Mythica to Publish US Author Tom Cooke's Debut Novel

Galston, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 10, 2009 -- Mythica Publishing are delighted that U.S. author is the latest addition to the list of accomplished authors signing with this new and exciting company. Tom Cooke, although this is his first novel is no stranger to the media, having worked in the Cable TV industry for many years after leaving the U.S. Army, and being the writer of a number of technical manuals during those years.

Of his novel, THE MEMOIRS OF BEAR: Nueces Means Nuts is the story of Bear Williams; half breed Apache Private Eye whose grandfather was a tribal holy man. Despite years of training by his grandfather, Bear's mystic abilities are nominal and he solves most of his cases the old fashioned way, by hard work and, in Bear's case, good friends and dumb luck.

The case's genesis, a deadly boring missing persons case, quickly turns into a cruel and grisly murder and a scandal of gigantic proportions. As the scandal is revealed it unwaveringly involves the cream of Texas society, a crazed preacher, an oil theft, homicide and rudeness, the last of which is regarded by some as a Capital Offense in Texas.

Despite two attempts on his life, Bear and his team of allies plod steadily forward and start to stack fact on top of fact until a preponderance of evidence starts to point to a surprising suspect. Even more surprising is how abruptly justice is meted out and by whom.

The well defined and likeable characters in this tale will draw the reader into the complex web of crime and scandal that surrounds the likeable Bear and his friends as they strike fear into the hearts of the perpetrators of the crime...eventually!

Mythica's Graeme S Houston says, "Tom's book is a superb crime-noir tale that will have readers on the edge of their seats. I'm over the moon to have added his great talents to the Mythica family of authors.".

THE MEMOIRS OF BEAR: Nueces Means Nuts will be released later this year.
