Read Kaye George's new novel Choke
Can’t put it down because Immy’s mom is in trouble, and they go on the lam.
“Immy had never seen her mother look so demoralized and bedraggled. ‘It’s part of my plan to get you out of here, Mother, my plan to spring you.’”
“’Darling,’ she whispered back, ‘they think I killed Hugh. I really think that they really think that.’ There was fear in her wide eyes.”
Hope you like these lines as much as I did.
“’We have to go to Sonic,’ Immy said, ‘so I don’t get made.’”
“’Immy you won’t get laid just by going to lunch with me.’”
“Hugh Duckworthy was found murdered this morning. Someone gagged him to death. A package of raw sausage was stuffed down his throat.”
Karmic justice implicates other characters when Immy inadvertently solves two crimes while trying to solve the murder. Sh*t happens, but then maybe there really is a reason behind randomness.
Every good detective knows how to disguise himself, and The Moron’s Compleat PI Guidebook explains how, but Immy’s disguises get her into continuous trouble.
Buy the paperback and find out for yourself why I liked it so much. Choke is available for purchase at:
Barnes and Nobel and Amazon.
Choke will be released in electronic format in June.
