The Holler Thief by Jim Heskett

These woods hide a body. Can a rookie gumshoe solve the murder before he ends up six feet under?

Harry Boukadakis is a little too old to start from scratch. The retired hacker launched his private eye business in the Ozarks to the sound of crickets. But a neighbor’s broken window and a box of stolen cigars bring a jingle to his doorbell, and his first real case.

While hunting down clues with bodyguard Serena Rojas in tow, Harry hits a snag when his prime suspect turns up dead. And when pistol-packing goons try to scare him away, Harry grits his teeth and rushes headfirst into hill country to find answers.

Will this self-made sleuth catch a killer or face a hail of bullets?

The Holler Thief is a thrilling and funny private eye mystery. If you like small-town suspense, high-tech toys, and more twists than you can shake a stick at, you’ll love Jim Heskett’s jaw-dropping tome.
