Join us online for a conversation with William F. Crandell, award-winning author of Let’s Say Jack Kennedy Killed the Girl, Book 1 in The Jack Griffin Detective Series.
In this hard-boiled adventure we find a young senator Kennedy’s personal and political future at risk when he’s set up to take the fall for a ghastly murder. Working against time, bureaucratic red tape, his own personal demons, and individuals who want him out of the way, Detective Jack Griffin must identify the real killer, assuming he survives long enough.
William F. Crandell returned home from the Vietnam War with a taste for adventure, a skeptic’s eye, and a hundred thousand stories. Awarded a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award for his private detective novel, Let’s Say Jack Kennedy Killed the Girl, Crandell has published short stories, book reviews, scholarly articles, journalism, state and federal reports, political analyses, and congressional testimony that he presented in Washington hearings. An Ohio native, Crandell received all his degrees at Ohio State University, completing his doctorate in American History with a study of the interaction of McCarthyism and Republican politics. Bill is a former DC speech writer for Veteran’s Affairs. Click below to register for the Zoom link:
We have a new book that is free for download today on Amazon. If you like hardboiled detective series, you won’t get too much better than Bill’s version. Bill, as an FYI, is a Vietnam vet, and he first wrote this when he was on a Maryland state arts grant.
There are 3 more in the series too, so if you like this, more are coming. This one is free until midnight tonight, 11/29/2021.
You can download it to any device: laptop, tablet, smartphone, and read it whenever, or share it (you can let another person read it, also for free). You do not have to read it today, but you can only “obtain” it today.(Amazon limits how much we can give away).
