Manufacturer Description

A hobo turns up dead in a bin. Among the gawkers is Acey Albert Tapp, a jobless man facing the death of his mother. Acey finds employment with an aging PI. He takes on a case involving a local woman gone missing for five decades, and again crosses paths with the deceased drifter. Only this time the sighting is in an old photo showing the hobo and the missing woman as teenage sweethearts.

Coached by his mentor and boss, and despite a series of seemingly unrelated personal tragedies, Acey delves deeper into the woman’s movement prior to her disappearance. What follows is a roller-coaster ride for Acey, his boss and a killer determined to keep secret his involvement in multiple murders.

What They Are Saying About The Hobo Chronicles

Schenkel’s plot contains intriguing twists and turns, moments that will tug at your heartstrings, and an action-packed, thoroughly satisfying climax. All of the characters ring true, even the ones who have only walk-on parts, and their troubles and foibles will be as familiar as any of our own. Finally, The Hobo Chronicles has a marvelous sense of place. You’ll find yourself looking for Willow Falls on a map of Michigan or thinking that you’ve driven down that street or had a drink in that bar.

The Hobo Chronicles is a definite five-star book. Don’t miss it.

Product Information


Meet S. E. Schenkel

Mysteries have always captivated me. Any kind. Mysteries of faith, creation, people. The mystery of an empty house, trap door. A neighbor’s weirdness. But I didn’t start writing mysteries until two events collided: a power outage and working under the dictatorship of the manager of a grocery store. The outage and its subsequent boredom handed me pen and paper, and my boss supplied the drive to write a story titled—“Murder in the Meat Department”. From that day until now, writing has been right up there with oxygen and chocolate.

Numerically, I’m grandmother to eight, stepmother to four, and sibling to five. I was a member of a missionary group (aka nun) for seventeen years, worked for ten of those years in Africa, have been married for over thirty years. And if you can’t figure out my age from that, you and I have equally appalling math skills.

As for my personality, what I feel, think, value... You’ll find clues to that in my mysteries.
