Josh WhoevereBook - 2013
Josh burned out on saving the world years ago. Enlisting in the Army as a patriot, Josh found himself caught in a massacre in a small, dusty war, then forced into the role of a hero to cover up. But the life of a fake hero proved too much, and he walked away in the middle of a TV game show. Now he's a small-time con man who wants to stay drunk in the back room of the Western World bar between scams. But the latest scam got out of hand, and now the Russian mob is convinced Josh is a private detective -- the only detective who can find Mother Romanov's missing daughter, media darling Kiev Romanov. Marci, a fired society page editor and wannabe crime reporter, latches on to Josh in hopes of creating a best-selling book, and the two of them fall in love. Kiev's brother Yuri, a giant, homicidal Russian dressed in black who thinks he's Batman, tries to control Josh and Marci but winds up joining them in the search for his sister. Josh uses his scams and disguises to battle New Confederacy fanatics and a quasi-government paramilitary organization of men dressed in gray shirts. He needs to save the girl, stay sober, and keep his identity hidden -- or die.
