After witnessing his first murder, which is a young girl, he is disgusted by what he sees and decides to intervene in the physical world when the girl's murderer tries to kill again. This creates unintended consequences which rope in the local Sheriff. Long answer: This is somewhat of an experimental novella, told from four different first-person points of view. The story isn't in chronological order; however, it's told in the order in which the reader is meant to receive the information. There are murder mystery aspects to the story as well as a supernatural side. I wanted to take a grim, somewhat fantastic narrative and tell it through sober inner-monologues. To me it seemed like an interesting juxtaposition. Conceptually, the novella was influenced by my listening to the Coheed and Cambria albums. There is a whole back story behind the music; I got bits and pieces of it through the lyrics, but was left to fill in the gaps with my imagination. I would encourage you to read some of the blog posts on my profile--specifically the chronology of The Camaro Murders and the one about the Driver's world. They will both help frame the context around the story.(less)

Discovering new authors with great stories is always a rewarding experience, especially when those stories fall outside the typical books I read. Ian Lewis wrote a relatively short book (around 100 pages), that is compelling (I finished in one day--not typical for me), otherworldly, and yet down to Earth. I can imagine the voices--how they sound in my head, as I read the reflections of each character. Each narrative is first person, well crafted, thoughtful. Each progresses the story, making me ...more

Took me a while to pick it up between jobs, but I was hooked.

A fantastic read and a pretty short one for anyone who wants a taster or a bug adventure in less time.

But a hugely original idea, nothing quiet like I've read before! But I can't say much about it without blurting everything out and ruining it all for everyone.

But I wouldn't highly recommend this!

I recommend this novella for anyone who is looking for a new series to start reading. The story unfolds in a nonlinear fashion but is never confusing or meandering. I felt that only the tip of the iceberg is revealed in this story, leaving plenty of this new world and its characters to explore in future installments. I am especially intrigued by the character, the Driver, who seems to be the anchor of this universe. Lady in Flames is the continuation...hopefully a third part will be released soo ...more

I couldn't believe how quickly I read this book. I was not trying to rush through it but I was really engaged and time just flew. I struggled at first because each chapter changes point of view and era. I was trying to keep track of the characters and their respective timelines. I had to keep flipping back to earlier chapters to remember "when" I was and who was relating their tale. After a few chapters of this I gave up and just rolled with it. Once I stopped working so hard to keep it all stra ...more

I would definitely recommend the Camaro Murders. It is a mystery that contains elements of the supernatural  and pulls you in right from the start. From the moment I began reading it, I was intrigued by the authors style of writing and I quickly became invested in the development of the charachters, particularly the Driver. The author does a remarkably good job at developing each of the characters and providing each one with a distinct voice throughout the story.  The multiple perspectives used ...more

Recommends it for: murder mystery fans, Christians who like complex fiction
Recommended to Jennifer by: Aaron Miller and West Side Writers Group
This book contains multiple first person points of view and the author does a good job of juggling them. The Sheriff ends up reopening a cold murder case and also sees a black Camaro around town. Does the Camaro have anything to do with the murder? That is what Sheriff Hildersham intends to find out! There is also a bit of a Christian/religious twist to the writing that makes you think.

Terrible end. Horrible.

The story was ok, but it had such potential for a great ending and it just fizzles out. I kept thinking I had a defective version of the ebook, that it was missing a few chapters. but no - the list of chapters shows I made it to the end. The worthless, unfulfilling end

Ian Lewis prefers not to be bound by a particular genre. Though the inspiration for his work varies, it often finds roots in something he dreamt. He strives for a gritty realism and maintains an interest in the humanity of his characters. His hope is that readers find themselves haunted by his stories in the sense that the narrative sticks with them long after they've finished reading, leaving the ...more
