WHAT READERS SAY

Whether on Amazon or Goodreads Readers have good things to say about Dana Summers’ Books

If you are a fan of fast moving witty murder mysteries then you need to read Dana Summers ‘Drawn and Buried’. His Editorial Cartoonist and wanna be detective Tim Ryder takes you on a really fun romp around the City Beautiful while simultaneously looking for and trying to stay away from a killer on the loose. He captures the essence of Orlando in locales with real life characters that the tourists very rarely get to see. There is a lot of irreverent and funny banter that you would expect from an Editorial Cartoonist but without the visual drawings that are left to your imagination from his slightly flawed hero. I have always enjoyed Dana’s cartoons and his book is a logical extension of his sense of humor. Also, it’s a darn good murder mystery! Put in on your reading list, you will thank me.

Good debut mystery with a complex and enjoyable protagonist. The protagonist is a cartoonist as is the author. I found the peek into his world very enjoyable. He has a slightly noir voice with a dry sense of humor. It contrasts nicely with the Orlando setting. There are several crimes and lots to keep you guessing. I’d like to see this protagonist again.
