Croatoan is an ebook by emerging author Matt Halton, who is creating some awesome, intellectual, edgy, exciting and thought-provoking writing. His novel Croatoan features crime, conspiracy theories, synchronicity, lost cities, hippies, aliens, politics, mysteries, bumbling policemen, murder, disappearances, secret symbols, pirates, treasure and ghost stories. The dialogue is witty, pithy, smart and often laugh-out-loud funny, and I especially love the dynamics between the keystone cops Lester and Doug.
