Overview

Shunned because of his role in the infamous "Greenwich Massacre," PI Varian Pike finds himself on the outs with just about everybody, but, when buildings all over Stamford start exploding, Pike has to find a way to join the hunt for the bomber. After he partners with a mysterious British insurance investigator and a beautiful American psychologist, the team discovers that the bombs are not being planted by a "mad" bomber as everybody thinks but by a man on a mission who calls himself "Hoochie Coochie Man." The discovery of his true identity reveals far more than his real name.

About the Author

Jack DeWitt is a poet, a chronicler of car culture as well as a novelist. In addition to the Varian Pike series, DeWitt has also written extensively about automobilia, particularly hot rods for the American Poetry Review. His essay on the Doane Spencer Deuce was selected as one of the notable essays of 2009 in The Best American Essays 2010, edited by Christopher Hitchens and Robert Atwan. His Cool Cars, High Art: The Rise of Kustom Kulture (University Press of Mississippi, 2003) was a Streetrodder Hall of Fame selection. A section of the book was reprinted in the Hot Rod Reader
Almost Grown, the latest of his four books of poems, published by Paper Kite Press in 2008, is about growing up in Stamford, CT, a city that has been the focus, some might call it an obsession, of his work for some time. About Almost Grown, Stephen Berg, editor of the American Poetry Review said, "there are only a few people working in this utterly unadorned, unsung blue-collar vein, and Jack DeWitt is the master of the genre."
He has a PhD in English from the University of Connecticut. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA where he taught for four decades. He moved to the Cape with Judy DeWitt in 2016.
