The Stone Carrier
The Stone Carrier is a brilliant and suspenseful novel which takes place in New York City during the wild '70s.
Terry Brennan is a gonzo journalist for all the major magazines. He does a feature piece on super-novelist Thaddeus Bryant and the two become best friends. Thad has all the glittering prizes which Terry wants, including the next big step up the ladder of success, a major novel and a movie deal. He and his old friend Joey Gardello, the up and coming movie director, drink and dine at Elaine's, the ultimate superstar hangout, but neither of them have yet made it. And as the novel opens it becomes obvious that Joey never will. Because he's murdered in Central Park. Worse, for Terry, he becomes the prime suspect.
A thrilling and sometimes hilarious chase ensues as Terry tries to find out who the murderer is before the cops or Nicky Baines, the most terrifying drug dealer in Harlem catches up with him. A wild, witty thriller you won't put down until its great, surprise ending.
