My Brother’s Keeper

Hollywood, 1950 – Former P-51 fighter pilot A. Gavin Byrd is on location for a movie shoot, when he gets a call from the police that his older brother, a prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, has been found dead on his boat. The Lieutenant in charge of the investigation is ready to close the case as a suicide from the start, but “Hawk” doesn’t buy it and decides to find out what really happened for himself.  With help from a former starlet ex-girl friend, a friendly police sergeant whose life was saved in the war by his brother and a nosy Los Angeles Times reporter, Hawk’s search for the truth takes him through cross-fire, dog fights and mine fields in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Burbank and Las Vegas, and leads him into some of the darker corners of his brother’s patient files and private life that he never knew existed.  View at Amazon

Crossroads

Cleveland, 1977 — Grappling with a foreign policy crisis, the U.S. government identifies and targets a hapless rock-and-roller as a Russian spy in a classic case of mistaken identity for an innocent, ordinary, ‘Wrong Man’ hero… or is he?  Unlike any novel you have ever read, this one has a soundtrack. After all, a story whose characters are musicians should have… well… music. Right?  View at Amazon

In the Black

Kansas City, 1965 — Y.T. Erp, Jr. can’t wait to leave for college at the University of California, Berkeley to escape not only the work, but especially all the phlegm-brained idiots at his father’s aerospace company. Leaving behind a pregnant auburn-haired cheerleader, a sensuous red-headed siren plotting to usurp his familial ties, and his two best friends — one who ends up in Vietnam and the other in the Weather Underground — his “trip” on the wild side of the Generation Gap takes him from the psychedelic scene of Haight-Ashbury to the F.B.I.’s Ten Most Wanted list. Meanwhile his father is consumed by the task of managing his unmanageable phlegm-brains in the quest to help fulfill a President’s challenge to “land a man on the moon.”  View at Amazon

Lodging

Lodging — bending of the stalk of a plant (stalk lodging) or the entire plant (root lodging)

While World War II engulfs every nation on the globe, Rebecca and her high school friend Sarah can only dream of escaping a dreary, wind-blown existence in western Kansas, until their boring, stodgy old hometown fills with handsome young men learning to fly Army Air Corps bombers known as Liberators, and their lives are suddenly filled with temptation and, perhaps, true love.  View at Amazon

Somethin’ for Nothin’

Anchorage, 1976 — Albert and Waxy flunk their Intro to Philosophy midterm and drunkenly decide to drop out of The Ohio State University and go to Alaska to “strike it rich” working on the Trans Alaska Pipeline. After Albert’s father cuts off his credit card, they get bartending & dishwashing jobs at an Anchorage bar, where Albert becomes involved with the bar owner’s girlfriend, CiCi, who is also the lead singer in the house band. Albert “acquires” a union card to get a pipeline job for himself, but then learns that Waxy has become part of a crazy scheme with Jimmi the Pilot, Beantown Bob and Moe the Eskimo to find and recover a long lost government payroll from an Air Force cargo plane that crashed in the Alaska Mountain Range decades ago.  View at Amazon

Untethered

At District High School #6241, Connor wants only to get close to Liz, the cheerleader whose locker is just across the hall, and forget the suicide of his father in jail, but his family’s dark past and a rebellious nature force him to the fringes of student social circles and into an unlikely alliance to fight back against a tyranny of conformity.  View at Amazon
