"Eccentricity at its finest in a detective story, and proof that a flawed protagonist can still earn sympathy." — Kirkus Reviews A doctor wants to euthanize his terminal patients. A disgraced journalist wants a better job than flogging tours of crime scenes. The tour business is dying. There aren’t enough murders in this sleepy town to draw a crowd. A good serial killer would help. So begins "Mr. Mayhem," the new crime thriller from Jeff Widmer, journalist and author of "Peak Season," a novel Kirkus Reviews calls “an entertaining mystery romp.” For a man known only as Brinker, the trouble begins when he’s fired for reporting his publisher’s DUI. Reduced to working PR for a funeral home and its trolley tour of murder sites, Brinker despairs of ever restoring his pride, or his bank account. His addiction to prescription medication fuels his rage. When his doctor asks for a hand in dispatching hopeless patients, Brinker hires a wildly successful assassin named Angel, who brings chaos and fame to this backwoods town. But as Angel’s demands soar with the body count, Brinker wonders whether he’ll become the latest addition to his own list.

About the Author:

As a former journalist with Dow Jones/Ottaway, Jeff Widmer covered construction of America’s first space shuttle and broke the story of the nationwide independent truckers’ strike. He is the author of the CW McCoy crime series ("Peak Season") set in Southwest Florida as well as several works of nonfiction, including "The Spirit of Swiftwater" and "Riding with the Blues," a behind-the-scenes look at the Sarasota (Florida) Police Department. His articles have appeared in publications ranging from "National Geographic World" to "US Airways" to "Advertising Age." His blog about the writing life appears regularly at jeffwidmer.com.

Review:

"The story is somber but self-assured, like a film noir with a stylized, shadowy atmosphere. Widmer (Riding with the Blues, 2015, etc.) rounds out Brinker by outfitting him with snazzy dialogue. Eccentricity at its finest in a detective story, and proof that a flawed protagonist can still earn sympathy.
                                                                                                                        -- Kirkus Reviews

Jeff Widmer takes you on a wild ride in the murderous tour bus in a uniquely dark and twisted story that manages to touch on euthanasia, medical ethics, addiction, greed, sleaze, family ties that bind, sex, scintillation, and more. And then there's Brinker. . . .
                                                                  -- Louise Machinist, author of My House Our House
