Allusion Books has launched a new crime series from author Jeff Widmer. Mr. Mayhem marks the first of the books starring a defrocked journalist named Brinker, who find that in this economy, even a serial killer needs an agent.
When his doctor asks for help in euthanizing terminal patients, Brinker hires an assassin named Angel, who brings chaos and fame to the sleepy resort town in Pennsylvania. But as Angel’s demands soar with the body count, Brinker wonders whether he’ll become the latest addition to his own list
In trade paperback and e-book formats, Mr. Mayhem will soon be available as an audiobook.
Kirkus Reviews calls Jeff Widmer’s debut novel Peak Season “An entertaining mystery romp.” Of its lead character, CW (Candace) McCoy, and the Southwest Florida setting, the publication says, “CW is a great character. Widmer has a great sense of place; he easily brings the town of Spanish Point and its colorful cast of characters to life.”
