Description

Mystery Tribune is bringing its innovative edge to book-length fiction with its inaugural publication of Brian Silverman’s debut novel, Freedom Drop.

One of the only new writers featured in Best American Mystery Stories 2018, which included such luminaries as Michael Connelly, James Lee Burke, Lee Child, and T.C. Boyle, Silverman’s story, “Breadfruit,” was first published in Mystery Tribune and established the characters, Len and Tubby, found in subsequent stories appearing in our magazine and elsewhere. Freedom Drop is the novel that those stories pioneered.

Len Buonfiglio is a former New York bar owner and family man who has disappeared to a small island in the Caribbean. When a genial tour guide, Rawle “Big Tree” Johns is a suspect in an American woman’s fall from a cliff, Johns’ mother enlists Buonfiglio’s help to free her son and prove his innocence. Conflicted by the need to spend time with his 16-year old daughter who he hasn’t seen in years, Mr. Len as he’s known on the island, reluctantly agrees to help. During his investigation he discovers there are other, much more powerful forces involved in the woman’s death that threaten both his life and his family.

A long-time writer and editor, Brian Silverman has written about travel, food, sports and music. His short stories have been nominated for the Edgars and Derringers.

1 review for Freedom Drop By Brian Silverman

  1. Steve Aberle

    Len Buonfiglio formerly from the Bronx has sold his bar business, divorced his wife, and left his kids to restart life on the Caribbean island of St. Pierre. He opens a sports bar and enjoys the good life, except when he is asked to solve crimes that the police cannot or refuse to investigate. A young travel reporter has fallen off a cliff named Freedom Drop and a local stands accused and is incarcerated awaiting trial. The accused mother asks Len to investigate, and he does so with some reluctance. Len runs afoul of lackadaisical police, corrupt island politicians, and vengeful family members. Meanwhile, Len’s teenaged daughter is visiting and behaves as teenagers do. Len must juggle his daughter’s moods while staying out of danger and maintain his business. Freedom Drop is entertaining, and Brian Silverman has created memorable characters that readers will want to follow.
