First Time Ever In Ebook Format! WHILE I DISAPPEAR By Edward Wright



About While I Disappear:

One rain-soaked evening, John Ray Horn runs into an old flame.

Rose Galen played the female lead in his second movie. Young, beautiful and improbably talented for her B-movie surroundings, she had a shining quality to her. Now, years later, Rose is a shattered creature, drink-sodden and heavy with sadness. Something happened to her years ago, before Horn first knew her, something so terrible that it would eventually leave her broken. Hoping to uncover her long-held secret, Horn goes to visit Rose at her shabby rooming house and finds her strangled to death.

Aware of a debt to her that he never fully acknowledged, he sets out to find her killer, aided by Joseph Mad Crow, Horn’s onetime Indian co-star who is now his employer. To unmask Rose’s killer, Horn must first determine what happened to her so long ago.

His search takes him back into the Hollywood of the 1920s-the era of the silent film-and a wild party attended by both movie celebrities and racketeers. He soon encounters figures from Rose’s past–the lawyer with a bootlegging background and a lethal bodyguard; the lusty, larger-than-life actress with a capacity for settling scores and the ex-Shakespearean actor with a faded career and a crumbling mansion. Before long, Horn discovers a terrible act that left a young woman dead and several people guarding a secret that would only begin to unravel after Rose Galen took her last tortured breath.

While I Disappear is the winner of the 2004 Shamus Award and the 2004 Southern California Booksellers Association Award. It is the sequel to Clea’s Moon, also published electronically by Untreed Reads.

About Author Edward Wright:

Edward Wright grew up in Arkansas and went to school in Tennessee and Illinois. He has been an officer in the U.S. Navy and an editor at the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times. His noir-flavored mysteries featuring John Ray Horn, set in Los Angeles during the 1940s, have won the Shamus Award in the U.S. and the Debut Dagger and Ellis Peters Historical Crime Award in the U.K. His first non-series book, Damnation Falls, a contemporary mystery-thriller set in small-town Tennessee, won the Barry Award. He and his wife, Cathy, live in the Los Angeles area.

WARNING

The Untreed site claims you can use either Paypal or a credit card, but PayPal seems to be hardcoded into the checkout process.

Nevermind!

Apparently you CAN use a credit card, but the designer seems to think it was a brilliant idea to make it LOOK like you could only use PayPal for your purchase for 3 screens without any explanation. I wonder how many sales Untreed has lost because of this?

UNTREED seems to want to turn the purchasing process into a puzzle.

I've bought two books and NOWHERE is there any HINT of how to download the damn books!

NOPE! I read that as well, but at no time were any instructions displayed nor was there anything on the reciept page about a download or on the reciept that was emailed to me. Though the recipts just listed "EPUB" as a title of the books. I have never seen that in any other ebook purchase. The other vendors ALWAYS list the names of the books you buy.

Oddly, when I went to my account, my order history was empty, yet I got confirmation that they were going to charge my account!

I've sent an email to them, I doubt that there was any Malfeasance involved, just poor infrastructure.

WOW! Great follow-up by Jay Hartman

I got a personal email from Jay (The publishing house editor) asking which books I bought so he can email them to me.

I sent my email around 9:30 PM US Eastern Time and he sent his email around 12:30 AM. Far better service than I expected (and have received from other small publishers). This vendor might be a 'keeper'. I'll let you know when the books arrive.

I've been cranky lately from dealing with some eBook vendors, and I assumed I was in for another boatload of BS. I owe Mr. Hartman an apology!

Although I'm holding that apology hostage. When I get the books, he gets the apology! (that's a joke for the humor impaired)
