Introducing “Perpetual Motion – A Cynical Jones Case”


Allow me to officially introduce my latest book, “Perpetual Motion – A Cynical Jones Case.” This mystery/thriller is now available exclusively to Amazon Kindle readers. In February, I plan on putting it out on all digital formats, such as Nook, Apple, etc.

Cynical Jones is private-investigator hired to find the supposed inventor of a perpetual motion machine. Needless to say, he’s skeptical. When the PI finds the young man cheating at roulette in Vegas, he’s not sure if he’s a clever conman or a brilliant, albeit desperate inventor. It doesn’t take long for a professional hit squad and the FBI to enter the picture, which makes Cynical consider the invention’s legitimacy…and the implications of a device that could actually be capable of producing free and abundant energy. If it is real, it will be up to a jaded ex-detective to protect an invention that could revolutionize the world.

Primarily set in Los Angeles, Perpetual Motion takes the reader around the high stakes roulette wheels in Vegas, into LA’s underground clubs, through the desert in a high speed car chase, and over the ocean in a private jet. Beneath the fast-paced story, there is an underlying message about confronting the environmental and energy challenges that face us all.

In her review, Trudie Barreras said, “There is a lot of delicious humor, fast action, sensitive characterization… Cynical Jones is a flawed but genuine human being, and the way the story plays out is, in my opinion, completely authentic.” (Thanks Trudie!) The Vine Reader for Amazon went on to say, “Most important, I absolutely agree with Jeff Fulmer’s perspective that the forces of greed and self-interest which provide the motivation for all the mayhem that occurs in the story are terrifyingly real.”

More information, including an excerpt and a trailer, can be found on the Perpetual Motion website. Perpetual Motion is priced at only $2.99 on Kindle. If you’re able to check it out, I’d love to know what you think too. Thanks for reading.

I grew up in Franklin Tennessee, just outside of Nashville, where I attended a charismatic church that sincerely tried to follow Christ's teachings and actively sought the gifts of the Holy Spirit. During the summer of 84, I interned in DC with the Reagan-Bush Re-Election campaign and was indoctrinated in the dark arts of neo-conservatism. After graduating from Pepperdine University in Malibu, I worked in the financial services industry in Atlanta; then I drifted back to Southern California for a few introspective years before eventually moving home to Tennessee. Along the way, I began to question some of my longstanding beliefs and attempted to reconcile my political and religious views. Increasingly, I became saddened and angered with how Christianity was so often misrepresented for personal and political gain. Hometown Prophet was written out of that frustration.
