Description: After surviving a bad experience in his hometown, P.I. Frank Johnson moves away to Scarab, West Virginia, drawn by the promise of its leisurely days and the lure of its tranquil leafy mountains. Instead, while relaxing, what he finds is a Stinger rocket exploding over his cabin. The bestselling The Blue Cheer, originally published by the notable crime fiction imprint Point Blank/Wildside, has garnered praise from the San Diego Tribune-Union (“an unpredictable story filled with complex characters”) to a starred review at Booklist (“top-of-the-line hard-boiled fare”). In Troglodytes, when American diplomat Sylvester Mercedes flies into Ankara, Turkey, on what’s supposed to be a normal business trip, he mysteriously vanishes from his hotel room. With her husband now missing for more than two weeks, prominent socialite Lois Mercedes hires Frank to track down Sylvester. Frank manages to track the clues to the kidnapping down into the troglodytes’ subterranean cities in Cappadocia. And that’s when things really get interesting.
