-- opening to Midnight Lullaby
Another "indie" private eye, former State Trooper HENRY MALONE makes his debut in the e-book-only Midnight Lullaby (2015). He's a cranky kinda guy even on his best days -- the rest of the time he comes off as just a cold, unpleasant S.O.B.
So it's probably a good thing he lives out on the edge of town in Parker County, West Virginia, deep in coal country, content to be left alone, living on cynicism, painkillers and a disabilty pension (for his bum knee).
But wouldn't you know it? Trouble always comes a-calling. And watching the old crab swing into gear was actually more fun than I'd expected.
It may be a tad overwritten, but it's definitely a cut above most of his self-pubbed rivals. Let's keep an eye on this Hannah guy.
