Where in the world is Stacey Ashton?
Stacey herself told her employer that she was leaving for Philadelphia on personal business.
But Melanie Foster suspects that the girl has run off to Florida with her husband instead.
Enter private detective and self-proclaimed unscrupulous bastard Brett Cornell who attempts to discover Stacey’s true whereabouts, only to learn that she may actually have been murdered — and that the murder took place a lot closer to home.
In this fifth Brett Cornell detective novel set in the late 1980s, Brett finds himself pitted against a group of, particularly deceitful and unpredictable characters.
And at the same time, he is about to imperil those stunning Adonis-like features of his when he enters the boxing arena in a major bout that may very well turn out to be a life-changing experience for him.
“… This was a fun, light read that kept me smiling and engaged, and I’d definitely be interested in reading more of this series.”
(“ReaderGirl”, Goodreads, 4/5 Stars)
“… What I like most about
this novel is that while part of you is kind of laughing at Brett for
his tawdry, over-the-top behavior and attitude, the other half of you is
totally enjoying it and loving watching him get away with it! I
literally laughed out loud at so many parts… All
in all a delightful read, one that I think most people would enjoy.”
(Jesse, Goodreads, 4/5 Stars)
“HA! This book was awesome…Totally funny moments and witty dialogue made this book a really fun and different type of reading.”
(Claire, Goodreads, 5/5 Stars)
“. . .Some
of Brett’s one-liners had me laughing as I read along, and I think
people will really get a kick out of this book. I know I did. I’m
curious to read the rest of this series and see what capers my new
friend Brett gets into next!”

“Humour to kill for, a great read.”
Five Star Review on Amazon by Reggie
Full of tongue in cheek humour David D’Aguanno has written what I consider a very humorous and page turning story.
The main character Brett Cornell, a private detective is portrayed as an unscrupulous bastard, he progresses through the story in that manner and his love life is just as tumultuous.
Great read for any one looking for a side splitting funny story.
About the Author
I am a retired English teacher who got hooked on detective novels when I was an adolescent. Later on, during the 1980s, I began writing my own detective novels, all of them featuring a hard-boiled, unscrupulous character by the name of Brett Cornell.
Prospective readers may possibly need to be aware that the novels are written in a tongue-in-cheek style and are meant to be humorous in many respects, just so long as one doesn’t take Brett and his outrageous attitudes and behavior too seriously.
The badge that you see here was awarded on July 1, 2012, to my novel “BRETT ALWAYS WINS” as recognition of its being a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Review’s contest for Best Indie Book of 2012 (mysteries/thrillers category).
