Greg Alamos is almost a private investigator. The difference: all his clients are dead. The spirits contact him through his dreams and hire him to complete a task, avenge them, inform their survivors or whatever. It's not always a pleasant experience.

Alamos has just been “hired” by the spirit of a wealthy art collector. He obtained what he thought was an original Picasso print, only to learn it was a forgery. He wants Alamos to find the person who scammed him and recoup what he paid and return that money to his heirs. It should have been relatively easy, but it soon proves to be just the opposite.

As he investigates, Alamos becomes embroiled in a plot to seize the presidency via the ballot box. A cabal of rich investors have a plan that is perfectly legal, but also perfectly possible. And no one dare get in their way.

Idiot Savant is a mixture of the paranormal and political intrigue, with the fully-drawn characters, rich dialogue and surprising plot twists award-winning author Patrick Welch is known for. Greg Alamos is the type of “hero” you won't quickly forget, and Idiot Savant will make you a fan of the author if you aren't one already.
