Meet Tucker Candle. Do it now, before they kill him... WOUNDED ANIMALS is a 2015 Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award Finalist.... While nursing some drinks after a terrible day at work, Candle spits out his rum and coke when a stranger across the bar turns water into wine. But did he? Or was it just an alcohol-induced trick of the light? This stranger has a warning for Candle: skip your planned business trip tomorrow. If you go, I won’t be able to protect you any longer. With a clear head the next morning, Candle resumes his normal life, working for a company that’s about to lay him off. That barroom huckster couldn’t have been magical, or prophetic. He was just some washed-up weirdo with a few tricks. But when Candle comes back from his trip to find his pregnant wife missing and a dead man’s blood seeping into his bathroom floor, the washed-up weirdo’s counsel doesn’t seem so foreign now. Cops, friends, family... Candle doesn’t trust anyone. As he searches for his wife, people around him keep turning up murdered. If he can’t find her and uncover the mystery driving the chaos, the stranger’s words might come true, after all. This novella (the first in the Whistleblower Trilogy) combines the action-packed chase thriller style with an amateur sleuth mystery, all told through protagonist Tucker Candle's unique and funny voice.

About the Author:

Jim Heskett was born in the wilds of Oklahoma, raised by a pack of wolves with a station wagon and a membership card to the local public swimming pool. Just like the man in the John Denver song, he moved to Colorado in the summer of his 27th year, and never looked back. Aside from an extended break traveling the world, he hasn't let the Flatiron mountains out of his sight. He fell in love with writing at the age of fourteen with a copy of Stephen King's The Shining. Poetry became his first outlet for teen angst, then later some screenplays, and eventually short and long fiction. In between, he worked a few careers that never quite tickled his creative toes successfully, and hasn't ever forgotten about Stephen King. You can find him currently huddled over a laptop at an undisclosed location in Colorado, dreaming up ways to kill beloved characters.

Review:

"The interesting characters, the action-packed scenes and unpredictable turns of events definitely keep the readers in turning the pages and guessing till the last page."-Shin Lae, The Bookish Ailurophile

"Heskett's ability to depict scenes with such rich details immerses the reader right in there with Tucker and his constant unfolding of truths and lies in his own life. Not one to mince words, Heskett masterfully creates a tale that moves along at a good clip."-Nick Rossi, Reading Other People

"The attention to detail and the author's style of writing made this amazing and totally captivated me. It's packed with suspense, action, intrigue and was at times emotionally intense." - Natalie Cleary, Book Lovers Life

"The story moves along quickly and kept me guessing, which I really like. It had humour, action and intrigue and I could have read on for much longer." -Laura Nazmdeh, Snazzy Books
