Book description…

Dog Man might be the last great Baby Boomer novel. It is the self-told story of Rudi Werner, an engaging Boomer gone bust who learns about change the hard way: He lives it. Battling his demons all the way, Rudi accepts the challenge of opening and operating Dog Man, a kitschy hot dog joint that “serves the best damn wieners on the Jersey Shore.” But Rudi’s fabulous food fling brings him into daily conflict with what he calls The Great American Catastrophe-the election of Donald J. Trump. Rudi gets plenty of help balancing personal and political change from his inspiring love interest, Maria; from his extended Dog Man family; from his quirky, learned “spiritual” advisors, Phillipe and Malachi; and from his loving and loyal Labrador Retriever, Al. The novel provides poignant and humorous insights into modern life, relationships, politics and food, but Dog Man is fundamentally an uplifting tale of personal transcendence for Boomers of all ages.

Book description…

Manhattan Private Investigator Barney Moon can hack, charm or con his way into or out of damned-near anything. Barney is driven — to solve cases, nail bad guys, and to anyplace not reachable via the NY Subway. Barney never learned to drive. And, like most born/bred New Yorkers, he regards pretty much anywhere else as “Out-of-Town.” But there is one place for which he has a particular, lifelong aversion: Los Angeles, California, which Barney regards as an Alien Planet. And – guess where he finds himself stranded? In Cross Purposes, a case takes the reluctant Barney and his driver, Al Drobowsky to Los Angeles to obtain a single fingerprint. But things quickly get complicated. That night, of what by then seems sure to be only two in Tinseltown, Al learns he must immediately return to Brooklyn. Next morning, Barney notices his rented car being hot-wired by a young woman. Pragmatically, in exchange for not having Melodie Seaver arrested, he enlists the gorgeous 18 year-old Southern California delinquent to drive him around for – at most – one day. Except that things quickly escalate for this comically ill-matched pair, into murders, conspiracies, and mortal danger. Very fortuitously, the Good News for Barney: Melodie’s driving skills are awesome. Together, our off-the-wall team narrowly survives, and solves the complex, scary mess they’ve stumbled into. “Tom Sawyer’s inaugural Barney Moon P.I. novel, Cross Purposes, is the best thing to spread shoe leather on the wise-cracking streets of La-La Land since Bogey and Bacall. And Cross Purposes has Sawyer’s larger-than-life characters, refreshing humor, Hitchcockian plot twists, and his great, so-authentic dialogue.” -Andrew McAleer, Author of 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists & Fatal Deeds.
