Florey's Books welcomes author Michael Castleman as he discusses his new mystery novel "Killer Weed"

***Saturday, Oct. 19th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

While run­ning for mayor of San Fran­cisco, a for­mer pot dealer and author of best-selling guides to grow­ing weed is assassi­nated. For­mer news­pa­per­man, Ed Rosen­berg is hired to find out what hap­pened to a tech billionaire’s birth mother who was a small-time mar­i­juana dealer shot to death in Golden Gate Park in an unsolved 1968 mur­der. His research about the Haight-Ashbury’s tie-dyed past illu­mi­nates that sto­ried era, and intro­duces him to a rogue’s gallery of aging hip­pies, who, he real­izes, may have been involved in the candidate’s mur­der. Then some­one starts shoot­ing at him…..Killer Weed is a fast-paced, inge­niously plot­ted novel with char­ac­ters so real you’ll want to turn on, tune in, and drop everything to reach the sur­pris­ing, deeply sat­is­fy­ing con­clu­sion.
