The Storm Killer

WriteOn The Water Press
2

Time: 1935.  Place: New York City.  Crime beat reporter Jim Locke gets sucked into a quagmire of death, deceit, and danger when his actress sister is murdered – and he becomes the prime suspect.  When he uncovers a pattern of similar murders, he is convinced that a serial killer is on the loose. But the police aren’t buying it, and it’s up to Jim to stop the madman.  The hunt takes him from the grimy streets and smoke-filled bars of Manhattan to deceptively laid-back Key West, just as a killer storm bears down on the island. 

THE STORM KILLER has it all: hard-boiled narrative, gripping suspense, period detail, an unlikely hero battling his inner demons, and a stunning conclusion that you won’t see coming.  Highly recommended!--Miriam Auerbach, author of Dirty Harriet Rides Again 

Mike Jastrzebski's stunning historical debut takes readers back into the hard-boiled world of Chandler and Hammett  -- and brings Ernest Hemingway back to life in a book as big as the man himself.  The Storm Killer,  a top grade thriller with a heavy dose of noir, hurtles you from New York to Key West at a pace that will leave you breathless.--Christine Kling, author of Surface Tension, Cross Current, Bitter End, and Wrecker's Key

About the author

 In 2003 my wife, Mary, and I moved aboard our 36-foot sailboat, Rough Draft. We brought the boat down the inland river system from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where we lived for two years docked at a small marina, the setting for Dog River Blues.

 After rescuing and repairing our boat from Hurricane Katrina, we then sailed to Florida where we spent three months living at a mooring in Key West. From there we cruised up the east coast to Ft. Lauderdale where we lived on the boat and I wrote for six years. 

We hoisted the sails once again in the spring of 2012, traversed the Gulf Stream, and explored the Abaco Islands until hurricane season sent us back to Florida. We spent hurricane season in Cape Canaveral, and then in January of 2013 we sailed back to the Bahamas where we lived at anchor for three months basking in the sun, fighting the elements, and writing.

On this most recent trip I completed the first draft of Stranded Naked Blues, the third book in my Wes Darling Mystery series, which is set in the Bahamas and is now available. My other books include Key Lime Blues and Dog River Blues, my two Wes Darling Mysteries, and my historical thriller, The Storm Killer. My psychological thriller, Mind Demons, was written before we moved aboard Rough Draft.
