John Fulghum Mysteries presents neo-nior short stories dedicated to the Private Investigator, John Fulghum, that just happens to be a decent, brilliant former war hero and gumshoe. Working out of an unlikely second-story office in Greater Boston, he solves crimes that no one else will handle because they fall outside the parameters or jurisdiction of normal police work. They’re dirty crimes, involving savage methods and little-understood societal forces most people would rather ignore than address.
In the process of solving his crimes, Fulghum, often at the risk of his life, works with his like-minded friends, Officer Nigel Pounce of Boston Homicide, Randy Mortenson-the ex-Special Forces soldier, or Kenneth Mander-the shadowy clandestine CIA operative.
Fulghum operates on the edge of the law and always beyond the limits of propriety. While his solutions do not extend to politically-correct society, they’re the ones that condone and often harbors the evil criminals that Fulghum hunts down. His solace for being a cleaner-up of filth lies in his racing forms, his Jack Daniels whisky, and his Marlboro cigarettes.
His life is a series of journeys and returns, but the center of his universe remains the same: honor and justice in a world without either.
