Thanks Kirkus Reviews for the great critique of Bad Karma, the newest Jack McCoul Caper.
“An engrossing novel that should earn the series a bevy of new fans.” “The story is loaded with dishy one-liners for Jack, but even the third-person narrative gets in on the fun…” “A proficient detective story that keeps the plot turning.” — Kirkus Reviews

Jack’s back. Enjoy the ride.
Bad Karma is diabolically good.
Jack McCoul is back and proving crime doesn’t pay unless it’s his own.
San Francisco con artist Jack McCoul has left his life of crime behind until his past comes roaring back. A former partner’s scheme to snatch a priceless statue drags him into a murder investigation and a sexy suspect’s life hangs in the balance. When hired killers come gunning for him, Jack’s only choice is to do what he does best—even though it means breaking the law again.

Art and literature are proving to be powerful tools in creating public awareness of California’s new network of ocean parks. My essays accompany Jasmine Swope’s evocative black and white photographs in a stunning new coffee-table book Our Ocean’s Edge published by Nazraeli Press.
The work will be on display at the Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica April 18 – May 23.
“A Pale Chanting”
“The lie lay between them, there in the double bed beneath a red Maasai blanket, beneath the canvas ceiling, beneath the African moon dissolving into dawn. Outside, a lion prowled the tall grass roaring impatiently for his huntresses. The ground trembled from elephants steered by memories passed on by those who had passed by before. A go-away bird’s cry sounded like a petulant child. Robert listened to the Serengeti awaken, knowing that Sylvie was listening, too, wishing he could reach across and pull her to him if not for the divide grown wide by the truth behind the lie.” So begins “A Pale Chanting.” Read my newest short story at SNReview.
