Sam Prichard

Created by David Archer

SAM PRICHARD may be a "Bestselling USA TODAY & Amazon" private eye, but he still gets calls from his mom, so kudos to him.

That, and some pretty breathless, James Patterson-style plotting and some savvy marketing and tireless promotion ("well over 1,000 five star reviews on Amazon") have apparently led this relatively generic action figure to, we're told, "quickly storming the charts."

But to make sure all bases are covered, the cast of characters has slowly expanded to include something for everyone: Prichard's sexy wife/partner, Indie, a mother-in-law, a cat and a daughter. As a detective, Sam's also surpisingly malleable, his cases veering from Reachesque saving of the world to John Sanford-like tracking down of serial killers to fronting a rock band as lead vocalist to solve a murder.

As "Kindle reviewer" put it, the author "can't write them fast enough for me. Keep them coming Mr Archer!" Given that's he's cranked out eight or so books in this series alone (he has another series -- about hit man Noah Wolf -- going as well) in about a year, I don't think he (or she) has much to worry about.
