About The Book:
Technology reshapes the world at warp speed. Each day, what’s considered retro creeps closer and closer to the chronological present. In THE MUSEUM OF SUDDEN DISAPPEARANCES (thriller with rock & roll humor), ultra-retro deejay “Jurassic Jim” Fleetwood searches for his missing cousin, while seeking his spot in a volatile world where everything is as disposable as a plastic cup.
Transience turns deadly when a car soars into a river, its radio tuned to Jim’s show. The police report an accident. Jim’s cousin, an ex-felon and friend of the drowned woman, suspects otherwise. When he disappears, Jim’s search leads to a latter-day Bonnie and Clyde, and sociopathic triplets—human retrorockets and former pop stars—who redefine personality disorders with a 4/4 beat.
Loyalty should last, Jim knows, and vows to get his cousin back—amid a throwaway world of sudden disappearances and vanishing acts.
How do you find your place in a world where nothing stays in place? Stay tuned. And welcome to The Museum of Sudden Disappearances. Featured exhibits include mystery, music, mirth, melancholy, mayhem, murder and the missing.
Thomas Davidson’s early attempts at storytelling began at St. Veronica’s Grade School near Detroit. The classroom windows provided a view of the sky. Staring at sailing clouds and daydreaming sure beat staring at a nun with a pointer, and numbers or diagrams on the blackboard.
Fast forward years later. He writes at a desk by a window, and stares at clouds.
Everything has changed.
Nothing has changed.
His head is still in the clouds.
