My name is Max Everhart. I read, review, and write mysteries and crime thrillers. My first two mystery novels featuring the quick-witted and sharp-tongued private eye Eli Sharpe are out now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Go Go Gato (Eli Sharpe #1) and Split to Splinters (Eli Sharpe #2) have both garnered stellar reviews. Split to Splinters, I’m pleased to say, is a finalist for the Shamus Award in the Best P.I. Original paperback, so please, go check it out! Ed, Not Eddie (Eli Sharpe #3) is the latest in the series, and it came out April 1st, 2016. Also, 280 Steps published Alphabet Land, a crime thriller featuring a “problem-solver” known only as The Rook, on March 1st, 2016. Other than that, I’ve had short stories and essays published in the Potomac Review, Cut Bank, The State, juked, Elysian Fields Quarterly, and Slow Trains Journal. Oh, and I’m a contributor to the mystery blog MotiveMeansOpportunity.
