-- 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 helps that his good pal (and AA sponsor) Woody is along for the ride.
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.
