Shelby Alexander returned to Serenity, Michigan seeking peace and slow living. Instead, he found an accelerated pitch into danger. After helping a dying woman his encounter into small town crime builds quickly into greater and more frightening danger than he’s prepared to deal with alone. Relying on his skill as an investigator and his long-time friend, Mack, he set out to solve the mystery of why an unfortunate woman was murdered, and why other people are dying in the once peaceful town.
A cleverly structured tale of small town crime expanding to a more ruthless business. Read how Shelby takes control and solves the case.
This is the first book in The Shelby Alexander Thriller Series and I can’t wait for the next! Shelby is an ex-boxer and a former fixer, who has retired to his old hometown of Serenity, Michigan. All he wants is a little peace and what he gets is a young woman who dies in his arms and a drug war in his backyard between the local Ellis family who have always been in trouble with the law and a new group trying to take over from Detroit.
This thriller takes off right from the start. It is extremely fast paced and full of action for its short length. In between the bullets flying, you get to know Shelby and a great cast of memorable secondary characters. Shelby has a bartender girlfriend, Carly, who is 30 years younger and the same age as his daughter. He has a long-time friend, Jerry “Mack” McIntyre, who is a retired Detroit policeman. Jerry’s wife, Gloria is best friends with Shelby’s ex-wife, Helen. The Ellis clan is savage and the local sheriff is questionable.
Craig A. Hart has written a debut to this series that satisfies on every level! Action packed, a cast of characters that are colorful and three dimensional, a unique setting, and a protagonist that I want to continue to follow.
Thank you very much Mr. Hart for allowing me to read an eARC of this book for free for an honest review! I can’t wait for more from Shelby!
Our hero lives somewhere out in the north woods, small town America, with an assortment of strange people. One day, a woman turns up in his yard, frozen to death. Who did it?
Soon, he's under attack from all sides, shot at threatened, and ignored by police.
There's some major flaws with the plot. First, he's shot at but doesn't take it too seriously.
Then his sort of girlfriend is 30 and he's 60. Unless he's won the lottery, I don't think so.
His ex cop friend comes to help and they both get shot at, then have a drink. "Looks like they're gone".
But, he's glib, not overly so, and I found the book fun to read.
I'd do another, thank you.
The drugs background history in the hero's neck of the woods is particularly interesting since it's not on overload, just believable. I'm female and the writer and his hero are older men, but that it no way pulled me out of the novel. Sure, I could stand off and say, "hah, older male writing about older male" but so what? It's a great tale with just the right amount of research to keep it intriguing without bludgeoning the reader with facts and figures.
Another positive thing about SERENITY: it's layout is terrific. Expertly done. I'm sick of reading e-books where you can't tell what they're talking about because the font and paragraphing are inferior.
All-in-all, a good quality, undervalued story. Look forward to the next in the series, Mr. Hart.
