You Might As Well Die.

This is the second book in J.J. Murphy’s Algonquin Round Table Series.  Already looking forward to the third book in the series.  Did the failed artist jump from the Brooklyn Bridge or didn’t he?  So Dorothy Parker is off on another adventure with seances, and more dealings with the bootlegger Mickey Finn.

I’ve been a brat.  I told J.J. Murphy on Goodreads he should write a baseball book.  He told me one is coming. Then I told him he should write one involving members of the Harlem Renaissance, which was in the same time period.  You like my nerve? 🙂  I tell him what to write LOL!

I’ve thought of writing something involving the Harlem Renaissance.  I am already writing the plot ideas for my latest detective story that will take place in Harlem.  (I graduated from City College of New York and never paid attention to the neighborhood).  I helped someone with research in the Schomburg Library at 135th Street and Lenox Avenue and I’ve been to Sylvia’s.

I can see it now, in town, staying with my parents and my father asking me where I’m going.  Harlem.  Then I get the look as though I have three heads, all of them empty.  Yes, I grew up seeing a lot of that look.

Well read the book and I may think of something else to tell J.J. Murphy to write throwing the Round Table into something New York in the 1920’s.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
