Retired ATF officer Mark Rusin of Lombard will discuss his debut novel Justice for Dallas at Lexington Square Lombard on Wednesday, November 13 at 2 p.m. Rusin formerly worked as an inspector for U.S. Customs, security director for Chicago Savings and Loan, and a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) before retiring locally and accepting a position as evening security guard for Lexington Square Lombard.

Justice for Dallas is a fictional account based on the real life murder of a family in 1984. As an ATF officer, Rusin investigated the crime and it haunted him for years "It was an unbelievable investigation from beginning to end and I just had to write about it," said Rusin. "I worked on the book for seven years." It was published last month, and is available on amazon.com as well as on www.markrusin.com
