Alphabet Land

A novel by

A part-time casket maker, part time "problem-solver" obsessed with chess is trying to clean things up in a neighborhood awash in drugs, violence and crime.

In Alphabet Land, a rundown neighborhood in Clyde, SC, Luke Bump calls the shots. So when Bump, a sadistic career criminal, orders an indebted employee named Crispy to rob Rebel Pig BBQ, Crispy obeys, absconding with $66,000 in cash. But not before shooting the owner, Robert Leviner.

Enter the Rook, an ex-convict turned "problem-solver", who plays chess and carries a .45 Chief's Special to get justice... his way. The Rook's mission: retrieve Leviner's nest egg. And in the process, pry Alphabet Land loose from Luke Bump's deadly grip.

Praise for Alphabet Land

"Alphabet Land is as coarse and gritty as Carolina noir can get. Max Everhart has a new big fan." - JOHN VORHAUS, author of The California Roll

"Everhart has skillfully put together a fresh, tight tale that juggles the story of multiple damaged goods characters that collide face-first on a chunk of dirt called Alphabet Land. Crime story goodness that's gritty, pulpy, tragic, even funny at times and rips through pages like lightning." - MIKE McCRARY, author of Remo Went Rogue and Getting Ugly

"Alphabet Land, decrepit neighborhood on the wrong side of the bridge in Clyde, South Carolina. A bridge separating "haves" from "have nots," opulence from squalor, justice from injustice. Meet the Rook, product of Alphabet Land, casket-maker and "problem-solver" by trade. Call him vigilante, or Robin Hood - the Rook lives by his own code and his word is his bond. Max Everhart's mystifying hero is determined to stop the lustful power mongers from both sides of the bridge before greed destroys all hope for the hood's people. Hang onto your hat, because you're in for one hell of a non-stop ride through the dark and violent streets of Alphabet Land!" - E. MICHAEL HELMS, author of the Mac McClellan Mystery series
