Mysteries of the Mad Men Era

Mystery Month 2015Those who aren’t ready to move on after saying goodbye to their friends at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce may want to escape into other richly detailed tales of life in the swinging sixties and the confounding, wide-lapelled seventies.

    I can’t tell you how much I loved the Travis McGee series by MacDonald! In fact so much I am using colors in all my titles when ever my own writing gets published!
