Florey's Book Co. welcomes local Pacifica author Arnold D. Gardner as he discusses his new novel "The Leadfeather Syndrome"

***Saturday, May 21st, 2-4pm***

About the book:

Michael Greer’s career as a journeyman Private Investigator takes on a promising cushy outlook when his assignment takes him to Eastern Long Island’s North Fork, the resort and sporting playground where he’s slated to delve into the case of a local auto dealer who’s been officially reported missing along with an imposing chunk of pledged bonding company funds. Almost at once, Greer’s undertaking takes on an awesome dimension when the missing dealer’s terrified girlfriend turns out to be an incomparable beauty who’s been directed to seek his help in uncovering possible lethal circumstances related to her boyfriend’s disappearance. P.I. Greer finds himself drawn into a nightmare of intrigue and assassination in uncovering the perpetrators in current and past murder scenes and manages his own survival by out-matching his adversaries in smarts and nerve. Greer.s romantic involvement with two beautiful women closely aligned to the story’s events almost ends in his undoing as did a like affair in the immediate post-war days of his youth. But, in love, as in the ordeals of war, he learns to live with the fateful outcome of his fortunes and his intimacy with the wisdom in Shakespeare helps him find words for it.

About the author:

The Leadfeather Syndrome is the first published work by WWII combat veteran Arnold D. Gardner, an American educator and business executive who fought throughout the Italian Campaign and afterward lived and worked in Italy. He and his Italian warbride, Diana, resided for many years among the splendid eastern towns and villages of Long Island's North Fork. Mr. Gardner's native roots go back to the scenic country areas along the northern borders of New York State.


We hope to see you!
