Michael Darling’s first novel, Got Luck, was released on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2016. Perfectly appropriate since the novel borrows from Celtic mythology and the Irish Gaelic language.
The novel hit #1 on Amazon in December 2016.
From the Back Cover
Police-officer-turned-private-investigator Goethe “Got” Luck is known for rolling with the punches and never taking anything too seriously. When he picks up a seemingly dead-end murder case, his life begins to take a crazy turn. Shot at, chased by people he has never met, and attacked by an invisible liondog, Got quickly learns that there is more to this world than meets the eye.
He discovers the Fae. The Eternals. They who dwell in the Behindbeyond. Once, they ruled over ancient realms, but over the centuries, their power dwindled. Now someone wants to restore their rule and subjugate humankind. All it will cost is thousands of human lives.
The clock is ticking. Getting the world out of this one will take a couple friends, more than a few well-placed insults, and a whole lot of Luck.
“Got Luck is the private detective Harry Dresden would hire to solve a murder.” HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – Paul Genesse, author of the bestselling Iron Dragon series
“Got Luck checks off all my ‘must haves’ for a gritty detective story. If I ever ran into a problem the local cops couldn’t solve, I’d be lucky to have Got on my side—and so would you.” – Ali Cross, author of the Desolation series
“Witty and charming, Got Luck is an enchanting nod to a detective noir.” –Candace Thomas, author of the Vivatera series
