Oprah Noodlemantra's Book Club begins tidbits for Daniel Depp's LOSER'S TOWN today

Oprah Noodlemantra’s Book Club is preparing to discuss Daniel Depp’s debut novel Loser’s Town–background tidbits begin today on the ONBC forum! Loser’s Town follows in the footsteps of classic Hollywood detective novels, with a world-weary, skeptical private investigator trailing clues through Tinseltown. Depp’s hero is David Spandau, a stuntman-turned-detective who “is irreverent with the suits and respectful toward the industry’s working stiffs,” according to Kirkus Reviews. “Spandau is grounded in reality and possessed of a cool Robert Mitchum might envy, which comes in handy when he takes the case of a somewhat disconnected actor name Bobby Dye, fast on the road to superstardom, who has found himself involved in a blackmail plot underneath which lies something far more sinister.” Kirkus adds, “Bikers, hookers, drug dealers, and worst of all, agents and producers figure in at points in the nicely tangled plot . . . .” How can you resist?

ONBC moderators Liz and DeppintheHeartofTexas invite you to stop by the ONBC forum and get to know the fascinating world portrayed in Loser’s Town. –Part-Time Poet
