Host Terri Lynn Coop is pleased to serve up award-winning mystery author Paul D. Marks on The Blue Plate Special.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY says: WHITE HEAT is a "...taut crime yarn set in 1992 against the turmoil of the Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of the police officers charged with assaulting motorist Rodney King.... the author ably evokes the chaos that erupted after the Rodney King verdict."
"Written in a staccato, noir style as intense as the 1992 L.A. riots, WHITE HEAT is a stunning debut novel by L.A. native Paul Marks. It grabs you with the intensity of the riots and keeps the anxiety and tension pushing full-throttle right up to the bittersweet ending. Heat is a hard-hitting, noir detective thriller, that also deals with tough issues like racism, the diversity of racism, and the human condition. " - Andrew McAleer, best-selling author of The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists and Fatal Deeds
Paul also co-edited the Anthony-nominated anthology Coast to Coast Crime from Down & Out Books.
A Los Angeles native, Paul is one of the few people to have pulled a gun on the LAPD and lived to tell about it - see the story on his website: www.PaulDMarks.com
