This is a creative, extremely well written story that held my attention immediately and throughout. It captures the people and places described at that time perfectly. I won’t give away the ending ! Really a good story ! I am very happy I made this purchase and I heartily recommend it to others.
Fast reading and I could hardly put the book down..also very funny..held my interest.
Tower Motel is a classic crime noir set in a small Illinois town. The story is narrated by, Darlene Englund, an uneducated, cynical maid at the motel. Darlene shares her opinions of the hotel owners, families, and guests. In addition, she also provides them some additional hospitality services of her own. While somewhat humbly considering herself just doing her job or being a good-deed doer, she eventually falls prey to her greed.
Through Darlene Englund, Larry Stanfel captures a dysfunctional level of small-town life but laces the story with sardonic humor to make a fun read.

I finished your book…it was written in such a way, that I have nothing to compare it to…it was great!! it kept me wondering what other character is going to show up…
I’m glad I didn’t read the ending like I sometimes do when the suspense of ‘what is this book leading to?’ is getting to me…because the ending WAS the clincher…Darlene should’ve paid more attention to detail while watching her crime shows!!
The last book I bought had so many words misspelled, I’ve never finished it, it distracts me too much…I give your book an A+
