With Bull Schaffner as a long-haul truck driver and private-eye wannabe, author John Aalborg provides a trucker's eye view into lives normally invisible to the public and the law, and brings you back shocked, deeply touched, and strangely happy. First in a new series, "Lowboy #22" is the story of a missing, semi trailer-truck and its mysterious cargo. With an intelligent demeanor which barely fits his handle and robust appearance, Bull reveals a darker side as he encounters a resourceful career criminal and murderer in the form of an elegant but armed and dangerous old lady; a set of beautiful, Haitian, deaf-mute, twin girls; a pet monkey with serious needs owned by a thieving and ambitious nymphet; and the return of Bull's vivacious, resourceful, and ever-horny sister, Janey, who humorously steers her oft-bewildered brother through the clues and pitfalls of the case he has just taken on. Operating outside the law themselves, Bull and Janey slog through one crisis after another, trailing gory murders along their route from rural Florida to the West Virginia hills to a truck terminal in Missouri to a young love-story amidst the magic of the Miami River. When the Lowboy #22 case comes to an abrupt close, questions regarding other crimes brought to light along the way has readers begging for a sequel. Tough-guy crime-action-drama but where tougher women rule.
The series characters are drawn from the "Axel McKay"© radio plays previously aired coast-to-coast on the WLAC Nashville Network and sponsored by Ford and Caterpillar. Here, however, the players burst onto the scene uncensored and in full color.
