Synopsis for The Set-Up
The Set-Up is the first story in a series that introduces Jeremiah Funk, a new breed of detective with whom readers will identify while they are being amused. He doesn't fight, doesn't even own a gun and is both bumbling and gullible in his dealings with women. He lives on a medical pension — and two million dollars that he doesn't dare to talk about — deep in the Rocky Mountains where he hunts with a bow and arrows, drinks, plays with his computer, fixes up his cabin and occasionally takes on assignments. Funk is a humorous uncultured nice guy — who usually just happens to win in the end.

About the Author
Zander Buckingham is 87 years old; lives in the mountains of Colorado; and has been happily married to the same woman for 63 years. When he graBduated from college in 1951 he wanted to write books. But he didn't want to starve in some attic while he was trying to become an author. So he started as an advertising salesman with a newspaper -- then went with increasingly larger companies and ad agencies doing advertising and public relations work. (One gets a great deal of experience in fiction writing in those situations.) As a hobby he wrote a couple of stories. He never tried to get any published. They just sat around by his typewriter until he heard about Smashwords. Zander is retired and now writes as a hobby.
