Publisher's Summary

The Internet? Never heard of it. Smart phones? Who you kiddin'? We're talkin' 1956.
Energetic and eager to make his mark on what Time Magazine called the next great boom town, Bucky Ontario leaves his Louisiana home and hops a bus to Defiance, Oklahoma, a town not particularly adverse to murders, just the embarrassment of them. While helping his friend, Kindra, search for a ring that once belonged to her dead mother, Bucky is told, "Find the baby, find the ring."

Murder and Corruption in Small Town America

Set in the late 1950s, The Killer Who Hated Soup tells the story of a series of murders (not all related) through the eyes of Bucky Ontario, a young jack of all trades who works as a car salesman, photographer and unofficial murder investigator in a small mid-western town. Brilliantly well told the story twists and turns through the plot filled with murder, suspense, small town corruption and illicit sex, looking back at a different time with a blend of nostalgia, humour and brutal honesty.
I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery and all of it's tangled who-dunits.

As this audio book is set in 1956 Oklahoma, this mystery is solved without all the technological advantages of today. The characters were interesting and the plot had surprises right to the end, when you realize that all the clues were in plain sight. I look forward to reading more of Bucky Ontario’s adventures as a Photographer/sleuth/car salesman in the future installments. The narration was well done.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
