The Truck That Jack Built
It started with an ad on craigslist. "How could a teacher murder one?" Jack responded right away. No need for a teacher to sully her hands with the gritty details. Jack is a...well...a Jack of all trades. Murder included. The secret, though, is to make death look like not-murder. Like an accident. Jack is good at accidents.
“Doorstop-Stealer Dies in Rear-End Collision.” No witnesses to the Dodge Ram brake-check. And no ID of a hooded figure cutting the surveillance camera wire that rainy night late-working credit-stealer Mr. Gumpas was flung 32 feet by a hit-and-run driver on the parking lot.
Business is good. Jack puts personalized plates on his Dodge Ram. Work experience in crime scene investigations and auto repair serves him well.

Fake Reviews for Val’s Fake Book
TRUCKer Cap of Ashton Kutcher…”I doff myself to Jack, but the author, Val Thevictorian, is mad as a hatter!”
The Griswold Family TRUCKster…”While driving the tribe cross country, I often felt the urge to murder. Kudos to Thevictorian for putting schemes to paper. It's almost as if she lived these scenarios.”
That 1970s Keep On TRUCKin' Logo…”From the bottom of my hobnail boots to the far-ranging width of my bell-bottom jeans, I despise this poorly-conceived vehicle.”
Cher, in MoonsTRUCK…”Snap out of it! You do NOT love this book. The author, Val Thevictorian, needs to be slapped with a wooden hand.”
ThundersTRUCK Book Reviewer for the New York Times…”Not since that red-and-white 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine has there been a more deadly automobile! While I appreciate the premise, I regret to inform that the writing style of this vehicle is pedestrian. Thevictorian's novel is a wreck.”
