Dan Fante, the author and son of famed L.A. novelist John Fante, will read from his new mystery book, Point Doom, about an ex-PI out to avenge a friend's murder.

From the Skylight website:

Failed private investigator JD Fiorella was a pro at finding trouble. Mixing it up with the wrong people in New York, he escaped to L.A.--only to hit rock-bottom after too many nightmares and too much booze. Now forty-six and sober, JD is working hard to get it together. Living in Malibu at his mother's house in Point Dume, he's got a new job selling used cars with his friend Woody and a new girlfriend. But just as things are looking up, JD discovers a gruesome murder. Now the ex-private detective has to make a choice.
Copies of Point Doom are available at Skylight.
