Scott Phillips Staff Pick

When: Thu., March 5, 7 p.m. 2020
Price: free admission
Scott Phillips has written a slew of tough-guy crime novels that feature desperate characters involved in some greasy business. Douglas Rigby is his latest anti-hero, a financially and morally bankrupt attorney who just lost almost a quarter-million dollars on a coke deal gone belly-up. Rigby's next swing for the fences is art forgery, and all he has to do is keep his hand-picked forger, his girlfriend, the painting owner's nurse and a couple of other people from screwing it all up. That Left Turn at Albuquerque is laced with black humor, violence and middlemen, all crowded together under the dying sun of Southern California. Phillips reads from and signs copies of his book as part of the old Noir at the Bar series. Festivities start at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5, at Meshuggah Café (6269 Delmar Boulevard, University City; Admission is free, and copies of Phillips' book will be available to purchase.
