Los Angeles, CA, March 16, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Hollywood screenwriter Dennis Palumbo (My Favorite Year) threw in the pen to become a psychotherapist to the very same writers, directors and producers he had worked with in the industry. Now, he has picked that pen up again — this time writing dark, yet humorous, short mysteries. In From Crime to Crime – Mind-boggling Tales of Mystery and Murder (Tallfellow Press, Hardcover, $24.95, April), Palumbo offers readers a chance to solve each mystery by giving them all the clues necessary.
From Crime to Crime introduces The Smart Guys Marching Society, a group of (real-life) “desperate husbands” who meet on Sundays to discuss politics, compare lives and eat deli. What they invariably wind up doing is solving crimes.
The book also features several stand-alone stories with such amateur sleuths as a brilliant female psychologist whose session with a patient threatens to turn deadly and a penniless patent clerk named Albert Einstein, who gets caught up in the search for a turn-of-the-century serial killer.
About the author:
Formerly a Hollywood screenwriter (My Favorite Year; Welcome Back, Kotter, etc.), Dennis Palumbo is now a psychotherapist in private practice, as well as an author.
