Meet the Author

Born and raised a Minnesota farm-boy, Mark Abramson has lived in San Francisco so long he is now a native. Not only did he survive the worst of the AIDS years in California, but also the Reagan era AND both Bush administrations. He is thrilled that the Beach Reading series, his first foray into fiction, has been so successful and he is grateful to the loyal fans of Tim, Aunt Ruth, Artie and the rest of the gang. For Mark, it’s easier to make up stories about the Castro because no one would believe all of the true ones!

    Engaging, outstanding gay mystery is third of a great new series!

    Twinkish, late 20's Castro waiter Tim Snow is trying to adapt to a long distance relationship with Nick Musgrove, who operates a big florist/garden center in the Russian River area north of San Francisco. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, but it also makes for occasional miscommunications, jealousy and frequent worries about each other. Tim's Aunt Ruth, who moved to San Francisco after visiting Tim here, is settling in as well, bartending at the same restaurant at which Tim works, and dating a successful older man. When the paper reports a possible murder near Nick's home, and Tim gets one of his vivid possibly-clairvoyant dreams that suggests Nick may be in danger, the couple reunite at Nick's cabin, not knowing that the killer could be watching their every move.

    This third in Abramson's "Beach Reading" series continues to develop and provide background on these realistic, emotionally complete characters, while involving them in another outstanding, riveting and suspenseful mystery thriller. While I would recommend reading all of the books in order, for the full effect, each one can also stand alone as a great read. Abramson paints a wonderful picture of the diverse yet cohesive, supportive Castro community, and I can't wait until his next book to take me back to them. Bravo ... five warm sourdough stars out of five!
