Description

Jack Hopkins, veteran of the first Gulf War, doesn't like what he does for a living, but luckily he has two new job offers-Darlene Hunt wants to pay him ten million dollars to kill her husband, and her husband wants to hire him to kill Darlene Hunt. Before he can figure out who to work for, though, the dead bodies have already started piling up. The second novel from Millard Kaufman - the critically Oscar-nominated screenwriter, and World War II Marine - Misadventure is a serpentine murder mystery set against a backdrop of LA real-estate schemes, ruby-wearing femmes fatale, and more love triangles than any one man should attempt to get into.

Author Biography

Born in 1917, Millard Kaufman plunged into World War II on Guadalcanal as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps, then made D-Day landings on Guam and Okinawa. He co-created the beloved Mr. Magoo and was twice nominated for screenwriting Oscars--in 1954 for Take the High Ground! and in 1956 for the legendary Bad Day at Black Rock. His first novel, Bowl of Cherries, was published by McSweeney's in 2007.
