 Welcome to Boomerang's Home on the Web

Thank you for stopping by. This is the spot for you to check out sample chapters, read reviews (I include the not-so-great right along with the "Oh good lord, this is Pulitzer Prize material!" reader reviews from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads and Smashwords. And, of course, all those links just to the left and down a bit that make it so, so easy for you to own a copy of Boomerang your very own darned self.

Speaking of owning your very own copy, the second edition is available now in both ebook and paperback. One of the benefits of being your own publisher is the opportunity, after time has passed, to take another look at your work and maybe do a tweak here and there. Nothing major at all has been changed in the second edition of "Boomerang", but anytime I can bring something closer to my vision and do it as perfectly as possible, why not?

Update: May, 2017. Lots of readers have asked "when are we going to be able to revisit these characters?" I am happy to say Ted, Jerry, Director Fatherday and some of the other characters from "Boomerang" are beginning to get their lives frazzled in a brand new story. Stay tuned for progress reports and more information. And in the meantime, tell all your friends to check out "Boomerang"!


Boomerang is a comic novel of international intrigue played out by characters operating way outside their comfort zones. Available in paperback or ebook. Links to retailers can be found just to the left!

Here is what Boomerang is all about:

Ted Hogwood's beloved Sarah, a jazz guitar, is in the window of Topp Dollar Pawn. The only way he can get the money to rescue her is to accept an assignment from the AABC, a not nearly official branch of the United States Intelligence community. He is partnered with Jerry Kwiatkowski, master of the Hammond B-3 organ and chronic flatulence sufferer, to steal a boomerang containing secrets that should have died with J. Edgar Hoover over thirty years ago. It would be a simple job if only they knew what they were doing. And if a crossbow wielding assassin, two unemployed Australian women, the Director of Central Intelligence and a clothing optional ex-cheerleader were not also hot on the boomerang's trail. 

And here is what one reader has to say about Boomerang.

A Wonderful Quirky Caper, 17 May 2011

This review is from: Boomerang (Kindle Edition)
Boomerang is a wonderfully exuberant chase caper, a cleverly executed laugh out loud gem full of quirky characters, impossible scenarios, unlikely allies, all pulled together by the brilliantly skilful penmanship of Alan Hutcheson. An absolutely wonderful book...a joy to read from start to hectic finish.
