AVAILABLE AT AMAZON.COM – A NEW NOVEL BY LARRY STANFEL
THE TOWER MOTEL
A dysfunctional couple struggle to subsist on a decaying, small-town motel bypassed by the Interstate highway. The man spirals down beneath a chronic disease, his alcoholic wife shrinks from the world and turns ever inward on herself and her cheap, grasping friends, and their wastrel, teenage son wends his own way. It is a tragedy of love, despair, revenge, loyalty, and murder narrated in the vocabulary and through the eyes of their sole employee, an uneducated young housekeeper. Her ground-level philosophies and pithy observations paint cutting, often humorous, portraits of the unfortunate characters, their trials, and the world around her.
This exciting novel, in the spirit of film noir, tracks believable people trapped by their own humanity and schemes. It lies in wait with twists and turns for adult readers of every level. Read it and contribute your review to this website.
