"The dialogue is crisp, natural, and propels the story forward at a frenetic pace making the reader reluctant to put the book down." ~ Robert Sodaro, Hartford Literature Examiner

Sure, being a courier for a secret, possibly terrorist society has its risks, but the pay was worth it.

At least I thought it was until I was ordered to make a late-night run to Boston to meet an opium-addicted, vodka-addled contact, who blows the deal. Now I am being hunted as I hobble, injured through the streets of Beantown.

When I discover a planted gun and my new assignment, I wonder if perhaps I made a bad career choice.


Chicago has been a war zone for the last 50 years.
Gangs shoot up the streets, while corrupt politicians and predatory businesses get rich by stealing from the poor. In a place fraught with danger and fueled by poverty, a young white man named Ron Pickles discovers a resilient people with an indestructible spirit. But, there are sinister forces looking to create misfortune and reap profits at the expense of people that society cares little about. Ron soon learns that it isn’t the ghetto he needs to fear, but the corrupt insurance agency that recruited him in the first place. Inspired by a true story, “The Black Ledger” is a multi-cultural/mystery crime thriller that will take you into the heart of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods and experience a life you couldn’t imagine existed in the United States.

“D.G. Allen’s The Black Ledger is a smart, often funny, and compelling look at the dirty business of “death insurance” on the West Side of Chicago. Allen has vividly recreated the time and place with impeccable detail, colorful characters, and crackling dialogue; not to mention a heartbreaking murder mystery that always keeps you guessing. It may be set in the 80’s but it is a powerful message about race and corruption still resonating today!”
- Tim Sulka, screenwriter: “Children of the Corn 666: Isaac’s Return” Author: Prime Cuts (graphic novel)

“I grew up in the Chicago community depicted in this novel. D.G. Allen depicts a much darker but funnier side of that neighborhood that I could ever have imagined. It is a captivating and wonderfully written story. A MUST READ!”
- Debra Wright Hughes

“This novel breaks the barriers of the thriller genre. I have never read something so unique as this world that D.G. Allen has created.”
- John Franklin, screenwriter: “Children of the Corn 666: Isaac’s Return” Author: Prime Cuts (graphic novel)

“Highly recommended! This story takes us into a world most of us will never see and into a business that most of us never dreamed existed. He writes with such skill that you will laugh one minute, cry the next, and never even realize your jaw has dropped. His characters are believable and fascinating! I became engrossed in this book from start to finish. A unique and mesmerizing novel…don’t miss it!”
- Elizabeth Benney MA. DT. CIMI, Director LTP Center

When we met at his office, he told me that if I stayed at my current job I would fall behind in the technology market. While taking long walks at night with Brandy, I discussed Dr. Flynn's recommendation with her. She gave me the courage to start my own business, even though I picked the wrong partner, resulting in having to assume his responsibilities in the company.

Brandy was my trusted adviser and companion until the day she died at the age of 15 ½. Since then I was never able to get another Springer Spaniel.
