It's late summer, 1972, up in California's redwood forests. They seem a ''safe and wondrous place,'' but some of Evergreen's population is growing pot up in the trees and others are bent on stealing it. Then there's the coming folk festival, a jamboree bringing in musicians, fans, war protestors - a ferment of flower power (the local hippies), raw power (the local biker gangs, notably the Cossacks), and the power of the law (local and federal). Skirting the edges are shades of the Manson Family and the Mexican Mafia. Clifford Hickey, scheduled to perform a guitar gig at the festival before trucking off to law school, arrives at his brother Alvaro's peaceful woodland campsite. And within moments Alvaro, combat trained, is faced with six armed men in badges crashing the camp, and runs. Clifford, surprised, is arrested and brutally cuffed, so brutally he fears for his hands. He then learns that a young man, one of the sheriffs' nephews, has just been murdered. Alvaro is the posse's quarry. So here's Clifford, on the brink of adult life, pitched into not just a murder but what develops into a duel between the Hickeys - for his father and mother soon drive up - and the law, between the Hickeys and the Cossacks - who seemingly have their own agenda for Alvaro and, between the Hickeys and the locals, and finally between the Hickeys and their own past. Ken Kuhlken won St. Martin's Best First Private Eye Novel contest for the first Hickey family case, The Loud Adios.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 13.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Praise for First, Do No Harm... "Karp's story, steeped in descriptions of 1940's smalltown life, builds to a shattering climax that will haunt readers as much as the book's characters." -Publishers Weekly Martin Firestone can't figure why his father, eccentric painter Leo Firestone, is throwing a fit. All Martin did was tell his dad he'd been accepted to medical school. Then Leo tells Martin a story about his own father, Dr. Samuel Firestone, an extraordinarily gifted doctor and a living legend in the small city of Hobart, NJ. And a man with a serious character flaw. But there are loose threads in Leo's story. Martin picks them up, and, sixty years after the fact, goes snooping.... And like his father, he comes away with a lot more junk than he bargained for. Larry Karp is the author of the Music Box Mystery and the Ragtime Mystery series. Karp has also written nonfiction, practiced perinatal medicine, and restored and collected antique music boxes. He and his wife live in Seattle. www.larrykarp.com

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 28.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Brun Campbell, a 15-year-old piano-playing fool, hears Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" played one 1898 afternoon in Oklahoma City. It's destiny calling. Asking for ragtime lessons, he's told, "No, Ragtime is colored music." So Brun runs away from the family farm to Sedalia, Missouri, to persuade Joplin to take him on as a pupil. What Brun doesn't expect is to trip over the body of a young woman. He thoughtlessly picks up a couple of items before he rushes away from the murder scene. When Edward Fitzgerald, a man who befriended Brun his first night in town, is arrested for the woman's murder, Brun is certain he's innocent. But if the boy shows anyone the things he pocketed at the scene - things he now knows belonged to Scott Joplin - he'll point the finger at the composer ... and himself. Brun decides to get Fitzgerald, Joplin, and himself off the hook by finding the real killer, but for that he eventually needs some help from Dr. Overstreet, the alcoholic town mayor; and John Stark, a man pushing sixty, who's been employing Brun at his music store. Sedalia is rife with suspects, some of them opportunists bent on stealing Joplin's music. And then there are the girls and women - mysteries to Brun - like a teenager seized with religious fever, a couple of mischievous prostitutes, and an attractive, ambitious young woman with a hint of scarlet in her past, who further complicate his pursuit of the killer.
