Nick Shaw, private eye, is hired by a Hollywood theater producer to find a missing actress.
Cold Reading is a hardboiled detective novel featuring Nick Shaw, Private Eye.
Nick is a struggling actor in Los Angeles who pays his bills with detective work. After he flubs an audition, Nick is hired by a Hollywood theater producer to find a missing actress. Desperate for money, Nick takes the case—but soon wishes he hadn't, as he follows cold leads and hot ladies through danger and deceit to unravel the mystery and pull back the curtain. On stage and off, nothing is quite what it seems....
A rough draft of Cold Reading is complete, and currently in revisions. The novel will be self-published in December as an ebook, and in January as a paperback. Also in January a limited number of hardbacks will be published exclusively for Kickstarter backers.
You can pre-order your copy of Cold Reading now through Kickstarter. Your donation will help me to complete the revisions and edits in time for the book's anticipated release date: December 20, 2011.
