Please join Parnassus Books in welcoming critically acclaimed mystery writer Daniel Friedman for a discussion and signing of his newest book, Don't Ever Look Back, the follow-up to his runaway hit debut, Don't Ever Get Old.Four months after the events of Don't Ever Get Old, eighty-eight-year-old Buck Schatz is reluctantly coming to terms with the fact that he can only move around with the aid of a walker, and his dementia seems to be getting worse. So when one of Buck's long-time foes, a bank-robber named Elijah, comes to Buck looking for protection from mysterious pursuers, Buck wavers. In the end, his desire to cement his legacy by closing out a series of long-unsolved robberies overwhelms his usual antipathy toward doing favors for people he dislikes. Buck agrees to broker Elijah's surrender to the authorities, if Elijah will promise to confess to his long-ago crimes. But nothing involving Elijah, or Buck, is ever simple, and Elijah's plans for Buck are more sinister than they first appeared. Written in Buck's signature voice and featuring a mystery that will knock your socks off, Don't Ever Look Back takes a decades-old feud between two dangerous--and now elderly--men and brings it to a final, explosive conclusion. Daniel Friedman is a graduate of the University of Maryland and the NYU School of Law. His debut novel, Don't Ever Get Old, was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Novel. He lives in New York City.
