My debut mystery novel Crescendo is finally on the shelves. (Amazon, Barnes and Noble online, Pages Bookstore in Manhattan Beach and Eso Won Books in Los Angeles) I've been playing drums since age 10 and began studying martial arts late in life. This is probably why my lead character Lou Crasher is a drumming P.I. who knows how to handle himself.

Crescendo…A Lou Crasher Mystery



Paperback
April 7, 2013
Crescendo is my debut action suspense novel. Take a journeyman drummer, toss in hot dames, wisecracks and a little booze and what do you get? Lou Crasher; the greatest drumming private eye that may not live to see another day!

Lou works at rehearsal studio in Hollywood. It’s business as usual until she, Angela walks in. Lou’s cool goes out the window. When Angela’s musical equipment gets stolen Lou volunteers to get it back. Get the gear, get the girl, Lou thinks. Before he knows it Lou is up to his ears in the P.I. business. An innocent search for equipment leads Lou into a world of armed robberies, vicious jack russell terriers, seductive retired exotic dancers and more.

Crescendo is climatic piece of a song in music and it is also the first rock n’ roll romp in the Lou Crasher series. It is available on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble online, Pages bookstore in Manhattan Beach and Eso Won Books in Leimert Park Los Angeles.
