Recent release from Page Publishing’s Rick Taft, “Another Jack Trumane, Private Dick, Mystery", explores the life of a beat cop, in any US city, who feels his career as a police detective was taken from him by Irish immigrants who filled a majority of law enforcement rolls during the early 1900s.

Rick Taft, a history buff who enjoys the black-and-white movies he grew up watching on TV, has completed his new book “Another Jack Trumane, Private Dick, Mystery": an intriguing work that delves into the life and times of Jack Trumane.

According to Taft, “I am particularly fond of the old gangster movies which would feature stars like James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracey, and Edmund O’Brien. I never intended to seriously write anything. What started as a way to tease a coworker, a two-paragraph description of a down-on-his-luck 1930s detective turned into the Jack Trumane—Private Dick. It was simply an accident.”

Published by Page Publishing, Rick Taft’s lighthearted yet intriguing book, will introduce you to Ethel, who is Jack’s love interest; Mildred, who works behind the lunch counter at Woolworths and has a soft spot for Jack; Bruce, the pawnshop owner who enjoys a love/hate relationship with our protagonist; and many other characters that contribute to each Jack Trumane, Private Dick novella.

Jack occasionally has “flash-forwards” to the late 1990s early 2000s via musical interludes. If you’re paying attention, you will notice that while the story has a specific running timeline of a few days or weeks, references are made to holidays and months that could not possibly fit the time frame. Sexual overtones abound. These are all for comedic value. Relax and enjoy the world of Jack Trumane—Private Dick.

Readers who wish to experience this imaginative work can purchase “Another Jack Trumane, Private Dick, Mystery” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
