A SHOT IN THE ARM is coming on April 2!
For Immediate Release:
Coming on April 2, 2012:
"A Shot In The Arm", a new mystery/thriller by S.F. Attorney, Barry S. Willdorf, takes the reader to the San Francisco of the early 1970s. Travel back in time to visit a Bay Area rarely portrayed in today's literature. Peruse the menu at the Trident Restaurant on the Sausalito waterfront. Slide seamlessly among the old, waterlogged houseboats that lined the shore. Mingle with Vietnam era soldiers and sailors, black militants and hippies. Watch Raymond Chandler's movie "The Long Goodbye" for a couple of bucks. Order a beer for a buck. Score drugs of all kinds on practically every street corner. Stroll the Fillmore district before it was gentrified. Witness a car chase over the dirt roads that once crisscrossed Bernal Hill. Sneak into the City’s shipyards and foundries when they still bustled with activity. Spend time at the Hamilton Air Force Base officer's club. Sip Java where longshoremen once prowled. Tag along with rogue government agents as they scheme to arm anti-communist guerrillas using drug profits.
"A Shot In The Arm delivers a dark murder plot with characters that are right on the money." Mark Rudd, author of Underground: My life in SDS and the Weathermen.
"The legal details are sharp; the drinking and drugging and low life neighborhoods are Day-Glo vivid." Meredith Sue Willis, author of Ten Strategies to Write Your Novel and Out of the Mountains.
"A detective story with a sense of geography, a sense of morality, and a sense of humor." Frances Lefkowitz, author of To Have Not.
"Gripping. Exciting. Add 'A Shot in the Arm' to the classic tales of the City by the Bay." Hilton Obenzinger, author of Cannibal Eliot and the Lost Histories of San Francisco and Busy Dying
A Shot In The Arm is part of a trilogy being published by Whiskey Creek Press. Part One, Burning Questions, was published last August. Both novels are available in print and as e-books from the publisher: http://whiskeycreekpress.com/ , Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Part three, The Fourth Conspirator, will be available this fall.
