Today is Book Launch Day for ALL CHICKENS MUST DIE.
Benjamin Wade Returns!
1940, the last days of the Great Depression, and private investigator
Benjamin Wade isn’t exactly rolling in the dough. He doesn’t even have a
secretary. So he’s in the unenviable position of taking any client that
walks in his office.
Elmer Smith, a local farmer, has a problem:
all of his chickens are scheduled for slaughter. He’s desperate to save
his livelihood. He got a court injunction to slow the process, but time
is running out.
Instead of laughing Smith out the door, Wade
suppresses his pride to take the case. It seems like a simple,
straight-forward paycheck. He zeroes in on a central question: What
really happened the night police chased someone through Smith’s farm?
Wade isn’t the only one asking that question, but he could be the only
one who might die for it.
