Riassunto: First-time private investigator Eddie Greene is having a bad weekend. It’s about to get worse ... When he finds the slab-cold body of his first client, he knows something’s up – he only spoke to her fifteen minutes earlier. Free-wheeling, swash-buckling, trash-talking Eddie is not just out of place in a humdrum northern town. He’s out of depth on his first case, out of funds from a now deceased client and out of favour with Weighton’s big society. As Friday night slides into Saturday morning, each twist in the case turns a bad situation worse. The police want him for murder, the local crime boss wants him dead, the mayor wants him out of town and his girlfriend wants him out of her life. Increasingly desperate, Eddie takes on all-comers in a barnstorming bid to crack the case and clear his name. And somewhere between all the froth and fury, his affections are reclaimed by the girl who got away – but will she abide ‘til Monday? “Great fun with some cracking jokes – it reminded me of the Lynne Truss serial on Radio 4.” Sue Fletcher, Deputy MD, Hodder & Stoughton “Faultless – engaging, visual and fast-paced. Lots of action and a strong sense of tongue-in-cheek.” Caroline Smailes, Harper Collins author, ‘In Search of Adam’. “It’s like ‘Film Noir’ meets ‘Phoenix Nights’!” Mark Roman, author, 'Ultimate Inferior Beings'. “A wonderfully distinctive voice – fresh and idiosyncratic.” Carl Ashmore, author, ‘The Time Hunters’ series.
About the Author: I live in Cheshire, England and started writing as soon as I could jab a pencil at a piece of paper. I wrote my first proper story about a huge tsunami hitting my primary school (ahead of my time, I know!), which was imaginative given that we lived 30 miles inland. I killed off the headmaster's daughter at the end, while saving family and friends, which of course led to my first bad review. I wrote my first novel in my late twenties - a rites of passage type of thing - and it was terrible. After that I wrote the opening to a Chandleresque detective story transposed to Northern England but gave up after seven chapters. Then I got married, had a family and didn't write another creative word for twelve years. My return to writing was a story for my children - 'Warwick The Wanderer and the Battle of the Bands' - and this will soon be my second book published through Amazon. After another lean period, I went back to my detective story, re-wrote the opening, got some invaluable feedback from the Authonomy community and spent a year completing the full manuscript. And so it came to pass that 'Weekend in Weighton' was finally published. Hope you enjoy it. Oh, one more thing, it's been emotional, Snapperheads! Terry
