What People Are Saying

Marshall Karp
"What a terrific first novel. Randy Rohn has created a bang-up page-turner with three-dimensional characters, laugh out loud dialogue, and enough body parts to make Silence of the Lambs look like a snack."--(Marshall Karp, bestselling author of The Rabbit Factory and other Lomax and Biggs novels)
Ronald Tierney
"Sex, blood and rock 'n roll. Lots of blood. Well-drawn characters are caught in a gruesome nightmare. Rohn's Hang on Sloopy is seductively easy reading, funny and terrifying."--(Ronald Tierney,bestselling author of the Deets Shanahan mysteries)

    Wow! This is a real page-turner!

    I loved this book. It was fast and funny and extremely scary. It's about a corrupt cop, small-town private eye and the most heinous murderer in modern literature.

    Meet Louis Lewis, small-town private investigator, aficionado of juke boxes, 60s garage rock and hanging out with the guys at his favorite bar. A high school girlfriend whom he hasn't seen in years walks back into his life. Her real name is Susan Louise Petrie, he calls her Sloopy, after the song. She has been getting packages in the mail, filled with animal parts. She wants to find out why and who sent them. Louie agrees to help. As he uncovers more and more clues the romance re-ignites with Sloopy. Also, the danger, as a maniacal killer is on the loose making mincemeat (literally) of prominent figures in the state. This book has it all, mystery, suspense, terror, a little romance and a good dollop of humor.

    Rohn writes like early Elmore Leonard. This is a thriller that'll keep you hooked until the very end.
