Today we have the pleasure of meeting up with author to talk about The Things that Last Forever (, Level Best Books, 337 pages), a Mystery Police Procedural, book three in the Vic Lenoski Mysteries series.

In The Things that Last Forever, Peter W. J.

Throughout it all, Hayes paints a vivid picture of Pittsburgh detective Vic Lenoski’s emotional struggles that will resonate with every reader. A terrific novel!" —Alan Orloff, Thriller- and Derringer-Award winning author of I KNOW WHERE YOU SLEEP

"The mystery plot itself is riveting; Hayes expertly guides readers from lead to lead, and they'll find themselves fully immersed not only in the search, but also in the depiction of the protagonist's mounting desperation. A captivating and emotionally intelligent crime drama." - Kirkus Reviews.

Set in 2055, the world is run by robots and virtual data, while the weather is controlled by satellite dishes. Arts and culture are no more than distant memories. People are angry, placated by prescribed visits to rage rooms to vent their boredom, fury, and discontent. Beneath the sunny skies and behind the garbage-free suburban McMansions live deeply disturbed, materialistic families.
