La Jolla Spindrift

La Jolla Spindrift by Jack Trolley

“Written in a lean, wryly humorous style, the fourth Tommy Donahoo novel is short on pages but long on action. The biggest mystery is why Jack Trolley (aka Tom Ardies) hasn’t won the Edgar Award yet.” Detroit Free Press

San Diego police detective Tommy Donahoo is up against a crazy Mafia hitman, a rogue FBI agent, a scheming millionaire, and a horny heiress named Travata “Jumpy” Havershot as he investigates the death of a Navy SEAL, a kidnapping, a helicopter crash, millions of missing dollars, and a sunken ship, among other things in this rollicking, action-packed adventure. 

“Jack Trolley” was a pseudonym for Tom Ardies.

Reviews For La Jolla Spindrift

La Jolla Spindrift 5.0

There is a lot of good detective work, sharp, tough, realistic and very well written.

New York Times

La Jolla Spindrift 5.0

Trolley is like a noir voice out of the past, fast talking, sardonic, generating a great deal of suspense.

Los Angeles Times

La Jolla Spindrift 5.0

The non-stop, madcap storytelling delivers great escape reading.

Publishers Weekly

La Jolla Spindrift 5.0

Profane and slam-bang.
