Coming in September from Down & Out Books: BROKEN WINDOWS by Paul D. Marks
About BROKEN WINDOWS …
While the storm rages over California's notorious anti-illegal alien Proposition 187, a young woman climbs to the top of the famous Hollywood sign—and jumps to her death. An undocumented day laborer is murdered. And a disbarred and desperate lawyer in Venice Beach places an ad in a local paper that says: "Will Do Anything For Money."
Private investigator Duke Rogers takes on the case of Carlos, the murdered day-laborer, as a favor to his sister Marisol, the housekeeper down the street from Duke's house.
Duke must figure out what ties together Carlos' murder, the ex-lawyer's desperate ad and the woman jumping from the sign. He and his very unPC sidekick Jack are on the case. Their mission catapults them through a labyrinth of murder, intrigue and corruption of church and state that hovers around the immigration debate in this searing sequel to the explosive Shamus Award-winning novel White Heat.
