Manufacturer Description

What an awful thing it is to happen upon the body—your friend—ID’d only by a scrap of clothing. The law alleges he jumped off the bridge—600 feet? Fell? Thrown? Racing home to the victim’s Taos adobe, you find him there and on TV being interviewed: He must sell his art, over a hundred paintings. Yet he’s famous, so why the backlog? And on the screen is your own portrait right there in the home of the NY TV host. What is going on? You need a private investigator. No need for the sheriff, he hates Indians. And sheriff is the brother of the artist’s agent.

Does the PI see a connection here? You bet, strong enough to launch a sequence of psyche stratagems to break the brothers, because the TV pitchman is really the agent, impersonating his own client. You happen to know music—you have a little band—and so does the PI, so here it comes: The brothers in the nightclub being entertained by the ballad reenact to what happened at the bridge. They scramble to the crime scene to cover up something overlooked when they murdered. The PI’s hi-tech gadgetry at the scene cuffs them.

Product Information

Meet DB Dakota

The author’s first love was the lady in Sir Walter Scott’s opus; a chapbook about her merited an A+ in English. Music manuscripts submitted to a Nashville publisher were passed over, but motivated him to compose the class song for graduation. Twenty years of railroading, military service and broadcasting followed. He dashed off shoestring commercials for budget television clients, scripted industrials, and TV shows about the gold rush and railroading, then got out Land of Legend, a history book. “His account of narrow gauge,” the publisher stated, “is one of the warmest, most human narratives ever written.” Readers Digest rejected his true story about the passenger train wreck he almost caused, as signal operator, by pushing the wrong button. The account is a sidetracked cliffhanger. Liability for lives, he balked at the burden, and quit railroading. His license to operate radio stations turned into television directing. Sitting there in the dark he’d watch a zillion things at once and talk fast—no wrong buttons. Fleeing video for the corporate client universe, he tagged credits to film documentaries about atomic bomb production and security (as a Q-clearance employee); ski patrol safety; mental illness rehab; the new Air Force Academy; and shoots for national clients. Career change: Ad agency copywriter, graphic artist; award winning spots, jingles, sightseeing history guidebook Denver in a Day, tech monographs; next, an art gallery, a challenging enterprise for a restless creative to unveil the worlds of detectives, miners and prehistoric.
