They Call Me Nooner — The Novel by Laine Scheliga
Dade Nooner is a brawling Texas drifter skilled with words but quick on the trigger. Joined by a band of loco misfits and carrying a sack of rattlesnakes, Nooner is compelled to embark on an epic search for a lost geological Indian treasure by a mystic hunchbacked Apache. When the band encounters the deranged Roid Brothers, torture and bloodshed carry Nooner and his compadres through the gates of hell itself. “They Call Me Nooner” is an unforgettable black comedy of survival, revenge, and the redemption of a man driven to reluctant violence and reluctant surrender in his search for a place to call home.
