Mr. Magic: A Brinker Novel by Jeff Widmer

Brinker’s back. Can the advertising world survive? Brinker has lost his magic. The agency’s CEO wants him to ace the competition. His former girlfriend wants him in detox. And as rival advertising executives disappear, an ambitious state trooper wants him in jail. If this keeps up, the PR whiz who turned a serial killer into a national brand may have to vanish himself. Throw in toxic waste, a nude car wash and a gun-toting presidential candidate and the czar of PR will have to spin some potent magic to escape the snare of sex, lies and greed that threatens to destroy his job, his sanity and the love of his life. From the author of Mr. Mayhem and the CW McCoy series of crime novels comes Mr. Magic, the second outing for Brinker, the defrocked journalist famous for sex, satire and PR events that push the boundaries of legality and taste. The novels have garnered praise from reviewers and readers alike. Louise Machinist, author of My House Our House, says of Mr. Mayhem, says “Jeff Widmer takes you on a wild ride in the murderous tour bus in a uniquely dark and twisted story that touches on euthanasia, addiction, sex and more. And then there's Brinker. . . .” Kirkus Reviews calls Peak Season, the first novel in Widmer’s Florida series, “an entertaining mystery romp. CW is a great character—a noir detective trying to outrun her own past, suffering no fools along the way, [trying] to keep her cool as she solves a case of embezzlement, kidnapping, and murder in the Florida heat.”
Review: Wow! This is one fast paced, heart pounding read! Exciting from the first page to the last. I've never read anything that felt like such a whirlwind before, but one that left me thinking for a long time after the last page. I need to read more right away :)
