Three Nails

Rated 4.33/5 based on 3 reviews
Three Nails is a rich, witty, smart slice of Americana. Although it opens with loss of life—Three Nails ends with aspiration—hope, heritage, and new life. Like a handful of stones thrown in a pond, the circles of life and memories are all interconnected to process grief. Relationships with a wife, children, colleagues at work and even the kids taught at school are all part of the gift of healing. More

About Micheal Maxwell

Micheal Maxwell has traveled the globe on the lookout for strange sights, sounds, and people. His adventures have taken him from the Jungles of Ecuador and the Philippines, to the top of the Eiffel Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge, and from the cave dwellings of Native Americans to The Kehlsteinhaus, Hitler’s Eagles Nest! He’s always looking for a story to tell and interesting people to meet.
Micheal Maxwell was taught the beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen.
Mr. Maxwell has traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. He has rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving him a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of his books.
Micheal Maxwell has found a niche in the mystery, suspense, genre with The Cole Sage Series that gives readers an everyman hero, short on vices, long on compassion, and a sense of fair play, and the willingness to risk everything to right wrongs. The Cole Sage Series departs from the usual, heavily sexual, profanity laced norm and gives readers character driven stories, with twists, turns, and page turning plot lines.
Micheal Maxwell writes from a life of love, music, film, and literature. Along with his lovely wife and travel partner, Janet, he lives in a small town in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.

Review by: Allen Stanton on Sep. 10, 2015 :
This book was written for me. I taught for 30 years and loved it. I identified in so many ways with the main character. I tried every day to make a difference and was a little bit successful. I simply could not put the book down and it will be one that I will read over and over. I, too, lost a son and have 2 daughters (however I also have 3 more sons). WOW!

This was great! A story that starts with a deep loss that is hard to overcome. It ends with unimaginable promise. This is the story of the trials a "normal Joe" goes through trying to deal with deep sadness. Along the way are interesting characters and interesting, funny and troubling anecdotes. The end was perfect, with expectations of happiness and life worth living. I highly recommend this novella.
This is the third book I have read by Mr. Maxwell and I will continue to read his books, they are great!
I was graciously provided with a copy of this from the author. This did not effect my review one way or the other.
This review was posted so late after receiving it because I was new to this and wasn't sure what I was doing. It is no reflection on this book or the author.

Having read a Cole Sage book prior to this, I was expecting great things. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. More than anything, this book didn't seem like it was quite ready for release. I think it would benefit greatly from a good proofreading. The story seemed a bit disjointed and was hard to follow at times. It seemed the author was trying a bit to hard to make everything tie together.
Overall, the message was a good one, and it is definitely worth a read, but be ready to overlook some proofing errors as you read.
