You might have heard something on the grapevine about a book called MURDER IN PALM BEACH: The Homicide That Never Died making the rounds in Palm Beach County and beyond. At least I’m doing my utmost to see that you become aware of it, for good reason, or reasons. First, it has
If all that is not enough to persuade you to read it, maybe this is: On Friday (Sept. 9), it will be available for FREE. All day and night. There’s only one catch: You have to have a Kindle or Kindle-compatible device. What’s compatible? Beats me; this technology stuff drives me nuts.

Not really – except I had to spend $500 on widening my doorway so my head would fit through. I’m exaggerating: The cost was only $400.

Yes, MURDER IN PALM BEACH certainly is available in paperback. And if your friend or relative reads it on his/her hand-held modern device, and recommends it, you might want to pick up a print copy. Buy it through my website, www.bobbrinkwriter.com (signed copy), Amazon.com, or BarnesandNoble.com. It’s also on the shelves of Classic Bookstore in Palm Beach. Twelve Barnes & Noble stores carried the First Edition.
If you’re financially strapped, you can borrow it from any of the libraries in the Palm Beach County system, and a number of independent city libraries.
