Sanborn said that Madigan wanted to address the violence in every-day life, and Madigan’s protagonist — detective Reid Hollow — is “one step away from the law.”
“Hollow is a World War I veteran, who suffers from Post Traumatic Syndrome — they called it shell shock then,” Sanborn said. “The whole book shows how frustrated by violence we are.”
The book sells for $12 from the publisher and Amazon.com. Kindle will eventually carry the book for about half the publisher’s price, Sanborn said.
