The Introvert Confounds Innocence

Author – Michael Paul Michaud

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.

The Blurb –

THE INTROVERT CONFOUNDS INNOCENCE continues the story of the eponymous anti-hero introduced in THE INTROVERT.

With his life disrupted by an unscrupulous work colleague and a bully at his son Toby’s school, things go from bad to worse when his neighbor’s abusive boyfriend goes missing, plunging the introvert into the center of a murder investigation.

Increasingly hounded by a meddlesome detective, and with his thoughts continually urging him to make people “red and open” and to “achieve it” with his girlfriend Donna, what follows is a sometimes brutal, oftentimes hilarious, and absurdist account of the life of one very anti-social and unexpected anti-hero.

Today is my stop on The Introvert Confounds Innocence blog tour.  Many thanks to Sarah Hardy BOTBS Publicity for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This book is the follow up to The Introvert which I reviewed last month The Introvert.

This book can be read as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading The Introvert first so you can get a sense of the character and how he thinks.

I really enjoyed the first book and this one did not disappoint.  This book sees our main character still in his relationship with Donna,and they have a son together.  It is not a light hearted read but is similar to Dexter as you read his thoughts.   Although dark it is very funny,and he finds himself with a lot of potential victims in this book as he discovers he is living next door to a domestic abuser, he is in competition with a new salesman at work and his son is being bullied at school.

An usual character but you do find yourself rooting for him.  Looking forward to the next one.
