Overview

When the pregnant wife and three year old step-daughter of fading movie star, Tom Travis, disappeared, a massive, fruitless, search was launched. Three months later, the body of Travis’s wife was discovered in a shallow grave only a few miles from where Tom had been riding his dune buggy on the day she vanished. Of the three year old little girl, Sarah, no trace was found.

Arrested and placed on trial for capital murder, Tom Travis is now only a days away from an almost certain guilty verdict. Desperate to find some way out, his lawyer hires suspended Ex-Deputy D.A., Steve Janson, to review all the files and find some over-looked clue that might keep Travis off death row.

Janson, whose own wife had been murdered almost two years before, accepts the assignment, not to help Travis, but in the faint hope of finding Sarah still alive. Janson’s investigation leads him on a twisted path from Travis’s mistress to her drug-dealing brother to the writer and producer of his last movie and on across the landscape of Southern California until, eventually, Janson begins to wonder if Travis might really be innocent after all.

My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind.I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled "My Real Name Is Lisa" as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled "The Eyes Of The Blind" as "True Faith." All available at Smashwords, Amazon, and other ebook sellers.All of my novels except "Daniel" are available in $7.99 or $8.99 trade paperback editions at Amazon.com from publisher, Wildside Press.My favorite books that I wrote are "The Concrete Kiss", "Shooting Crows At Dawn", "A Death In Beverly Hills", "True Faith", "Easy Target", and "Doll's Eyes" more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1.I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America.The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp."I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson.My last novel was "The Concrete Kiss."I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: "The Concrete Kiss"; "True Faith"; "Stolen Angel"; "A Death In Beverly Hills", "Doll's Eyes","The Traitor's Mistress", "Daniel" and "Etched In Bone."I have also written the non-novel related screenplays: "Dreamboat" romantic comedy; "Champion's Season" (comedy); "First Starship" (G-rated adventure).

    Verry Good!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are well-developed and the story moves at a good pace. The plot twists were interesting. Just when you think you have figured out everything, a new twist is introduced. I would love to read another book with the main characters.
