Book Description

The Summer We Lost Alice by Jan Strnad

The Indie Book of the Day for 24th of January, 2013!

Genre: Suspense, Domestic Life

The defining moments of young Ethan Opochensky’s life occurred during the summer he spent with his cousin Alice in the small, rural town of Meddersville. Three children disappeared that summer, his cousin among them. Nine-year-old Ethan believes he knows the killer, but his story is so fanciful, it is dismissed out of hand.

Twenty-five years later, children are once again disappearing in Meddersville. Ethan returns to Meddersville to separate fact from childish fantasy, to discover the truth behind Alice’s disappearance, and to bring her killer to justice.

The Summer We Lost Alice is a story of loss and grief, of courage, of family, and ultimately, of healing and the triumph of an enduring spirit.

Full length novel. Contains paranormal elements, a trace of mild language, no explicit sex. No child violence.

Read Sample

Jan Strnad contracted the writing bug as an adolescent when he typed out the short story, “The Available Data on the Worp Reaction” by Lion Miller. Looking at the typewritten pages, he thought, “I can do this!” and determined that, when the time came, he would make his living as a writer.

He began his professional career by writing comics, then moved from his home town of Wichita, Kansas, to Los Angeles where he became a staff writer for Disney Television Animation. He worked for most of the Hollywood studios, including Sony/Columbia, Warner Bros., Universal, MGM and others before turning his attention to becoming a novelist.

His first published novel was “Risen,” a supernatural thriller, now out of print, which has been resurrected as an ebook. With his second novel, “The Summer We Lost Alice,” he went directly to self-publishing through Amazon.

He is a lover of dogs, estimating that a hundred or more dogs have passed through his household, most of them as fosters awaiting adoption. He has an inexplicable fondness for 1950s science fiction movies and is fascinated by the workings and failings of the human brain.
