Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Michael Castleman to the store to discuss and sign his new book, Killer Weed: An Ed Rosenberg Mystery, on Wednesday, September 18th at 7pm.
Killer Weed, the fourth installment in the Ed Rosenberg mysteries, yet again blends thriller with local history -- this time, the potsmoke-filled sixties in Haight-Ashbury. Ed Rosenberg, an out-of-work journalist is tasked with a much-needed assignment to find out what happened to a tech billionaire's murdered mother. Meanwhile his wife is caught up in the aftermath of the assassination of a mayoral candidate who was a staunch supporter of cannabis policy reform. Are these two crimes, despite the intervening forty years, connected? Unraveling the mysteries, he soon finds himself embroiled in the underground world of dope-dealing. Then someone starts shooting at him.
Michael Castleman is a prolific writer with more than thirteen books in health, and sexuality including, Great Sex, The New Healing Herbs, and When Someone Dies. He also writes the popular Ed Rosenberg series of San Francisco-based mysteries, which starts with The Lost Gold of San Francisco.
