{Book Spotlight} "Alex & Katija: High and Mighty" by Gordon Hooper


Alex and Katija are quite the pair. Selfish, cruel, greedy, sleazy and violent—why, the negative adjectives could easily fill a small volume of their own. Over the top, always offensive and never politically correct—their sole redeeming quality is, they are not child molesters. Alex is heir and owner of the Holstein Private Investigation Agency, located in Stockholm, Sweden. While he is the agency’s brains, Katija provides the brawn, as resident henchwoman. Their setup is sweet, with a never-ending supply of clients appearing at their doorstep and asking for help, only to be swindled out of their money, robbed, or beaten, and then sent on their way. Except some who, wrapped in chains, are dumped into the murky waters of nearby Nybro Viken. Alex and Katija fight the natural as well as the supernatural—the only thing they really dread is the horrors of gainful employment. This threat is ever present as their finances are chronically atrocious, usually due to the black vacuum of the weekend, with all its powders and pills. Their cases take them across the globe—so beware! There is NOWHERE to hide.




Gordon Hooper is the author of “Alex and Katija, High and Mighty.” It was published on, November 6 2012, courtesy of Seattle publisher New Libri Press. One could tell his life’s story with a poem: Born by gypsies Raised by wolves Schooled by fools Employed by cretins Scooped up by Libri Highly inaccurate and somewhat irrelevant prose, yes yes I know – what are you, my mother? But when has truth, that dull ignoramus, ever been able to measure up to a well-crafted lie? Most of his work is created solely to make people laugh, or at the very least smile. He tries to be offensive as often as humanly possible. When not – then he is most likely being semi-blackmailed by his publisher, who has a hell of a job in keeping us all out of jail and preventing the premises of New Libri Press from being torched. Contrary to his wishes he currently resides in the depressing little freeze box of Stockholm, Sweden. He was born on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain in 1977, but was imported to the frigid shores of Sweden at the tender age of two. He is currently working on the sequel “Alex and Katija, The terrible Two.” For more warping of morals, bending of truths and breaking of laws – enter the electronic vortex via the portal below. Alex and Katja is his first published book. You can visit Gordon Hooper's website at
