There’s a darkness infiltrating the city of Chicago. An evil presence has designs on the Windy City, and only Chicago detective Filton Sibley can stop it. But before it’s over, he’ll be changed in ways he never imagined. He’ll have done laundry. He’ll have had indigestion from too many chili dogs. He’ll be framed for murder – twice! But it gets worse than that. He’ll lose more than he ever thought was possible as he fights through cases trying to get to the truth.
From the depths of Chicago subways to the ledges of skyscraper penthouses; from Chicago to Alaska, to England, and the wilds of the jungle, he’ll have to battle the villains trying to turn Chicago into a playground for evil. It’s a good thing he loves stopping bad guys as much as he loves thick pizza and cool jazz…
Ric Jonsen lives in Oak Park, IL in a 3rd floor apartment that looks out over Lake Street. There he muses a little muse, mostly having to do with Chicago Detective, Filton Sibley.
More about Ric coming soon…when he decides to write it.
Agatha Christie meets Fletch
“Foresight is a fun, quick-paced permutation of classic English country house murder mysteries. Chicago detective Filton Sibley brings brash humor and wise-cracking one-liners that leave his fictional audience shaking their heads and readers laughing at his quirky perceptions and penchant for saying what he thinks. There’s plenty of intrigue, too, that keeps readers guess “who done it” till the very end. This irreverent “Agatha Christie meets Fletch” approach is jolly good!” – Gail Harkins, Goodreads.com
The Detective with a Silly Name
“With a cast of unlikable characters, including the hero, how can you find the actual killer? Everybody has a motive, and everybody has a secret, and nobody is in a good mood. Fast paced, clever, funny, and a maze of twists and turns make this a fast read, and a story well told. An American in England, stirring up trouble is always a good place to begin. I liked it, and I will read more from this author. The hero we hate to love or love to hate. Either way, more of Filton Sibley, bumbling, stumbling detective with a silly name is the order of the day.” – SweetMysteries
Snorting and laugh out loud moments
“When I picked up this book, I didn’t expect to see such good humour! It was a lot of fun, with a great well-rounded set of characters, and a few snorting and laugh out loud moments. I certainly didn’t expect the final outcome. If you want a light-hearted quick mystery, with a lot of amusement, then I would highly recommend it.” – Leigh Hunt, Goodreads.com
