Online PR News – 01-June-2010 – – St. Louis, Missouri – May 31, 2010 – Author Kenneth Underhill of St. Louis, Missouri today announced the publication of his debut fiction novel, Jack Fell Down. The book is a modern suspense story of business fraud perpetrated by a scheming young salesman from Kansas City, Missouri. Underhill, once himself a salesman for nearly twelve years, derived much of his material for the book from his professional experience in that field.

Jack Fell Down offers a compelling examination of the main character, Jack Stabbish and his tragic downward spiral from a successful, stand-up salesman to deceitful con-man. The book’s rapid, one-week time-line marks the end of his fall and lurch to legitimacy through a series of far-reaching events with life-altering consequences.

“In the past two years, we’ve been astounded by the enormous scale of scams by people like Bernie Madoff and others in the financial world, and yet everyday there are literally thousands of frauds inflicted by seemingly ethical people on the companies employing them,” Underhill said. “This book reveals just how easy it is for a person to fall into that category, and how difficult it is to escape.”

Jack Fell Down; ISBN 978-1439253649; 420 pages, $17.99 CreateSpace Publishing, is available at, and select bookstores.
