An exciting new approach to detective novels, 15interconnected short stories involving a different kindof private eye. The Greer Agency is 75k words of gritty detective fiction presented in 15 separate butconnected stories. The reader follows the develop-ment of private detective Mike Greer, the only PI inthe Altoona, PA phone book. It’s tough to make a liv-ing in a decaying old railroad town, but with the helpof an anonymous benefactor, Greer lands some in-teresting cases that he solves with guts and determi-nation. Throughout the stories, his budding romancewith Susan grows. Eventually they realize they areright for each other. Readers will find Mike Greer anaccessible everyman with luck, pluck, smarts and ahost of interesting friends. He finds his way into andout of problems large and small. Greer narrates thestories in a refreshing and original voice. Each storyhas its own plot and can stand on its own but, as thebook progresses, the mysteries pile up and the plotsget more complex until the explosive last story. MikeGreer is a protagonist with a low tolerance for bullshitand an easy touch for the emotional pleas of thedowntrodden. He works alone and struggles againstan uncaring world. But throw no pity party for theman, he will have none of it. His melancholy is tightlywrapped inside his tough guy exterior, and pity justbounces off as he walks away, down the dark side-walks of Altoona into the next story.
