Teaser Tuesdays – October 14, 2014


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can participate.

If you’re new to Teaser Tuesdays, the details are at MizB’s Should Be Reading or on my Teaser Tuesdays Page.

Thank you to Emma at Book Around the Corner for bringing this book to my attention in July. I rushed to purchase it immediately, but it has only now made its way to the top of the pile. So far it sounds as promised, a hilarious over-the-top fun read.

The Midnight Examiner
by William Kotzwinkle


He sat before his computer, hammering out the last stories of the week for the Midnight Examiner. A medicine bottle filled with gin was close at hand.

Blurb from Goodreads:

Fantasist William Kotzwinkle takes readers on a wild ride in this thriller set in the sleazy world of the tabloids. Howard Halliday, the editor of the Midnight Examiner and the unlikely protagonist in William Kotzwinkle’s latest novel, becomes embroiled with several shady characters, including a bloodthirsty crime lord and a porn queen in danger, who lead him into a bizarre escapade that rivals only the freakish headlines in the Midnight Examiner.

    Thanks for the link to my blog. I’m glad you’re having fun.


    • You’re welcome, Emma. Thanks to you for bringing this one to my attention. I’m not too far in it yet, but really enjoying these crazy characters (and thanking my lucky stars that I never had any co-workers like them, lol).


      • Emma says:

        I LOVED the headline titles. It was SO funny. I imagined them printed in big letters on the front page of the magazines. And all the different kind of magazines with their crazy editors.
        I wonder how it is among the staff of this kind of press in the real world.

      • LOL, surely . . . . If it’s even half like this, oh to be a fly on the wall.

        I laughed about the beauty editor who wouldn’t go to lunch with the guy and told him he always did something to embarrass her. You think?


  3. Sounds like a thrill ride, for sure. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.


  4. I’m both intrigued and slightly skeeved out. Medicine bottle full of gin, huh? I’m guessing that’s the least of his problems. lol, very interesting pick!

    Here are My Teasers.

  8. He drinks gin, I like him already! ;o) Happy Reading.

    Eww, Gin! I’ve never been able to drink it. I’m a vodka or whiskey on the rocks girl:) This does sound fun and I bet it doesn’t have any dull moments:)
    Thanks for stopping by my post.


  10. Hmm, is he avoiding the temptation? Never place gin and medicine together; never a good combo! Crime mystery novels are so fun; hope you’re enjoying this one 🙂
