Whither, Willie Wicked?


An indictment for the rape of a thirteen-year-old girl should be enough to end any singer's career. But, when teen-age rock sensation Jeff Christopher is arrested for rape, and a professionally produced video of the act is put up for sale on the Internet, it provokes a series of events quite unlike anything enigmatic private investigator Thomas Gareth had ever expected to see again. 

Hired by Christopher's father to locate his son after the boy vanishes, thus forfeiting a half-million dollars in bail, Gareth and his associates are inexorably drawn into the glittering, obscene world of smut punk rock, and its degenerate, satanic star Willie Wicked, whose ascent to power and fame seems irresistible as well as incomprehensible. 

From the dark streets of SoHo, to the ISIS strongholds of Europe and Syria, Gareth encounters an army of unholy antagonists who force him to remember his purpose, his status, and, most importantly, his mission. For, the gates of hell are open, ISIS and the Illuminati have made common cause, and popular culture is being co-opted into the service of evil. For Gareth, it is a return to the Great War, and whoever wins, the fight will be merciless and bloody.


(5-Stars) Not your usual private eye or novel.

"Extraordinary in its concept - current to events with the witch/wizard/warlock esp with powers private eye adding interest along with the other characters such as Ms. Chong; music, location, and philosophical (serious and whimsical) references and knowledge; plenty of action; insightful; humor; and it flows with good writing. Impressive. Adult language and situations or references - not the usual and not for the faint-hearted, but don't be put off by any of it - just go for it."

'"Whither, Willie Wicked?' is another impressive work from Jan Ewing, marked by the writer's usual energetic style but also different from his previous books, expanding into the realm of sci-fi and action with incredible results. This novel is wild, imaginative, and full of surprises, taking the reader in unexpected directions at every turn; it's also amazing how the story blends sci-fi with current events and settings, and how easily it can shift from hilarity to horror and back again. It's nearly impossible to stop reading, and to stop thinking about the book once you've finished. Hopefully we'll see more works from this talented writer very soon!"
