Book Review: Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of Fire

Mainstream humor with a dash of mystery… A throwback to Hollywood’s film noir reporters, Jock Stewart is out of touch with the looming world of digital journalism.

While he goes out of his way to mock those in authority by pretending to kowtow to them, he admits he does his best work by “being an asshole.” A mix of Don Rickles and Don Quixote, Stewart is the man for the job when the skirts are up and the chips are down…

Hard-boiled reporter Jock Stewart wakes up on the morning after the Star-Gazer office party with a hangover and an old flame in his bed and he cuddles up with the mayor’s wife in the back seat of a 1953 Desoto. Between these defining moments, he investigates the theft of the mayor’s race horse Sea of Fire and the murder of his publisher’s girl friend, Bambi Hill.

Stewart discovers the truth for his news stories via an interview style based on lies, pretense and audacious behavior…

Fast-moving & Fun read. It’s Film Noir for the 21st century

The story is as interesting as its title suggests. How does a Sea of Fire go missing? Easily enough if it’s the name of a race horse. Jock Stewart is an old school journalism kind of reporter, cut from the same cloth as Sam Spade and other film noir types. He’s got sarcasm oozing from every pore, and as often as not, it gets him into lots of trouble with just about everyone, which makes for lots of plot twists and turns. Plenty of memorable characters reside in Jock’s home town, like a perpetually doughnut-eating cop by the name of Kruller. Those kind of little word plays and the intentional use of old clichés will make you laugh out loud. Jock projects himself as a hard core kind of guy, but deep down he’s a softie. If you’re looking for something different to entertain you, check out Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of FIre.
