Overview

Night Work by Rush Williams

In January, Curt Mellam, widower, prices an imported sports car (MGX) as a high school graduation present for Karen, his only child, expecting her to drive it to Georgetown University in the coming fall. He never completes the purchase. Instead, by September he is dodging bullets as a moonlighter, is rapidly unlearning notions he, as a straight-arrow, to-the-line executive, has long held, and is worrying about how he will ever pay next semester's tuition for Karen.

Night Work tells how Curt adapts to street life and, at the same time, to his quickly maturing (especially sexually) daughter who brings her first serious boy friend home to meet Dad just as Curt has to start working nights. Curt, of course, wants to tar and feather the boy and run him out of town.

The story is told with self-effacing humor despite the violence (murder, corrupt inner city police, drug dealing) Curt encounters. In time, Curt and his daughter come to consider their ordeals blessings.

I found 'Night Work' to be a very enjoyable book and a must read for any mystery novel fan. Rush Williams' writing style brings a real world and down to earth feel to the characters. I definitely felt I was there with them. I highly recommend the adventure.

'This mystery is brought to life by lits robust characters and vivid scenery. You feel you are a witness to late night crime. The plot is a twister, but it is the author's bringing you into the story with his engaging style that keeps you turning the page. Remarkably well written.' S. Perkins, Stockbroker, Los Angeles,CA.

I always know when I am reading a good book because I don't want to put it down. I felt I was in the cab with Curt and seeing first hand the colorful characters and the settings they lived in. A thoroughly enjoybable book.

This mystery is brought to life by its robust characters and vivid scenery. You feel like you are an eye witness to late night crime in the impoverished south. You visit a seedy world and have an experience you are unlikely to have in 'real life.' The plot is a twister, but it's the author's bringing you into the story with his engaging style that causes you to keep turning the page -- both to find out what happens next and for the shear beauty of the writing. Remarkably well written.
