Wire to Wire assembles a cast of train-hopping, drug-dealing, glue-huffing lowlifes, in a stunning homage to one of our most popular enduring genres--the American crime novel.While riding a freight car through Detroit, Michael Slater suffers a near-fatal accident--a power line to the head. After a questionable recovery and a broken relationship, he abandons his new home in the Arizona desert, though not before leaving a man for dead. Slater returns to Michigan in a busted-up Ford to reunite with an old train-hopping pal, but quickly discovers that the Pleasant Peninsula of his youth is none too pleasant. As Slater's past catches up with his present--a love triangle, a local drug dealer, the damaged residents of a destitute Northern Michigan town--rock bottom keeps slipping farther away.Three years later, Slater sits in a dark video-editing suite, popping speed like penny candy, attempting to reconcile himself with the unfilmed memories that haunt his screens and his conscience.

A wonderful debut of a mystery that centered around a young man and his screwed up circle of acquaintances:

We need more new younger authors to compliment the seasoned mystery authors like James Pattersons with tired formulars in their books.
