Ever since he began reading stories, he wanted to put his own on the page. He lives a very quiet and ordinary life in Minnesota with his wife and dog.
Keel was always a controversial figure, often doing the wrong thing for the right reason. Keel and his wife had become environmental activists. By trying to find out who killed Keel, a man of many identities emerges. He was a classic idealist, who loved his family, life, and the environment.
Amy decides to become actively involved in the investigation, a fact Jake is non too pleased with. Why cant she just stay out of his way and let him do his job? Although they are at odds at every turn, Jake develops a begrudging admiration for Amys staunch dedication to finding her husbands murderer. With a suspect list of crooked politicians, marina bums, and other unsavory characters, finding the killer isnt going to be easy.
A dead actress, a dead gambler and that’s for starters.
With murder following his every step, determined under-achiever Steele Hill is tangled in layers of intrigue and deviousness.
Pulled from his 1980s cozy world of the racetrack, the rock-music pub and his favorite band in the world, the Go-Betweens, everybody the wise-cracking Hill meets is in danger.
One ally is a reclusive teenage maths whiz, channeling Hendrix, and tapping into prohibited military software and magic mushrooms.
Leaping off the shoulders of Joseph Heller's Catch-22, Iraqi Icicle is a wild and hilarious ride through the murky worlds of gambling, drugs, politics and rock’n’roll.
“Readers will appreciate the author's ability to render colorful characters and understated witty prose.”

In the summer of 1969, in Los Angeles, a series of brutal, seemingly random murders captured headlines across America. A famous actress (and her unborn child), an heiress to a coffee fortune, a supermarket owner and his wife were among the seven victims. A thin trail of circumstances eventually tied the Tate-LeBianca murders to Charles Manson, a would-be pop singer of small talent living in the desert with his "family" of devoted young women and men. What was his hold over them? And what was the motivation behind such savagery? In the public imagination, over time, the case assumed the proportions of myth. The murders marked the end of the sixties and became an immediate symbol of the dark underside of that era.
Vincent Bugliosi was the prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial, and this book is his enthralling account of how he built his case from what a defense attorney dismissed as only "two fingerprints and Vince Bugliosi." The meticulous detective work with which the story begins, the prosecutor's view of a complex murder trial, the reconstruction of the philosophy Manson inculcated in his fervent followers…these elements make for a true crime classic. Helter Skelter is not merely a spellbinding murder case and courtroom drama but also, in the words of The New Republic, a "social document of rare importance."Some images in this ebook are not displayed due to permissions issues.
