Join the film noire, white knuckle ride of raw, rough private eye, Johnny Dark as he discovers the seamy side of the rich and fa-mous, how they treat life, sex and death. Its tautly pace, gusty action will keep you awake as the Johnny follows his shady leads from seedy Scollay Square to earthy Province Town and up to the winter vacation fun of the country’s first classy ski resort of Stow, Vermont. A fast-paced, jovial read, this book is a gritty shocker that introduces the possi-bility of the world’s most heinous murderer, Adolf Hitler, succeeding in performing an impossible hoax on the Allies, by escaping to the United states with his wife, and hiding out with US government help. This absorbing, page-turning thriller finds gumshow Dark losing one ally after another until he’s faced with committing cold-blooded murder. Library Journal: “… For the most part, first novelist Hopkins uses standard plotting, but he dresses it in 1940s garb, patterned with cigarettes, booze, gambling, sex parties, rapid action, and spicy intrigue. Strongly Recommended.” Booklist: “…Johnny Dark, a Boston private eye, is hired by a beautiful woman to find her husband. But when Johnny discovers that his client’s father may have been murdered, and that her brother seems to have disappeared, he realizes this is no simple missing-persons case. Hopkins plays a few variations on the theme by setting the action just after the end of World War II and giving a cameo appearance to one of history’s most reviled villains. Although the author has a tendency to tell rather than show, he has a good feel for the postwar period, and he effectively captures the noir mood of the era.” More

NOIR PRIVATE EYE JOHNNY DARK IS BACK, THIS TIME WITH MURDER AND MAYHEM ON HIS MIND: Spring Training Murders is a hard hitting, fast paced, murder and mayhem thriller, de-signed for sport’s enthusiasts and for all mystery buffs. Each base-clearing chapter leads off with a few authentic newspaper headlines from 1946, while young private eye Johnny Dark is placed undercover on a pennant winning baseball club. His assignment: Find the killer! World War II is just concluded and the GI’s have come marching home to a new and expanding USA. Dark must look the part of a major league player on and off the ball field, in dugouts rubbing elbows with the likes of future Hall of Fame, Ted Williams, Joe Di Maggio, and Bobby Doerr--he even rubs elbows with an aging Babe Ruth, who helps in the investigation. Can Dark fool the fans, the players, the sportswriters, and, at the same time, solve an inhumane murder? Mixed with love, hate, thrills and chills--this pulse quickening spring tale will bring the reader back to simpler times. No I-phones, no TV, no Texting: just lots of everything else that can be touched. Start your reading at home plate for a guaranteed home run--and more. More

Because this one is the same, but different, and easier to digest for not only salespeople, but everyone else - including you. Our lives revolve around our ability to sell our ideas, and it all begins the moment we are born when we learn to whine for milk or a diaper change. Those whines worked. Remember? I could be wrong, but in my opinion the greatest sales book ever published is the Bible. Strip away all the religious connotation and you are left with things like SEW AND REAP, SEEK AND FIND, KNOCK AND THE DOOR SHAll BE OPENED UNTO YOU. And the most important sales tool of all: TREAT YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR NEIGHBOR TO TREAT YOU. Psychologists agree that the biggest problems their patients face is the anxiety of rejection. Who gets rejected more than a salesperson? I have spent over 40 years picking successful people's brains, asking More

The rivers and oceans have all evaporated and a conscious fog now covers the land. After the Robotic, Insect and Climate Wars, many of the hidden creatures of the earth rise to the surface. Mutants, Sea Sprites, Mutmuts, Freemonkeys, Wizards, Werewolves and, yes, humans must work together to overcome surreal obstacles to recreate earth's former glory. Suspend disbelief and dive in. More

It takes several potshots at life today as only creatures that far in the future could view us. The earth has survived the Robotic, Insect and Climate Wars, but just barely. Formerly hidden creatures of earth have risen to the surface. A conscious fog covers the earth. Instead of various races, there are now mutants, Mutmuts, Freemonkeys and twelve foot cockroaches to be contended with. Can Sorry, an aging wizard, and his husband, Morticum, a sexy werewolf, conquer the problems of their day? The book reassures us that we are all just life forces, aligned spiritually and different only bodily. Please suspend disbelief and dive in. It will tickle you in all the right places. More

Webster admits... Edward D. Webster has had an eclectic mixture of careers, ranging from teaching Navajo students to managing transit operations. And he’s the author of a diverse collection of books. Webster admits to a fascination with unique, quirky and bizarre human behavior, and he doesn’t exempt himself from the mix. His acclaimed memoir, A Year of Sundays (Taking the Plunge and our Cat to Explore Europe) shares the eccentric tale of his yearlong adventure in Europe with his spirited blind wife and headstrong, deaf sixteen-year-old cat. His historical novel, Soul of Toledo recounts a diabolical moment in history, when madmen took over the City of Toledo and tortured suspected Jews, 30 years before the Spanish Inquisition. And his 2014 novel, The Gentle Bomber’s Melody, explores what might happen if a nutty woman, bearing a stolen baby, landed on the doorstep of a fugitive bomber hiding from the FBI. The result: irresistible insanity. From the happily unusual of A Year of Sundays to the cruelly perverse in Soul of Toledo, Edward D. Webster shines a light on offbeat aspects of human nature. Webster lives in Southern California with his divine wife and two amazing cats. More
