Comedy's "the rock and roll of the Eighties," and Rex Black, owner of New York's hottest comedy club, means to brand the zeitgeist! He scouts clients, builds clubs, appeases his Mafioso landlord, plays chicken with Madonna. Circling, her fin hardly breaking the waves, is comedian Rosetta Stone. "A crackling good read, a satirical foray into go-go 80s business culture!" —Toronto Post City Magazines
All That Money
Inspired by the sensational 1934 kidnapping of Mrs. Alice Speed Stoll, "All That Money" is a fast-moving reverse mystery that takes a rollicking ride with a sexy heiress intent on hurrying her inheritance along, her handsome young lover, hapless husband and great relations. "The kind of novel Chandler or Hamett might write if they were basing their work on true crime today!" —M. Lee Alexander
New York / Siena: Two Short Novels
Two sharply rendered novels: "The Man Who Owned New York" follows the Kansas farmer who goes to New York in 1907 to reclaim the long-lost family property, and the sympathetic young Episcopal priest who will commit a crime to help. In "Springtime in Siena," a hungry and amoral young academic leads a 1974 semester abroad. "Two sharp novellas that vividly complement each other!" —Kirkus Reviews
