Long Gone Man – Kobo


In a thick fog, a ferry docks on Glenphiddie Island and disgorges Singer Brown’s decrepit van. The homeless singer is there to exact revenge on the man who destroyed her life but someone has already killed Johnny Vibes. And now the murderer is coming after Singer.

Each of the former members of the band, Vortex, are hiding sins both old and new, secrets worth killing for, but Singer has one ally. Or does she? Johnny Vibes’ wife has as much to lose as Singer if she doesn’t agree to give Singer an alibi but that doesn’t mean Lauren didn’t kill her husband.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

From the very first sentence, readers will sense they are in the hands of a master storyteller. With discerning eye and sensitivity to the feelings of a stressed woman, we land in a decrepit Dodge van laboring up a narrow, twisting, fog-enshrouded mountain road toward an unknown destination and what is meant to be a long-overdue confrontation.


Long Gone Man was a great introduction to this new series and I’m looking forward to seeing where Phyllis Smallman takes Singer Brown and this series next.


I’m a big fan of the Sherri Travis mystery series by this author, so I decided to give this new series a try. At first, I wasn’t quite sure I was going to like it, but once I got into the story I found myself becoming interested in these new characters, especially the quirky main character. Fun read, good story line and interesting characters. Will definitely read the next one.


Long Gone Man is one of those “you can’t put the book down” novels. The characters are intriguing, both likeable and not. You have someone to cheer for and someone to rant against. The novel is fast paced and tense with a sense of humor weaved throughout. Smallman has a way of making the reader as if like they are in motion with the novel. I’m looking forward to reading the next in the Singer Brown Mystery Series.
