Book Buzz: The Fall of Billy Hitchings by Kirkus MacGowan: A Great Action Read!

The Fall of Billy Hitchings (A John Reeves Novel)“If you want tried and true, staid and predictable, read something else.” ~ G.A. Albrethsen, Author of The Foolish and the Weak

Hello Digital Book Today readers. Today our book buzz segment is featuring Kirkus MacGowan’s first book and Amazon best seller The Fall of Billy Hitchings. When archaeologists discover a trio of ancient Cherokee artifacts in a Kentucky cave, Tom Jarrett entrusts two loyal employees to deliver the three plates to a friend in Myrtle Beach. Instead, “the voice” of a local teenager ignites the artifacts and causes a deadly explosion, killing the teenager’s boss and impaling his friend. Now, Tom Jarrett wants the artifacts back and will stop at nothing to get them. — It sure sounds interesting and judging from the Amazon reviews Kirkus MacGowan has a breakaway hit of a novel since Amazon reviewers have given The Fall of Billy Hitchings a rating of 4.5 stars on 63 reviews. The Fall of Billy Hitchings was a Top 5 Finalist in Mystery/Thriller category for the 2012 Best Indie Book on The Kindle Book Review.

“…the characters are superbly written, their intertwining relationships riveting and the actual source of Billy’s “fall” is nothing short of creative genius. ~ Ashley Fontainne, Amazon Bestselling Author

The story is filled with action, intelligently written and thought provoking. It is woven in such a fashion that the suspense keeps building and the clues to solving the mystery are subtle and intense. I highly recommend this book and eagerly look forward to reading more from Kirkus MacGowan. ~ Marilou George, Amazon Reviews
