About Pringle McCloy

My interest in mysteries began early in life after discovering several Mickey Spillane novels in my father’s library. I was intrigued by tough-guy detective, Mike Hammer, who then led me to Raymond Chandler’s PI, Philip Marlow, and so on. Chandler’s Marlowe and my Charlie Hampton have a lot in common but you’ll have to read THE JACK IN A BOX to see the similarity. Both are tough guys who take their whiskey straight and women tall.

THE JACK IN A BOX was inspired while I was living and working in coastal Vancouver and is the setting for the novel. In the sequel, RETURN OF THE JACK, Jack is out of the box and the the same old shady, underworld figure, off to Beijing for more trouble in fighting the Triad. This sequel will be posted by Christmas. And as the Triad continues to loom, the last in the trilogy, POSSIBLY JACK AGAIN, is set in Santa Ana, California, where Jack may just survive a swim in a deep well, handcuffed. Watch for this thriller n February.

For lovers of chick lit, WOMAN COMING SOON is also posted with a sequel coming soon. Women seeking revenge may learn some secrets from Sophie, not that they worked for her. Lots to read. Lots to think about.
