Wild Turkey | [Michael Hemmingson]

Wild Turkey

Phil Lansdale has problems. He's out of a job, his son's a pyromaniac, and his wife is running out of excuses as to why she comes home six hours late from work every night. In his newly appointed house-husband position, Phil learns that when you have a lot of time on your hands, you begin to notice your neighbors, their intricate nuances, and the discord created by someone who doesn't follow the normal routine-like the long and sexy neighbor across the street, Cassandra Payne.

Publisher's Summary

Phil Lansdale has problems. He's out of a job, his son's a pyromaniac, and his wife is running out of excuses as to why she comes home six hours late from work every night. In his newly appointed house-husband position, Phil learns that when you have a lot of time on your hands, you begin to notice your neighbors, their intricate nuances, and the discord created by someone who doesn't follow the normal routine-like the long and sexy neighbor across the street, Cassandra Payne.

Phil and his new found friend, Bryan, an ex-detective who lives next door, have been keeping tabs on Cassandra. But when Cassandra's husband is gunned down, Phil and Bryan realize that the beautiful Cassandra might be hiding more beneath that eensy-weensy miniskirt than meets the eye, and Phil finds himself drawn into the dark and mysterious world of Cassandra Payne. With a bottle of bourbon and a full tank of gas, Phil sets out to find the gunman and discovers the truth in a world where some men are men, some are wild, and some are only turkeys.

What the Critics Say

"Within Hemmingson's fiction is an oddly twisted brand of sin and redemption. His characters are over-whelmed by their sins and bring out justice upon themselves, or other characters enact the karma for them." (American Book Review)

"Wild Turkey deals up one nasty shock after another. It’s just what thriller addicts crave.” (John Clarkson, author of Reed’s Promise)

Wild Turkey is a quick slice of suburban noir that packs quite a wallop.” (Deadly Pleasures)

    "Wild Turkey Wild Noir"
    What did you love best about Wild Turkey?

    This is true noir at its very, very best.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild Turkey?

    A confrontation scene in the desert near Las Vegas near the end of the novel; sorry can't be a spoiler.


    What didn’t you like about Robert Keiper’s performance?

    This is very difficult to say. This short noir novel is stunning. The narrator/performer has a very mature and gravelly voice. For some characters, it was good, or maybe okay. For the female characters it was horrifying and creepy to listen to. Robert Keiper delivered much of the lines as shouts and they hit like blows. It would have been doubtful that dialogue bewtween friends would sound so loud and angry. This is a very artful crime novel and I wonder if the narrator was selected to give it an unworldly edge. I suspended disbelief and went with it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Fatal Obsessions


    Any additional comments?

    This is well worth your time and money. I highly recommend this very exciting and interesting noir novel. It's short, just over 4 hours of constant movement and action. The character development is very solid, no cartoon characters in this novel.
