Trouble in Bay Town by Alan M. Blank
Sonny Knight is a private investigator in the heart of Bay Town. A man of strong moral principles, a sense of justice and he doesn’t back down when he sees something is wrong. Miss Hortense Oglethorpinger is getting paid every Tuesday night to perform at Bay Town’s classiest joint, Go Fly A Kite. The only problem is, it’s a performance that no one else gets paid for. Is it a coincidence that on each night Miss Oglethorpinger performs, a woman disappears without a trace? Sonny needs to figure out what one has to do with the other. Grab your Panama hat and follow Sonny Knight as he unravels, what might be, the biggest scandal in Bay Town’s history.

“I loved the story and I love Sonny Knight”
Five Star Review on Amazon by Kathleen K. Marrs
I loved the story and I love Sonny Knight. The characters are truly characters and the origin of their names is, I’m sure, a story unto itself. Half way through I thought it must be over and solved and I wondered what the second half would be about but nope – you got me, Alan Blank, it veered off in another direction and continued seamlessly. Great read. Can’t wait for the next one.
About the Author
I am a first time author and I couldn’t be more proud of my book, Trouble in Bay Town. I found that writing this story has only spurred me on to writing another with some of the same characters.
I love reading murder mysteries and courtroom dramas. I literally bought my first Sherlock Holmes book (A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four and some short stories from Adventures collected in one book) because I liked the cover. I judged a book by its cover! I thought I’d have a laugh and challenge myself to keep count of the number of times Holmes would say, “Elementary, my dear Watson.” I was disappointed when I found none so I bought another. Nothing. Another. Same. I became enthralled and hopelessly hooked when the sum total was zero.
I later discovered Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot. Later still, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Mickey Spillane. (Still working my way through Spillane).
I’ve enjoyed countless hours immersing myself in this genre and I thought I’d like to join my heroes by writing my own story truly with imitation being the sincerest form of flattery in my heart.
I hope you enjoy my book and if you do, please tell your friends. And if not, well, tell your enemies
