Morris Shannon is hired to solve a ten-year-old murder and discovers the clues hidden in an obscure Bruce Springsteen song. Who could cause such terror that one witness hides herself away in a mental hospital, and another fakes her own death? The answer lies in Candy's Room but will Morris and Shoddy ever get sober enough to work it all out?
Can Morris and Shoddy solve the mystery? All will be revealed in this new Penny Detective story, but as usual, not until the final page.Warning: This book will not be a life-changing experience
Fans of intellectual literature should look away now, or try something more classical. All Penny Detective books contain no messages, big words, or complicated plots, but they will, hopefully, while away a couple of hours and entertain. If you are still not convinced; the terrific thing about Amazon is that you can read the first couple of chapters for free. Believe me; these books don't get any better or worse after that.John Tallon Jones (author)
John Tallon Jones is to literary intellectuals what John Milton (Paradise Lost) and Leo Tolstoy were, to having a 'good laugh.' This is disposable fiction at the sharp end, nothing more.What are people saying about the Penny Detective?Liverpool Echo
'Take Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe, and Inspector Clouseau rolled into one, and you have the Penny Detective. This is a highly imaginative five-star read.'Post Online
'The author has made the main character, Morris Shannon, vulnerable and sarcastic and I can relate to this, as will most readers. The creation of an alcoholic, but brilliant, sidekick is inspirational, and this alone makes it different to anything else you will ever read.'Goodreads
