Book Title: Beat Bop A Varian Pike Mystery
Author Name: Jack DeWitt
Book Synopsis: When Varian Pike is offered a sketchy job for too much money, the results are predictable and catastrophic: He puts a new friend in danger and old enemies are out to get him. Beat Bop is a wild and bumpy ride from Wall Street to Pacific Street for Pike and his unlikely new partner, a doo-wop singing poetry quoting Vagabond Jester, Pike has to outrun gangsters, cops and a gang of Cobras. The result: dead bodies scattered all over southern New England and consequences he will never shake.
Author Bio: The second Varian Pike Mystery, Beat Bop, is being released with Hoochie Coochie Man through Cold Chair Books.
The Pike series began with Delicious Little Traitor in 2015 (Black Opal Books)., Bobbie Ann Mason wrote, “I love this book… The fifties culture is evoked with authenticity and not nostalgia. The war hovers in the background and reminds us when the fifties were. This is so engaging--the Northeast winter landscape, the brilliant dialog, the jazz track. Good stuff.”
