miracleThe Small World of Harry Parnes (The Harry Parnes Series) [Kindle Edition]

By Randy Cade

While in a West Texas prison for murder Harry Parnes had an opportunity to think. For 14 years. He hadn’t been that successful as a criminal. He resolved to live a better and more successful life. What better way than to rob a bank on impulse the day you get out?

The way most book jacket liner notes are written you were probably expecting to see something like “This book is for the serious Crime Fiction Aficionado.” Well, this book is not. It’s for the Crime Fiction Aficionado with a sense of humor.

If you like books by Elmore Leonard, Carl Hiaasen, George V. Higgins, Bud Shulberg, Damon Runyon, John D. MacDonald, you’ll probably like this book. These authors are mentioned out of deference; as a new author I am in not any way suggesting I am in the same league. That’s why this book had to have a sense of humor, as well as the traditional smattering of hard, raw dialogue, violence, and of course, a few plot twists.

Randy Cade has lived in California all his adult life, growing up in the 60’s 70’s and 80’s in Northern and Southern California along with all the great things that came with that. There was the San Francisco music scene around the Fillmore Auditorium in the 60’s, UC Berkeley and being a book publisher in the 70’s (yes, remember real books printed on paper etc.?), and a pioneer in the computer industry in the 80’s. Then comes the good part, two wonderful daughters, a great wife and adapting to the brave new digital world of computers, instant communication, cell phones, The Net, iStuff, Netflix and DirecTV.

There, all the third person stuff is out of the way, back to the first person which is the point of view that most of this novel is written in. The same will be true of parts Two and Three of the Harry Parnes Series, but only if you buy Part One. After all, it’s less than the price of a latte, less than the price of a well cocktail in a crappy dive bar. So buy this book already, what have you got to lose?

Aaron is forced into a new world where he learns he is part of a super-human race that was ripped from Earth millennium ago. On this new world he is forced to fight a war that is not his, and must become a killer in a world of killers.

Aaron Campbell believes there is no good in him, and he has lived his two decades on Earth accordingly. A dark alley is where he finds himself as he is warmed from the blood pumping out of his chest. As he tries to find some semblance of peace in what appear to be his final moments, the revelation is forced upon him that he is a member of an unknown mighty race. This race is biologically human but is imbued with the energy of the gods, which gives it superior physical attributes. Dominic, the last of its creators, drags Aaron from the gutter to fulfil an important task, the nature of which will be revealed to Aaron in time. Stumbling from death into more life than he has ever known, Aaron will use that life to create – and protect – the family he’s never had.
