Missoula, Sept 30, 2021 – After a year of numerous life changing events, Truzzolino self-publishes new book aiming to pick up the Montana crime fiction mantle.
MISSOULA, MONTANA, UNITES STATES, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How do you find a missing person in the middle of the worst world pandemic in over 100 years?
In his first self-published novel, author Nathan Truzzolino answers that question. Set in small town Meriweather Montana, the main protagonist Sonny sets out to locate a missing adult daughter of a friend while navigating a world plagued by a contagious virus called ‘The Cough’.
Author Truzzolino had a year full of life changing events including the birth of his son, the loss of his mother, buying a home in the hottest housing market in history, getting sober and surviving the trials of COVID-19. Inspired by Missoula Montana legend crime writer James Crumley, Truzzolino hopes to pick up where Crumley left off.
“Crumley’s books are full of highway travel and I wanted to create a world similar to the one we live in where travel would be near impossible with lockdowns due to the pandemic. How does someone go missing then get found in a mid-pandemic world where hysteria and paranoia are turned up to 11? Middle of The End grew out of that idea.” – author Nathan Truzzolino
The story includes a rumpus road trip through Montana and her surrounding states as Sonny navigates the twists and turns of finding Kelly Braddock in a world where hiding is easier than ever.
“This was a great book. Nathan knows how to thread together a lot of different thoughts and make an intriguing drama that unfolds in a slow, methodic way until the end when it all comes to a head in a dramatic, exciting way. The topic is relevant to what’s happening today and I enjoyed the ways he mixes real-life issues with fictional stories. Well worth reading!” Jake Sorich, author of The Cabbage Patch.
The novel can be purchased at amazon.com in paperback and digital form.
Truzzolino also has a blog called Goose and the Bear where you can read his other writings including the short autobiography of the wildest year of his life titled All That Can Fit In a Year.
