What happens when the fuel pump on Jimmy Olson¿s Volkswagen dies and he ends up in Las Vegas, New Mexico, instead of his intended goal, Santa Fe? Instead of becoming a book critic for a profitable newspaper, he becomes an inexperienced reporter at a money-losing newspaper just as the local district attorney has disappeared. Two more people disappear before Olson stumbles onto the secret and saves Las Vegas without even solving the crime. That¿s a summary of a first novel, Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Jimmy Olson saves Las Vegas, (yes, really, Jimmy Olson) by retired Penn State journalism professor R. Thomas Berner. Since retiring in 2003, Berner has become a freelance writer and photographer, producing travel pieces for the most part. But he¿s had a life-long desire to write a novel (What English major hasn¿t? he asks.) and he finally did it after settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico.Was this review helpful?
