For I Have Sinned: Book Two of the Emmett Casey Chronicles

Sometimes the deepest scars are the ones we inflict upon ourselves
QUINCY, Ill. - July 15, 2020 - PRLog -- Mick (Little Mick) Casey, a tail gunner in WWII, comes home from the war a hero in everyone's eyes but his own. Scarred by the horrors he has witnessed, Little Mick does what many returning veterans do in order to cope—he learns not to feel. Stepping back onto the civilian streets, he assumes the perception of normalcy. He marries, has a family, and tries to make a life in inner-city Chicago.

A poignant tale of how a father's inability or unwillingness to heal creates a love-hate relationship with his son, sending the child down a steep path of loneliness and self-destruction.

For I Have Sinned continues the saga of the Casey clan, intensely loyal and devoted, but only to each other. Set against a backdrop of war, violence and crime it weaves the history of an ill-fated child's transition from a lonely, inner-city rebel and decorated war veteran to a man who looks all too familiar to him, a man like his father—all earned the hard way.


MICHEAL DEEZE was a child in the notorious Maplewood Commons housing projects of inner city Chicago, growing up hard. And fast. Surrounded by crime and violence, his family struggled to just hold their own while trying to escape their own poverty. Deeze gained street sense young, and it became the backdrop for a life of multiple indiscretions and occupations, call them what you will.

Deeze is a natural-born storyteller—in life and in print. A child of the sixties, he draws extensively from his own diverse experiences and subsequent education to introduce the hapless Emmett Casey. As U.S. Army veteran and retired Doctor of Chiropractic, Deeze now lives in Illinois after spending decades living near the forests of northern Wisconsin. He's a devoted father to his three children, a magical daughter, two grown sons, and his dog. His first novels are the critically acclaimed Bless Me Father, and For I Have Sinned, The Heretic is the final novel in the series.
