Hot off the Press

Lost on a PageJoe Slade is a detective with a hot lead and a warm gun. He no longer believes in happy-ever-afters, but the jury's still out on plot twists. Good thing. He's about to discover the mother of all twists that will cure his doldrums like pliers to a toothache: Joe Slade is not real. He's the protagonist of a series of hardboiled mysteries. And when Joe finds out that all his strife has been in the name of boosting book sales, there will be hell to pay. The Kindle version of Lost on a Page, by David E. Sharp, is available on Amazon (print version coming soon). See more member books in our library.
