Saturday, August 24, 3:00 p.m. - Howard Michael Gould

Gould will be discussing and signing BELOW THE LINE, the second book in his Charlie Waldo novels

​Eccentric private eye Charlie Waldo is back in another wildly fun and fast-paced thriller lampooning Southern California

​Former LAPD detective Charlie Waldo is pathologically committed to owning no more than one hundred possessions, but now Waldo and his P.I. ex-girlfriend Lorena have their hands full with a new client, a wild and privileged L.A. teenager named Stevie Rose who tells lies as easily as she breathes. With treachery and deception at every turn, and with Waldo’s eco-obsessed rules for living complicating his already complicated relationship with Lorena, Waldo fends off enemies old and new as he races to find Stevie and solve the murder. 

Gould's first novel, LAST LOOKS, is currently in production as a film with Mel Gibson's playing the main suspect for the murder of his wife.
