NBM in May: Rick Geary’s LOUISE BROOKS, DETECTIVE

Writing about May in the dead of winter is wishful thinking, but we are most excited about our new Rick Geary book! Taking pause from his long running Treasury of Victorian Murder series, Geary goes in a slightly different direction with LOUISE BROOKS, DETECTIVE.

Brooks was a famous actress in the silent film era. Her bobbed haircut started a craze as audiences emulated her looks. But she faded into obscurity in the 30s. She briefly returned to her hometown of Wichita, Kansas.  Louise recalls, “But that turned out to be another kind of hell. The citizens of Wichita either resented me having been a success or despised me for being a failure. And I wasn’t exactly enchanted with them. I must confess to a lifelong curse: My own failure as a social creature.”

This is where Rick Geary’s story begins…

LOUISE BROOKS

 

LOUISE BROOKS, Detective
Rick Geary
Stepping away for a bit from his growing and impressive body of work in the Treasury of Murder true crime series, Geary creates a fictional story around a favorite actress: Louise Brooks. Spun around her actual brief meteoric career as a smoldering film actress who popularized bangs, Geary fantasizes about her coming back to her home town of Wichita where she becomes intrigued by a murder involving a friend, a famous reclusive writer and a shady beau. Not before she gets herself in great danger will she emerge with the solution the police fail to grasp!
6×9, 80pp., B&W, hardcover, $15.99
