Joel Baxter is infamous for solving weird and bizarre cases that others avoid. So, when he receives an email from a teenage boy Tim saying his town is cursed, he cannot turn it down.

“…I will more than likely be dead when you read this. There is nothing I can do about it. It’s the curse, and we’ve hit The Crazy Season.” Every 20 years, there are a handful of unexplained teenage deaths and it’s started again.

With the help of his straight-talking friend Melody, they set out to get to the bottom of the alleged curse. Everybody in Black Rock has secrets and nobody wants to speak.

The closer they get to the truth the more Joel and Melody realise that their involvement is far from coincidental.


Early reviews for The Crazy Season

“…all of the characters were just so unique, full of life, and colorful. The writing is also so richly UK with local slang and dialects which made it even more entertaining for me. I absolutely did not want this one to end, and can’t wait for the next.” – Goodreads Reviewer

“I enjoyed the humour and banter between characters which really helped bring them to life. I hope this is continued on into a series as it has real potential.” – Goodreads Reviewer

“I loved this book. Some real, laugh out loud moments (naked yoga, for example) and the chemistry between Joel and Melody is great, you can imagine them as your mates. Great start to a new series…” – dds_book_reviews
