One Hot January – J. Conrad Guest

Standard

J. Conrad Guest 039Cynical, sarcastic, wary and somewhat paranoid, one might even say Joe January’s jaded. He’s very much a man’s man and enjoys being single and playing the field. So, it’s a bit of a puzzler why, when he meets Melissa MacIntyre, he doesn’t jump at the chance to bed her. Instead, he does his best to rid himself of both Melissa and her brother whose story of their missing father fails to elicit any sympathy from the hard bitten January.

Imagine Joe’s surprise when six years later, he meets up with Melissa once again. Not only has her father never been found, but her brother, Benjamin Junior, has gone missing as well. Mysterious notes and a strange package found their way to Miss MacIntyre’s possession and she’s come to Joe January once again for help.

Set in the 1940’s, the backdrop of WW II infiltrates the story of “One Hot January”. Pursued by Nazi spies, Joe, Melissa and his friend Lance must find why her father disappeared and what happened to Benjamin Junior before it’s too late.

“One Hot January” is a cleverly written sci-fi detective story for all mystery lovers.
