Delta Democrat-Times, made news by going against social custom on racial issues; others resisted social change of any kind. The author is one of few journalists to work on the staffs of the Delta-Democrat-Times, the Greenwood Commonweatlh, the Clarion-Ledger/Jackson Daily News—and The Commercial Appeal in Memphis, which had an enormous influence on the northern third of the state and, in earlier years, was considered by Mississippians to be a state newspaper.

Your Angel Is Waiting

What would You Like For Dinner Before Your Journey Begins?

James L. Dickerson | Non-fiction / Cooking

With that question the author approached dozens of well-known people from the areas of politics, music, film, sports, and celebrity chiefs and restaurant owners, all of whom responded with recipes or menus. Among those responding were Bill Clinton, John Elway, John McCain, Gregg Allman, Rosie O'Donnell, Jack Nicklaus, Betty White, Ann Coulter, Helen Reddy, and Paul Anka. Unfortunately, some of the celebrities who responded passed away after sending in their recipes and menus: Edward Kennedy (Cape Cod Fish Chowder), Dick Clark (Cajun Corn Chowder) , Carl Reiner (Potlejel), and Patti Page (rice casserole).
