Read Kaye George's new novel Choke

Reading Kaye George’s Choke, her long-time-comin’ first published novel, was a breath of new idiosyncratic characters, small-town realism and personal mission. Here’s my synopsis and review of Choke, written by an Agatha nominated writer, well known for her short stories, and now, novel. I hope to read many more sequels to this fine debut. E. B. Davis


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.’”

Operandi, modus

   “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.

A very fun read and a great study in characterization. I was in awe.

I enjoyed Kaye's short stories and look forward to reading CHOKE.

It sounds like a hoot.

I loved Kaye's book and hope that everyone buys and reads it. It took her a long time to get published. She didn't rush out and self-publish, which I think is a mistake. When you read the book, you'll see that she is an experienced and gifted writer, who has honed her craft and paid her dues. My hat is off to her (especially that big straw one I wear for happy hour at the beach!)

I admire anyone who can write humor and make it work. Hats off to Kaye. I wish you much success.

Thanks for the kind words! Elaine, talk about talent. I LOVE your poem/ad/tribute. I hope you guys who haven't read CHOKE will like it (also hope you buy it, of course :)).
