During the early days of the Cold War, a man battles combat fatigue haunted by a past of murder and romance he doesn't remember.
In 1956, the dead are cropping up on the Jersey coast and military veteran Joe Sinclair is on the short-list of suspects. It could all just be a heightened sense of paranoia, but the wounds on his hands don't match the ones in his head. Newsprint aspirations run deep. So does the red ink on redacted files. Joe is targeted on multiple fronts for his connection to the murdered soldiers. His true love, the one he remembers, tries to help him through the combat fatigue as he pushes her further away. Gold star wife Kelsey Halliday faced hell once. She doesn't need protection against his fractured demons. Coming out of two wars and an economic downturn, cigarettes light in the cold and switchblade bodies fall. Spinning tires and swaying hips collide, leaving Joe to battle his "Shotglass Memories," learning how to keep the wolves at bay.
"If you like writing that isn't formula and lets the reader discover the story, then this is for you. If you've ever read authors like JAMES LEE BURKE, CHUCK PALAHNUIK or DENNIS LEHANE, you'll appreciate evocative writing that is a good story, well told, that is out of the box. If you 'got' TRUE DETECTIVE and appreciated the ending then check out SHOTGLASS MEMORIES!" -GERMAINE JAMES, "Professional Writer and Consultant" "The BEAUTIFUL, ATMOSPHERIC PROSE really gives a unique feel to SHOTGLASS MEMORIES and makes it challenging without being intimidating or jarring. Both the mystery and the way it is implemented in the narrative are ENGAGING and UNIQUE." -BENOIT LELIEVRE, Dead End Follies
