He’s determined to prove his friend innocent of homicide. He may make things worse….
When Marty’s surfer-dude pal is arrested for murder, he must squeeze his amateur sleuthing into his packed schedule. With his high-tech job busier than ever and his nieces’ antics sidetracking him, Marty’s ready for a Thanksgiving holiday. All he has to do is solve two murders. But if he can’t even convince his sister to bake his favorite chocolate pie, how can he hope to save his friend?
With the help of his girlfriend, some wacky coworkers and Buddy the rambunctious Labrador, Marty sets out to disprove the ironclad evidence. But as the suspect list blossoms out of control, his bumbling efforts might lead him into problems faster than a failing hard drive.
Can he clear his friend’s name before he’s blown to bits?

About Marc Jedel
For most of my life, I’ve been inventing stories. Some, especially when I was young, involved my sister as the villain. As my sister’s brother for her entire life, I’m highly qualified to tell the tale of this evolving, quirky sibling relationship.
My writing skills were honed in years of marketing leadership positions in Silicon Valley. While my high tech marketing roles involved crafting plenty of fiction, we called these marketing collateral, emails and ads.
The publication of my first novel, Uncle and Ants, gave me permission to claim “author” as my job. And achieving Amazon Best Seller status gave me even better adjectives to use in front of “author.” This has led to way more interesting discussions than answering “marketing.”
My family would tell you that Marty’s character isn’t much of a stretch of the imagination for me, but I’m comfortable with that situation.
Like Marty, I live in Silicon Valley and can’t believe that otherwise normal people would willingly jump out of an airplane and call it fun. Unlike Marty, I have a wonderful wife and a neurotic but sweet, small dog, who is often the first to weigh in on the humor in my writing.

— 5 stars REVIEW —
Hit and Mist, fourth in Marq Jedel’s humorous mystery series, does not disappoint. In fact, it builds on the humor from the previous books. Once you know Marty (a computer coder nerd for a self-driving car agency) and his eclectic crew of unusual friends, you won’t forget them.
From the impossible situations Marty falls into, to his fumbling murder investigation skills, to his hilarious “dad jokes” and puns, this book is a chuckle (or guffaw) from start to finish.
This time, Marty tries to exonerate his and Detective Mace’s friend Brody who has been arrested and jailed for killing the owner of a gardening service. (Yes, I know! A gardener, but just wait!)
In between doing his coding job, having fun with his co-workers, meeting gangsters, taking care of his nieces (and their dog) once again, and trying to impress his girlfriend, Marty comes up with a ton of twisted murder plots, love triangles, drug lord meets and… well you name it.
For a fast read, a beach read, or break-from-news read, get ready for a fun, light-hearted mystery adventure with Marty and his friends. He always gets his man! One way or another!!
