Death in Nostalgia City

By Mark S. Bacon

‘Desert Kill Switch’ is new Nostalgia City mystery

2

The life and times of stressed-out, former detective—now cabbie—Lyle Deming, and former college basketball star Kate Sorensen, will continue in 2017 with the publication of the second Nostalgia City mystery, Desert Kill Switch

Many thanks to Lauri Wellington, my editor at Black Opal Books; I’m happy to announce that Desert Kill Switch will be followed by the third mystery in the series.  (I’m keeping that title under my fedora for the time being.)

In Desert Kill Switch, Lyle finds a bullet-riddled body in the Arizona desert near Nostalgia City.  But when he returns to the scene with sheriff’s deputies, there’s no trace of the dead young man or the classic 1970s Firebird Trans Am that the victim had apparently been driving.  Was Lyle seeing things?

Desert-Kill-SwitchAt the same time, Kate, Nostalgia City’s PR VP,  is in Reno, Nev., to promote the park at a ten-day classic car festival.  Soon she’s in the middle of a local controversy involving community leaders, a sleazy Las Vegas car dealer and the state legislature.  There’s a taste of violence in the desert, a cast of quirky characters and enough plot twists to satisfy Chubby Checker. The book will be available in print and all popular ebook formats.

I’ll be posting more details as we get closer to the book’s release date.  And no, this is not what the cover will look like, but the font style is the same.

    Fantastic news Mr. Bacon! Oh, and by the way, thanks for the update on the cover shown not being the actual cover – you saved me the trouble of giving you sh*t about choosing an ugly cover!
