Plugging a Friend’s Work

I’ve mentioned my colleague John Carenen’s work before — his first novel, Signs of Struggle, was an interesting balance of the tough guy, the amateur detective, and Christianity, and more essentially, a very good read. If you haven’t read it, you should.

And besides, it’ll be a nice warm-up for the second book in what is now a series. A Far Gone Night has been released, and Thomas O’Shea is back in small-town Iowa, facing mayhem and other distractions while he continues to rebuild his life. You should read it, even though John’s Iowa Hawkeyes edged my beloved Ball State Cardinals last Saturday. I’m no sore loser, and I’d bet John’s new book is a winner.
