An avid crime fiction reader, Patrick Brown was inspired by writers such as Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Current authors such as Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Jonathan Kellerman, Robert Crais and Stephen King have been equally inspirational. A gentle prod from friends and family convinced him to pursue writing his first novel, Varied Traits. Heavy Hour was released in September 2015. Brown is currently on editing mode for the third novel in the series, Spare Change.
Patrick Brown is a long time Georgia resident. He currently lives in Peachtree Corners with his wife and two children.
From the author of the suspense thriller, Varied Traits, comes the sequel, Heavy Hour – published in September 2015 by Peachtree Corners Press and author Patrick Brown.
Four teenagers form a bond during a hot Atlanta summer. Ten years later, a tragic event takes place during a swanky Midtown wedding reception. When the police come up empty in the search for a vicious killer, Salem Reid is summoned to investigate by a stripper whom he has recently saved from a murderous group of thugs. Reid can’t say no to a friend in need, so he puts his business on hold while he plunges into the case.
As Reid looks into the victim’s past, the motivation for the brutal murder and the identity of the predator are slowly revealed. But the killer remains elusive. As the story unfolds, a cast of characters emerges—from a beautiful young widow to a bevy of streetwalkers, from young professionals to a mentally challenged boy—all who assist Salem Reid in his search for the killer.
Heavy Hour leads us on a journey into an urban underworld of prostitution, pornography, and sexual deviance that author Patrick Brown describes in graphic detail. Following up from the prequel, Varied Traits (ISBN: 978-0986254901), we are rocketed into a world where we might be afraid to venture outside…or stay in, as the case may be.
