ABOUT THIS BOOK
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 truth the more Joel and Melody realise that their involvement is far from coincidental.
A quirky and unique new series with a difference, THE CRAZY SEASON by Jim Ody is a must-read for crime fiction and thriller fans alike.
Joel Baxter's world was torn apart when an accident claimed the life of his daughter and left his wife languishing away on life support for months on end. He needs something to fill his days and occupy his mind so when he gets an email talking about a cursed town, he decides to look into it (after all, he is known for solving the strange and the unusual). But nothing in the town of Black Rock is quite what it seems and even with the help of his friend, Melody, there are many twists and turns along the way. And it soon becomes apparent that Joel was meant to be involved with this case from the very beginning ...
Unconventional in the terms of a typical thriller, THE CRAZY SEASON draws the reader in with a fresh plotline and eccentric characters that burrow easily into your heart. I enjoyed getting to know Joel, and Melody brings that burst of colour and vibrancy that is missing from Joel's life. The cursed town and the secrets that exist in Black Rock are all excellently woven throughout the story so that the reader is kept on their toes, and there is truly never a dull moment in this book, which is no mean feat.
Engaging characters and a story with an excellent thrill factor, THE CRAZY SEASON by Jim Ody is definitely a series that I want to continue, and I look forward to the next installment.
For 10 years Jim wrote for a number of websites reviewing and interviewing bands in his own unique way, as well as contributing dark poems and comedic features.
He writes dark psychological/thrillers that have endings that you won’t see coming, and favours stories packed with wit. If you look closely, all of his books are connected...
He has written 12 books, released and re-released by a number of publishers. He has also contributed to over a dozen anthologies. He's the author of the popular Hudson Bell series, and his new book 'Little Miss Evil' will be released on Halloween 2020. Look out for his book 'The Crazy Season' which is due out early 2021!
Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd. When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife and three beautiful children in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.
