Too bad this quirky, fashion-backward uncle isn’t exactly hero material

Uncle
and Ants
A
Silicon Valley Mystery Book 1
by
Marc Jedel
Genre:
Cozy Mystery 
 
Mysterious
attacks. Mischievous nieces.
 Can
a clueless uncle catch a tech-savvy killer … and be home before
bedtime?
When
a freak accident hospitalizes
Marty
Golden’s
sister and condemns him to
babysitter duty, he thinks it’s just another case of hardwired bad
luck
in Silicon Valley.
Until a suspicious murder suggests the mishap was no mere
coincidence. Something must be done.
Too
bad this
quirky, fashion-backward
uncle isn’t exactly hero material.
Convinced
his sister is in mortal danger,
this
amateur sleuth
follows clues to an
oddball array of suspects. Armed with nothing but an eye for detail
and
powers of self-delusion, Marty
tangles with gangsters, a cantankerous school secretary, and a
perplexing woman he can’t help but fall for. Glitches in his
investigation seem like a piece of cake compared to dinner-prep and
bedtime stories with his two precocious, pre-teen nieces.
Can
Marty catch the culprit, save his sister, and get his life back in
order before he gets unplugged?
Uncle
and Ants
 is the first novel in
a refreshingly modern mystery series set in Silicon Valley. If you
like clever humor, sassy side characters, and average Joes facing
extraordinary circumstances, then you’ll love this twisty mystery.

Marc
Jedel writes humorous murder mysteries. In his high-tech marketing
roles, he’s also written fiction. These are just called emails, ads,
and marketing collateral.
In
his family, Marc was born first — a fact his sister never lets him
forget, no matter what milestone age she hits. For most of Marc’s
life, he’s been inventing stories. Some, especially when he was
young, involved his sister as the villain. As his sister’s brother
for her entire life, he feels highly qualified to tell tales of the
evolving, quirky sibling relationship in the Silicon Valley Mystery
series.
Family
and friends would tell you that the protagonist in his stories, Marty
Golden, isn’t much of a stretch of the imagination for Marc, but he
proudly resembles that remark.
Like
Marty, Marc lives in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley, where he
writes within earshot of the doppler effect of the local ice cream
truck. Unlike Marty, Marc has a wonderful wife and a neurotic but
sweet, small dog, who much prefers the walks resulting from writer’s
block than his writing.
