Gotcha! is the first novel by author Wayne Hancock. What happens when a riveting murder occurs among the good, yet ordinary citizens of small-town America, already trying to deal with the extraordinary events of a memorable era.
"The Chief and Clarence went down the steps to the basement of the funeral home. There was a stench of chemicals in the air, even though an exhaust fan vented out into an alley behind the building.

An insightful novel set in a small town in Mid-America during Great Depression, Hancock presents a strong sense of the history of the people who participate in this murder cum character study...a really good read!"- Anne Herbert, Intructor of American Literature
