Please check out this blog, I received a nice blurb from Robert Carraher on his blog the-dirty-lowdown. Many thanks RC.

Next up will be a book from a new writer I just discovered.Mike Fairicy

Mike Faricy is America's hottest new  mystery writer. Minnesota native (and part time resident of Dublin, Ireland) Mike Faricy is currently working on his seventh cross-genre thriller, creating yet another suspenseful and zany crime caper populated by unforgettable characters working their way through twisting action-packed plots. Storyteller Faricy builds webs of crime and murder that sorely test his protagonists' abilities and ingenuity. Their struggles attract all kinds of bad company, with nail-bitingly hazardous and darkly comic results. Mike just sent me Russian Roulette. Russian RouletteBy the way, the cover photo is actually shot at the Spot Bar, a local ‘watering hole’ filled with early morning characters that didn’t stop in for a double latte with coconut and candied sprinklees,  to put it nicely. The guy is Mike’s son, that's his girlfriend holding the gun to his head. He’ll get used to that…“We shot it at 11:00 on a Sunday morning, the place full of day drinkers.” says Mike. Mike sent me the book from Smashwords on Sunday and I told him Sundays were always busy for me, trash man comes on Monday, horses and cats to take care of, etc.…well, damnit! I just had to peek, make sure the file was intact, you know (that’s my story and I am sticking to it!). Well, needless to say, I was immediately caught up in the book! What great mad cap characters in the vein of the best humorous hardboiled noir. I have a feeling I’ll be investing in a lot more shelf space – or Kindle Space (need to get a real Kindle now that the sun is coming out and I’ll be spending more time in the sun on the deck)– to populate with Mike’s books.


  1. Hi Mike. You were kind enough to comment on my "dabble" at poetry. In return I've ventured over here and I'm suitably impressed. (I've also had a look at your web site.) I'll be keeping an eye on your blog as I'm now your second follower. You could return the favour...if you want. I look forward to reading your work.

    I also write flash fiction and short stories and I'm currently working on my first and when it decides to rear its ugly head. I'm also the editor of The Flash Fiction Offensive. All links are on my blog.

    Great to meet you.


  2. Loved the interview with Robert and decided I wanted to visit. I am a new follower. Would love for you to check out my blog. I am a huge supporter of Indies and enjoy mystery/suspense/thrillers along with several other genres. I would also be interested in doing an interview with you if you have the inclination. Currently, My Spotlight Interviews run a full week in the top position and my first available opening is August 7th. Hope to hear from you. Best Regards,

  3. Thank you for the copy I'll try to post a review ASAP have a great summer! ^_^
