A Salted Slug by Joe King (Book Review #1259)


A salted slug is a crime mystery science fiction story. Zander Kain is a writer who has lost his job due to leaking classified information. He spends his days trying to get some work as a freelance writer for the Rook City Review which is governed by the NAU government. As Zander interviews a passed-out drunk-off-key singer in his car and takes her back home, he notices a mysterious red orb in the sky, creating a thrilling story to read.

Zander’s father is a disabled NAU soldier living in a nursing facility. The relationship with his father is interesting to read as Zander feels that NAU is trying to cover something up and wants him dead.

I found the literature to be written well and filled with elements of science and thrill. Zander really pulled the plotline together. The pace of the story was steady, and I enjoyed reading the book.

I recommend this book to crime and mystery readers.
