The Road to Floradixie is an exhilarating read
for conspiracy enthusiasts. Brewster intertwines the lives of a
magnificent man of superior intellect and strength, and an
improbable retired cop-duo. They unknowingly collide as partners
in a secret war borne out of the patriotic sentiment to, “always
remember.” Fighting terrorism in the shadows, this dubious team
is ill-equipped for the undertaking as they embark on their
chilling journey to the Floradixie truck stop. Their story is a
provocative and rousing chronicle that will keep you turning the
pages right until the end.
Tom, a native of Missouri, came to Lincoln, Illinois when he was
17 years of age to visit his sister who resided in Lincoln. He
landed a job with a local farm and knocked around central
Illinois until becoming an officer with the LPD in 1972.
Although Brewster flourished in his day job as an officer, he continued to
nurture his love for writing. Over the years, he has published a total of four
books, most recently, The Hung Jury.
This fictional work was inspired by the true events of the Smrekar murders
occurring in the late 1970’s in Lincoln while Brewster served as an office for
the Lincoln Police Department.
On Small Business Saturday November 28, 2020, at local favorite in historic
downtown Lincoln, Flossie and Delzena’s, Brewster will be hosting a

your favorite F&D coffee and snacks. He will have a limited supply of copies for
purchase, or you can purchase your advanced copies at any major bookseller:
