LOOKING FOR TROUBLE: Mark Dalton isn’t sure if he finds trouble or if trouble finds him. But ever since his wife traded him in for a prettier model, and he traded in his Private Eye business for a Peterbilt, it seems to be everywhere he goes. In this collection of loosely interwoven who-dunnits, Edo van Belkom introduces Mark Dalton, Trucker Detective. Whether he’s scooping up pretty hitchhikers with secrets, getting back goods stolen right out from under his nose, making a shady repair shop pay, or solving a racially charged, post-9/11 murder, Dalton is one busy trucker. And truth is, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
