Where it all began… My firstborn, in a writing sense and still the favorite of many. Will soon publish the sequel The Tiger’s Spring as an eBook companion, but for now here’s a reminder of our introduction to Simon, Terra and Brother Lowdown.
Three people with deranged pasts are brought together when a drifter called Brother Lowdown comes to town. Simon Brith is a homicide detective known for his intense reactions when in the proximity of any female other than a hooker. Terra Donlevy is a cosmetics heiress who eschews anything feminine and harbors a violent abhorrence of most men, particularly those who come to her property to poach animals and fish. Simon and Terra meet under unusual circumstances that keep bringing them unhappily together, until a fateful meeting with the indigent Brother Lowdown finds them all under one roof in explosive confrontation.
“…a gripping, undecaffeinated thriller that takes place in a Kansas Dorothy never dreamed of.”
Kinky Friedman, author of A Case of Lone Star and Frequent Flyer
“Brother Lowdown is a taut read. Move over, Thomas Harris, you’ve got company.”
Robert J. Ray, author of the Matt Murdock series
“Brother Lowdown is a full, satisfying story. The cops are real. The crimes are real. Strong people come together explosively. I was entertained and impressed by S.K. Epperson.”
William P. Wood, author of Rampage and Gangland
“Gripping and gritty, Brother Lowdown is the kind of suspense novel that grabs you by the throat on page one and never lets go.”
Kathryn Ptacek, author of Shadoweyes and Ghost Dance
