Detective Remington frickin' hates the missing persons detail, but a cold fury builds in the pit of his stomach when he realizes that over the past three months, six boys have disappeared from the smaller communities that surround the greater Phoenix area. All were reported to be runaways looking to escape their shitty lives, but Remy's starting to put together a different picture, and he doesn't like it one damn bit.

So good! I really enjoy the supernatural aspect of each book and Mr. Simmons naration is excellent. He brings Whyborne to life for me and love the friendship and camaraderie of the three leads. I can't wait for the next installment!

From the critically acclaimed writer, Michael Thomas Ford, comes a highly anticipated first novel that follows the intertwining lives of three men, set against the backdrop of summer-time in the breezy coastal community of Provincetown.

If you could sum up Last Summer in three words, what would they be?

Heart-warming
Funny
Relatable

What other book might you compare Last Summer to and why?

Last Summer reminds me of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City as it follows different characters in a span of one summer.

Which character – as performed by Blake Somerset – was your favorite?

I loved all his characterizations but Emerline was particularly touching to me.

Who was the most memorable character of Last Summer and why?

Josh was the most memorable for me as I could really relate to his experiences. I had a lot in common with him.

Any additional comments?

As my headline says not breaking any new ground but the story was written in a very personal style that really drew me in to the characters and their experiences. I really didn't want it to end and I so wish that MTF would write a sequel to this very touching story.
