The Legend of Colgan Toomey
By Dargan Ware

Series Description:

This is The Legend of Colgan Toomey, a kaleidoscope of a novel that presents a man's life from the myriad perspectives of those he touched, none of whom can see the full picture. 

Colgan Toomey was a hometown legend in Kellyville, Alabama. He had been a precocious child who’d delighted, amazed, and often bewildered everyone he met. He grew into the town’s biggest, and perhaps only, star: a football recruit that attracted every coach from there to Canada, an Eagle Scout, and eventually a medical student at the University of Texas. When the town heard that he’d been killed by Salvadoran rebels while volunteering on a Doctors Without Borders mission in Central America, everyone for miles around stopped to mourn.

What exactly happened to Colgan Toomey?

Colgan’s death was impossible to understand – tragic, mysterious, and slightly exotic. He died a hero, though, with a massive funeral in the town’s football stadium, and a monument in Kellyville’s only graveyard even though his body was never found. No one, least of all his best friend P.J. Campbell, had any clue of the truth behind the Legend of Colgan Toomey. It is a legend of many facets, all of which look different from every angle. Look inside to see it for yourself.

Category/Genre(s): Adult Fiction, Mystery/Thriller
