Kindle eBooks, editorial articles and opinions by author Brian Meeks

1955_New York_Ad copyJan 1, 1955 Henry Wood is suffering greatly from a festive night of saying goodbye to 1954. His world is one of black and white, right and wrong, but his life is about to change and there will forever be shades of gray.

An average detective, with a passion for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Henry is about to be hired by a beautiful woman, to find her father and his journal. It seems simple enough, but when a second woman appears, wanting his services, to find the same journal, he suspects he might be in over his head. He’s right. They are the least of his problems. The local mafia boss, Tommy ‘The Knife’, wants the journal too. As long as it is missing, he is vulnerable, and the other bosses smell blood in the water.

Who can Henry trust? Henry has a mysterious benefactor that he has never met, but seems to have his best interest at heart. Will Henry take the help that is offered? Does he have a choice?

4.4 out of 5 Stars

One reviewer wrote:

“Whether you are a fan of classic detective novels or just someone looking for a good book to keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, this book will surprise and delight you. in Henry Wood, Brian Meeks has created a detective who superficially resembles Dashiell Hammett’s iconic Sam Spade, but crossed with Douglas Adam’s ironic Dirk Gently and Spider Robinson’s euphonic Sam Meade.

Meeks has a style that avoids many of the clichés so common to new detective novel writers, while paying wry homage to the classics of the genre. It is truly a pleasure to find a new writer who understands the craft of writing. It has been quite a while since I literally could not put a book down until I had finished it, but this one kept me going into the wee hours of the night.”

– Brian Hawthorne

Front Cover Time and Again Final copyFans of Dashiell Hammett, who long for days of Bogart and Bacall, will appreciate Henry Wood’s sleuthing.

1955, Manhattan, and Henry has just gotten the call. Mickey is dead. His long time mentor and friend, run down outside their favorite bar, The Dublin Rogue. It looks like a simple hit and run, but keen eyes notice there is only one empty parking spot on the street, and the pile of cigarette butts in the gutter tells a different tale. Somebody was waiting, but who?

A novel in black and white, it harkens back to the days before Google, cell phones, and computer data bases. Henry must use cunning to uncover the truth, because everyone connected to the case has an agenda. There is much sleuthing and just the slightest hint of science fiction hiding in the closet of Henry’s basement. All of it, though, is there to give him a chance to uncover the answers.

Take a journey back in time and see Manhattan as it was when the Yankees always seemed to win, and Brooklyn had Ebbets Field and the Dodgers. There is history, intrigue and hints at romance that will keep you turning page after page until it is time to flip off the light.

If you like a mystery, then Time & Again is for you.

Now For Sale on KindleThe third book in the Henry Wood Detective Series continues its genre busting mysteries with Perception. Fans of Sam Spade will enjoy Henry Wood, who is cut from the same cloth.

As spring winds down there is only one thing on Henry’s mind…baseball. Opening day, 1955, is just around the corner and foremost in Henry’s thoughts. He just wants to watch his beloved Brooklyn Dodgers and relax. Is that too much to ask?

The CIA, KGB, and a cabal of businessmen have their own agenda, and soon Henry stumbles into their world when he agrees to look into the open and shut case of suicide by Daniel Kupton.

If you like a mystery, then Perception is for you.
