An Adventure In Indianapolis – Intro


An Adventure In Indianapolis

The book is about criminal activity but does not fall into the traditional ‘murder mystery’ story. The story is about a crime problem in Middle America, and how it is resolved.

It is ‘Americentric’ and shows much of the culture while having an open sense of humor about conditions in the USA. The nation is neither idealized nor villainized in the novel.

An Adventure In Indianapolis

There is a basic ‘good versus evil’ element to the storyline. There is teamwork; there is brain work; there is legwork. There is the simple question of whether or not the solution to the problem is or is not acceptable.
Fans of crime fiction will love this story, so will the fans of magical realism – there is some magic in the story; some of it is religious and some of it is not. Fantasy fans: some may like the magic in the tale, even though for fantasy fans there is hardly any magic in it at all. Contemporary urban fiction – the story takes place in a mostly realistic portrayal of Indianapolis.
The author views the unethical aspects of the crime-solving methods used in the novel as “law enforcement fantasizing” and with a sense of humor. It is more meant as a joke than an argument in favor of government corruption, but it also brings in some acceptance: that there are times when unconventional solutions may be best.


Believe it or not when I wrote this one I hoped that whichever genitals you’re carrying between your legs you will get great enjoyment from this novel.  Set in the city of Indianapolis, an extraordinary and odd team of 4 is unleashed by the city’s Mayor to thwart a plot by local drug manufacturers. 

Now, we know that many people prefer ‘real books’ to ebooks, while other folks like ‘e’ better.  One edition is presently available as a Kindle book.  Those of you unafraid of formatting errors or wild and unruly artworks may be able to pick up a copy from Cafe Press…but if you want the book as a book – please contact Alethia Publishing and order the novel.

Hope that helps everyone looking for a good read. 

The storyline is definitely for adults, not kids, but the style is designed for anyone who has made it entirely or even most of the way through high school.  I love more complex language myself, but I heard a rumor that becoming more adept with simpler language might improve overall performance as a writer.
