Dear Reader,

I'm very happy to announce that I have coauthored a book with established Portland crime writer, Mr. JD Chandler, which has been published and will be available for purchase February first of 2016.

This is JD's fourth book in less than five years, entitled.

Murder and Scandal in Prohibition Portland: Sex, Vice and Misdeeds in Mayor Baker’s Reign, is a very different kind of story, with sexy scandals involving a well known married woman and local Police Lieutenant. For a very entertaining read, look for Murder and Scandal in Prohibition Portland: Sex, Vice and Misdeeds in Mayor Baker’s Reign.

JD has written three previous books, Murder and Mayhem in Portland Oregon,  in March of 2013, Hidden History of Portland Oregon, in November of 2013, and Portland on the Take; Midcentury Crime Bosses, Civic Corruption and Forgotten Murders, coauthored with crime writer JB Fisher, published in November 2014.

Also available is a recent August 21, 2015, taped talk show, "Conversations with Dr. Don" on Youtube, with host, Baram Don and writer JD Chandler, regarding the book we are coauthoring together, Murder and Scandal in Prohibition Portland; Sex, Crime and Misdeeds in Mayor Bakers Reign.  Its a great interview. Enjoy.
