New Blake Friedmann client Tim Baker has been highly commended for the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger for THE LONG OBLIVION, an extract from his novel FEVER CITY. Alongside the winner, he was selected as one of only two commended entries from hundreds of entries.
FEVER CITY is an upmarket speculative crime fiction novel which details how Hastings - a hit man with no heart but a lot of conscience - and Alston - a PI with plenty of heart, but whose conscience is running on empty – collide during a sensational kidnapping case in 1960s LA. Uncovering a sinister world of Hollywood blackmail, Big Oil paymasters, and a sadistic FBI agent, by the time their wild-eyed, wise-guy journey is over, both men will be forced to confront the roles they have inadvertently played in the JFK assassination.
FEVER CITY will be out on submission in the UK this summer, for more information contact Tom Witcomb.
