Jonah Gibson is a retired CPA and management accountant who lives in Port St. Lucie, Florida with his wife and as many greyhounds as they are able to squeeze into the house. When he is not writing, he is tinkering at art and probably thinking about fishing although he never actually does the latter as he hates to get his tackle wet.
Jonah prefers the sacred to the profane, but profanity to speech that has been sanitized of impact. He prefers art to politics and politics to war, quiet to music and music to noise. He prefers driving to flying, but, these days, who doesn't. He'd rather have red wine than white, scotch than bourbon, and martinis than almost anything else. He likes his candy with nuts.
Jonah believes fiction is often truer than reality, and art is more reasonable than philosophy. He thinks science confirms faith in ways only a poet would understand. He believes that, at a minimum, one should leave the world in a better state than one found it, and that while it's okay to fail at this, it's not okay not to try.

Great book, I enjoyed it a lot. If you like murder and mayhem and serial killers be sure to read this book. Once you start reading you can't put it down. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

I ask only one thing of a book I read - I want to be engaged for the time I allot to reading each day. Speedster not only engaged me, it transported me, and the time I allotted for reading grew as I got deeper into the book. I put aside work I needed to be doing to "hang out" with this motley band of characters whom I felt I knew as well as I know the people I meet and speak with every day.
The story line grabs you from the first paragraph and you MUST turn the page - there aren't a bunch of formulaic cliffhangers in this book - if you like a predictable read, Speedster is not for you. This book is as unique and as far from "ordinary" as I have ever come across. Each time I thought I had figured out what was going to happen next, I was stunned with a plot twist that amazed and entertained. And, right in the middle of the most terrifying events, I would run into something that made me burst out laughing - so loudly that my dog came running to see what on earth was happening.
Suffice to say that this book will grab you and keep you. You will want to share it with your friends. That's something I CAN predict.
