Front cover and spine of novel entitled Russian Nonsensical by Edward D. Webster


Russian Deceptions, American Deep Fakes, Unorthodox Ideas, and Gentle Love

 In Russian Nonsensical, Edward D. Webster weaves a spellbinding embroidery of mystery and intrique, with threads of betrayal, exotic thefts, international adventure, and the looming specter of war in Ukraine.

Pastor Clem Dudas is a man of exquisite contradictions; a charismatic preacher who features rattlesnakes in his worship, a businessman developing fake AI “political exposés,” a schemer with clandestine Russian connections. Bud Randolpf shares Clem’s politics, he loves snakes, and he travels to Russia to find love. When the snakes go missing and Russia attacks Ukraine, it all descends into chaos.

Detective Fiction in the era of Trump


If you’re astounded by claims of pedophiles running the government, the thought of micro-chips doing the backstroke in vaccines, and the belief that the earth is truly flat, wait till you meet Stan and Bud. The two detectives argue over everything crazy or sane, while trying to solve multiple missing persons cases that span two decades. Along the way they encounter Covid-19, preachers claiming holy healing magic, a man who channels his deceased canine, a brush with January 6 madness and a body or two residing at the bottom of a mine pit in Navajo country, New Mexico. – And, despite the chaos, a sweet romance.

...loved, loved Edward Webster's descriptions and how he explained the imagery around Viçente. Viçente is such a strong human character ... not an epic hero, but a human who falls in love and makes mistakes.
