Christopher Finch was born and raised on the island of Guernsey in the British Channel Islands. He lived in London and Paris before moving to New York City in the late 1960s, the setting of Good Girl, Bad Girl. After working as a freelance writer and artist in New York for more than two decades, he moved to Los Angeles, where he continues to write and make art. Christopher has mounted one-man shows in both New York and Los Angeles, and his work has been included in museum exhibitions. He has occasionally written for television; his Judy Garland biography, Rainbow, was made into a movie for television. He is married to Linda Rosenkrantz, who is an author and the cofounder of the website nameberry.com. They have a daughter named Chloe.
Good Girl, Bad Girlby Christopher Finch
It’s 1968, New York City is in a state of mayhem, and private eye Alex Novalis is flat broke. So he accepts a mundane missing
That was a tough year to be a New Yorker. The city was so broke there was a rumor going around that the mayor had been spotted on the Bowery, cleaning windshields at stoplights in the hope of scoring a nickel, or maybe a nickel bag.
It’s 1968, New York City is in a state of mayhem, and private eye Alex Novalis is flat broke. So he accepts a mundane missing persons gig from wealthy construction mogul Gabriel Kravitz, whose eighteen-year-old daughter, Lydia, has disappeared.
The only lead is that Lydia had been sleeping with Jerry Pedrosian, a radical artist and known womanizer. But there are few clues, and everyone in Lydia’s life seems to be hiding something…including her miniskirted best friend, Andrea Marshall, who Novalis is inconveniently attracted to. And as he traverses the city from scummy artists’ lofts in pre-gentrified SoHo to luxury penthouses overlooking Central Park he’ll face more danger than he signed on for.
A coolly sophisticated detective story and portrait of late 1960s New York City, Good Girl, Bad Girl offers a glimpse at the forbidden sex, politics, art, drugs, and counterculture violence that ran rampant in its once gloriously gritty streets.
