    California Girl PDF/EPUB Ì Mass Market Paperback california book, girl download, California Girl PDFOn the surface California Girl is a well written crime novel It will particularly appeal to those who have a familiarity with Orange County California and are interested in a story that captures the atmosphere of the OC of the 1950s and 60s with its orange groves hippie culture and drive in churches There are cameo appearances by California icons Timothy Leary Charles Manson and Richard Nixon Just the local interest and plot action are enough to make this a worthwhile read but the author has gone a step further and woven some thoughtful issues throughout the setting and plotTelling the truth can be painfully difficult and this becomes a noticeable theme throughout the novel This seemingly black and white concept becomes shades of gray when seen in the context of the story and the lives of the characters who find that they may hurt good people and reward the despicable if they tell the truth A minor yet no

    California Girl PDF/EPUB Ì Mass Market Paperback california book, girl download, California Girl PDFWhen I was a kid growing up in northern San Diego County in the Sixties and Seventies we used to make a yearly trek to Disneyland We'd also make other treks to points north especially Long Beach Up until around 1974 or so northern San Diego County was a pretty podunk place but Orange County was even podunkier Going up I 5 or I 405 you saw hardly any civilization until you hit Anaheim or Long Beach Even Anaheim would have been nothing

    California Girl PDF/EPUB Ì Mass Market Paperback california book, girl download, California Girl PDFI am glad to have followed the advice of a fellow avid crimethriller fan here on Goodreads to pick up a book by T Jefferson Parker There’s something about his storytelling that compels me I enjoyed California Girl because it immersed me in a time and a place where I know little about The sixties in Orange County CA If you want it pretty much boils down to “sex drugs and rockroll” It must’ve been a time like no other those sixties

    California Girl PDF/EPUB Ì Mass Market Paperback california book, girl download, California Girl PDFIt's not like I can call this a bad book because it's well written but for me that doesn't amount to much if it's so boring And this one is booooorrrrrriiiiinnnnnggggg 250 pages in Nick Becker moans that he's two weeks into his investigation and hasn't uncovered any clues Yes that's right 250 pages where nothing has happened This a sweeping family saga than thriller or crime novel It won an award for best crime novel in 2004 which makes me think 2004 must have been a lousy year for crime novels

    California Girl PDF/EPUB Ì Mass Market Paperback california book, girl download, California Girl PDFI was thinking this was a five star when it began and now I give it one AND place it on the really bad book shelf That because of my growing disappointment the I thought about it I thought I really had found someone in author T Jefferson Parker but he let me down His protagonists in all his novels are basically the same guy and in this novel he merges four brothers into one The brothers are a preacher newspaper reporter soldier and detective Their voice is the same Their personalities are the same They are almost worthy but all fall short Add to that mix Richard Nixon Timothy Leary and Charles Mansion Add to that
