★★★★★ STARS 
“Caddywampus is a mystery spell-binder and cauldron of instability that will keep you awake. It takes an insidious imagination to spin out a mind-blowing adventure with a hair-raising beginning and a heart-stopping end. Victims die in truly awful, messy, accidental ways as they hurtle into oblivion and the gut-wrenching science behind them. Protagonist Lieutenant Baron Dunning faces fiendish situations involving murder, mayhem, religion, and international money laundering. Unique individuals compete for ownership of Woebegone Dunes Resort and a religious hermitage at Gravestone Castle in northeast Wisconsin. The cast of characters is dynamic, intelligent, sexy, and thoroughly entertaining.” —James Johnson, Bibliophile Book Worm. 

★★★★★ STARS 
“This is an extraordinarily riveting story that captivates and holds your attention. It is a creatively written detective mystery novel, and the suspense never lets up. I breathlessly turned the pages as the discovery process unfolded. Lieutenant Baron Dunning is bold and intelligent, but everything about the investigation is caddywampus—in disarray like a lopsided bicycle wheel. Deputy Sheriff Bud Light speaks as if he is chewing a wad of sticky toffee with loose dentures. Lady Vanessa is a seductive woman that would cause a bishop to spill his red wine and kick a hole in a stained-glass window. Antagonist Bo-Bo Bigelow is the world’s largest exporter of stolen oil and rare earth minerals. Father Feely is a corrupt priest. Exposure of the Royal Enouement Society will greatly inspire patent holders and budding entrepreneurs.” —Fraser Johnson, President of Psalm Entertainment 

★★★★★ STARS 

“The story begins with an electrifying, breath-taking, fast-moving opening, exposing sharp and clever integration of contemporary geopolitical situations. The action is electric, the descriptions are detailed, and the pace is unabated. The settings are inspirational, and the character descriptions are deep. Caddywampus is a non-stop thriller with wry smiles unexpectedly popping up—Dr. Whet Faartz? Seriously? The adventure makes the coastal edge of northeastern Wisconsin a dramatic must-see landscape destination. This mystery novel is the first book I’ve read cover to cover in the last five years.” —Ed Flaherty, Switzerland

From the Author

“Nothing contributes more to the amusement of the reader than the tempo of significant life events and the evolving vicissitudes of fortune, unpredictable circumstances that create the emotional ups and downs that we face every day.” Erik Martin

“Destiny is not always preordained. Life is about making choices. Our lives are the sum of all our choices, the bridges we cross, and the ones we burn. Our souls cast long shadows over many people, even after we are gone. Fate, luck, and providence are consequences of our freedom of choice, not the determinants. When justice is served by following our principles, making good decisions brings us inner peace.”
