At 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17, for example, joining kindred souls for a FREE author appearance.

Ahoy, all ye book lovers! Your friendly local scribe is about to expound publicly, once again, on his book MURDER IN PALM BEACH: The Homicide That Never Died – and YOU are cordially invited to attend this event. I’m going to be there for sure – because I am said scribe. Hi! Bob Brink here.

The setting is the charming North Palm Beach Public Library, tucked in a green nook on the town’s southeast corner. I can’t wait to see you, and will do my best to pique your interest – nay, to render you spellbound.

That shouldn’t be too difficult. The novel is based on a sensational event that happened in plush Palm Beach in January 1976, and made news for 15 years afterward. It even drew Geraldo Rivera here in 1982 to investigate and deliver a report on the ABC program 20/20.

Rife with political intrigue and suspense, the novel also depicts a moving love story, and takes readers down a path toward the redemption of a man.


So if you want some FREE entertainment, head on down to the library at 303 Anchorage Drive in North Palm Beach. That’s off U.S. Highway One, west side, a little north of Northlake Boulevard. The phone number is 561-841-3383. Again: 2 p.m. Thursday.

See y’all then.
