Long Description
An abortion doctor has been murdered in the Garden District. To be honest, that news ordinarily wouldn't bother Al Forte, a former SEAL. He has has hands full just staying clean and sober. But when the doctor's young daughter is kidnapped by the killer, it gets Forte's attention. The trail leads Forte from the Big Easy to the Belize island of Ambergris Cay with more twists than a swamp moccasin. In the end, what he discovers threatens to crash his day-by-day stability once again.

MISCUE is a “a quick, easy and fun escape that's tightly paced, told with authority and authenticity” that “puts you right on a French Quarter balcony with a black cat named Boo and its well-worn owner, Al Forte.” The Midwest Book Review calls MISCUE “a straight-ahead, entertaining whodunit with enough twists and turns to confuse the most astute student of detective novels.” The Review says “Allison doesn't hesitate to comment on his own version of social justice, which lends grit and realism to a character the reader can't help cheering for. Al Forte is a flawed but resilient personality who exudes strength even in the midst of his own self-doubt, which lends credibility and a sense of justice fulfilled when he finally cracks the case. His dialogue is stunning.”

Glen C. Allison rescues readers from boredom daily through the exploits of Forte, an addict and ex-SEAL in New Orleans who recovers stolen children. Forte rises from the darkness of his self-inflicted misery to protect endangered innocents in his safe house hidden in the shadows of the French Quarter. A simpler justice guides him through the hard-edged backdrop of the Big Easy to give suspense readers a harrowing taste of this city's secret evils. Forte finds purpose in the protecting the small ones and realizes redemption in the most unlikely places.

MISCUE is book one of the Forte Suspense Trilogy, followed by NETBLUE, and the soon-to-be-releaaed SNAFU.
