Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Pearson Holmes disappeared a long time ago, leaving behind a potentially valuable safety deposit box. Freddy the Freegan is the first to stumble across the mystery, but soon a whole cast of characters is out to find the key and claim the treasure before time runs out and the contents are forfeit to the state. Who will solve the riddle of the Squatter with a Lexus?

Clovis

When I was a kid we used to tell “saltbush stories”—tales that instead of ending with a bang, just fizzled out leaving the listener wondering if he’d missed the point—that was the joke. Squatter with a Lexus is the ultimate ‘saltbush’—right down to the intriguing title. A cast of wonderfully eccentric characters all well developed, mostly unlovely, all believable. The very short chapters offering glimpses of the people involved in this tale are an excellent device. I was thoroughly entertained and impatiently awaited the denouement with mounting excitement. When it arrived I laughed aloud...it was the perfect ending to a very well-written yarn, in which I could find nothing offensive, but much to admire.


Eunice Fues

Wouldn't be bad if some of the offensive language was left out.

I've written a whole bunch of strange and wild short fictions and I've been giving them all away like candy. Who doesn't like free candy? The good thing is, if you like one, you'll probably like a lot of them, and if you don't, at least they were free!
