Overview

Albert hadn't suspected that the bus ride south from Massachusetts was taking him to another planet; and another murder.

Albert was not introspective by nature, but the whine of the wheels drew his thoughts into the past - probably because the sound reminded him of schooldays. For no particular reason the echo those thoughts dredged up was of one of his teachers saying “everybody’s special.” A classmate quipped, “Albert’s terminally special.”
He was probably right. Albert had never felt at home in the world; if something had nothing to do with music, he just didn't get it. He didn’t know why people did what they did, or said what they said, or thought what they thought, or were the way they were. And talking to them only made things worse. Not that he'd really ever noticed . . . until they started killing each other all around him. Suddenly, he had to understand, because one of the people they were trying to kill, was him.

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times Book Review - Charles Champlin
“(Albert novels) are an exercise in the comic style, defying disbelief. To his credit, Crossman brings it off nicely. Albert is clearly a survivor, likely to be heard from again.”
Publisher's Weekly - Staff Review
"Crossman…creates an offbeat, sympathetic sleuth who meanders innocently through this tale like a lamb through a pack of wolves. Bravo. Encore!"
Chicago Sun Times Book Review - Edward Gilbreth
"(Albert mysteries) ...shine with comic brilliance. Crossman has a gift for creating characters...who should show up in further adventures of Albert And there should be more!"

Meet the Author

David A. Crossman is a modern-day polymath who – in common with polymaths throughout time – has yet to be sufficiently beguiled by any one sphere of endeavor to apply himself to it exclusively. As a result, he’s a best-selling novelist, an award-winning lyricist and composer, a writer of short stories, screenplays, teleplays, poems, and children’s books, a television producer/director (also award-winning), a video producer, radio/television talent, award-winning graphic, computer graphic artist, advertising copywriter, videographer, publisher, music producer, musician, singer, performer and … well, you get the picture. He’s shiftless – in all things but his devotion to Barbara his wife of…well, let’s say over 35 years and leave it at that.

An intriguing investigator and an interesting puzzle created by a writer better than I first realized. Strongly encourage you read this. This author also writes juveniles which I would expect to be very good
