Synopsis

Mechanic of Fortune is the story of James Terrell, private detective gone astray toward hired gun, who reverses course to save himself and the beautiful Virona Ruth. This novel is funny and profound, combining adventure with satire and romance. In his travels James encounters scoundrels and reformists, the down and out, scheming doctors, and the bullying rich. Characters include lookalikes Willie Nelson, Saddam Hussein, and Richard Cheney, plus such literary ghosts as Jekyll and Hyde and Joseph K. Mechanic of Fortune is a broadside for today's America in the picaresque tradition of journeys into comedy and revelation.
