Giveaway ~ A Detailed Man by David Swinson


  • Paperback: 344 pages
  • Publisher: Dymaxicon 
  • ISBN-10: 0982866976
  • Genre:  Mystery/Thriller

Half of DC Police Detective Ezra Simeon's face is immobilized from a persistent case of Bell's Palsy–he must drink through a straw and eat carefully to avoid chewing through his own cheek. He has been detailed from robbery to the cold case department while he heals. "How odd to dream with one eye open, like having one foot in reality," Sim muses in the dark, bluesy vein that is typical of his Chandler-esque narration. "That's what makes dreaming dangerous and why I moved my gun farther from the bed." Detective Simeon's half-frozen world begins to heat up when a friend from his Academy days drops dead of a heart attack, and Sim is tapped to replace him, detailed now to homicide, where he inherits the high-profile case of a murdered escort he alone thinks may be the victim of a serial killer.

About the author ~ 

David Swinson spent the 1980s as a punk rock music promoter and film producer, booking acts like Social Distortion and the Red Hot Chili Peppers into clubs and producing spoken word events with Hunter S. Thompson, John Waters and Jim Carroll. He produced the cult classic film Roadside Prophets, starring John Doe of X and Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys.

In 1994, Swinson returned to his hometown of Washington DC and joined the police force, where he worked robbery, homicide and narcotics and became one of the city’s most decorated detectives. A Detailed Man is Swinson’s first novel.
