Do-Re-Mi by Ken Kuhlken
Book DescriptionIn late summer, 1972, California's redwood forests seem a "safe and wondrous place." But some of Evergreen's population is growing pot up in the trees and others are bent on stealing it. Then there's the coming folk festival, a jamboree bringing in musicians, fans, and war protestors. It results in a ferment of flower power (the local hippies), raw power (the local biker gangs, notably the Cossacks), and law enforcement power (local and federal). Skirting the edges are shades of the Manson Family and the Mexican Mafia. Enter Clifford Hickey, scheduled to perform a guitar gig before trucking off to law school. Within moments of his arrival at his brother Alvaro's peaceful woodland campsite, six armed men with badges crash the camp, and Alvaro runs. Clifford, surprised, is arrested and so brutally cuffed he fears for his hands. He then learns that one of the sheriff's nephews has just been murdered, and Alvaro is the posse's quarry. Clifford, on the brink of adult life, is pitched into a murder investigation...Praise for The Do-Re-Mi..."Set in 1972...in a town filled with vengeful bikers, suspicious locals, crooked cops, rogue federal agents and pot-growing hippies. Kuhlken brings the social and cultural scene of the period vividly to life." -Publishers Weekly The Do-Re-Mi is Ken Kuhlken's fifth published book, fourth in his chronicle of the Hickey family. The third in the series, The Loud Adios, was named Best First P.I. Novel in 1990 by the Private Eye Writers of America. Kuhlken divides his time between California, where his books are set, and Arizona. www.kenkuhlken.net
