In 1926, musician Tom Hickey reads about a lynching the Los Angeles newspapers failed to report and realizes the Negro victim was an old friend. He goes to his neighbor, LAPD detective Leo Weiss who confirms that, officially, the lynching didn't occur. The murder happened in Echo Park, across the street from evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson's Angelus Temple. When Tom goes there looking for clues, he is greeted by an usher who continues to follow him after the service. Leo, a speakeasy owner, and a Klansman all warn him he's made formidable enemies-among them publisher and political heavyweight William Randolph Hearst. When Tom discovers the key to the murder, it lies-as is too often the case-close to home. Ken Kuhlken's novels have won or been short-listed for the Ernest Hemingway Award and the Shamus Best Novel Award. He lives and writes in La Mesa, California. www.kenkuhlken.net

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

Ragtime is making a comeback in 1951. In Sedalia, Missouri, plans are underway for a ceremony to honor Scott Joplin.

Even worse, two Sedalia Klansmen are hot after the journal and don't care if they have to kill someone to get it. In the middle of it all is Alan Chandler, a 17-year-old pianist in love with ragtime.
