THE INTROVERT BEARS FILTHY WITNESS – Michael Paul Michaud (Releasing January 9th, 2021)
This is book three in THE INTROVERT series!
Newly estranged from Donna, The Introvert is selected as one of twelve jurors on a notorious murder trial, forcing him to navigate a litany of uncomfortable social interactions, this time with no avenue of escape. Equal parts harrowing and hilarious, The Introvert Bears Filthy Witness is the third entry in the life of one very anti-social and unexpected anti-hero.
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars
This is book three in the Introvert series, and despite that, it was pretty easy to follow along and felt like it could be a standalone. Based on other reviews I’ve seen, they all highly recommend starting from the beginning to get to know our main character better. THE INTROVERT BEARS FILTHY WITNESS was a quick read at just over 200 pages and I really enjoyed our unique main character known as The Introvert.
The Introvert is on the jury for a high-profile murder trial, and being very anti-social, he is put to the test by being forced out of his comfort zone. Definitely some moments of dark humor sprinkled in throughout and I felt like I got a good feel for him. Definitely a little different when it comes to a crime fiction/courtroom drama but if that’s what you’re looking for in a sometimes repetitive genre, then I would recommend trying this one out.
About the Author:
I am an American-Canadian citizen, a criminal prosecutor, and author of BILLY TABBS (& THE GLORIOUS DARROW) (bitingduckpress) and THE INTROVERT series (Black Opal Books). I have a B.A. in English from McMaster University, an Honors B.A. in Political Science (summa cum laude) from McMaster University, a J.D. from The University of Western Ontario (with an international exchange completed at Washington & Lee). I have won awards for both my community service and my work as a criminal prosecutor. I am a member of Crime Writers of Canada and International Thriller Writers. I also strive to maintain a strong social media author presence, including at facebook.com/michaelpaulmichaud, and have made regular appearances on SiriusXM’s Canada Talks. I am an unabashed and unapologetic zealot of Twin Peaks. Literary influences are primarily Orwell, Dickens, Vonnegut, Dostoevsky.
I was inspired to write The Introvert after reading Crime and Punishment (Dostoevsky) and The Stranger (Camus). It has been likened to Dexter and American Psycho meeting Office Space and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. I also consider it the most unorthodox of animals rights books. Every dog lover should read them.
