“All people want things,” said Dean, having stopped in from work to supervise Gordon’s move-in. “Ask anyone on the street if they want something, they’ll say, ‘Sure.’ But then ask them what they want exactly. If they say happiness, that’s too general. They didn’t answer your question. Everyone wants happiness. But how are you going to achieve it? You need a game plan. You need goals. You need to figure out what they are and write them down. That’s what I do. And that’s what works.”
- from Hat Trick, by Brad Keene

Hat Trick, by Brad Keene, a novel about one man's journey to discover who he is after a lifetime of imitation. The novel begins inauspiciously, the very first sentences grounding us in a particular and unremarkable Californian scene: "South of Paloma. Beach side. Next to the buckets of bath salt." It doesn't take long before the fragility and complexity of Gordon Lake, Hat Trick's conflicted protagonist, rises to the surface. You will enjoy his journey, not least for it's surprising moments of tension and rebellious adventure, but also because there's something about Gordon Lake that reminds us of ourselves. We're excited to share this new release with you, and look forward to hearing from our readers on Gordon and his many lives. In the meantime, happy reading.

In case you were looking for a reason to head down south, Dr. Bernstein will be signing copies of his novel Flashblind at Warwick's in La Jolla this weekend, on August 5th. You can read more about the event, the book, and Dr. Bernstein himself in the press release below - or just show up and find out for yourself.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Dr. Paul Bernstein will be introducing his newest, controversial release, “Flashblind,” in La Jolla, discussing the grim truth behind the work of fiction, as revealed in his extensive research via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
“Flashblind,” a medical thriller, brings to light the actual history of government sponsored radiation experiments on American citizens throughout the atomic age. Funded by the US Department of Energy--the same agency responsible for testing nuclear bombs--carefully guarded genetic research experiments were done in secret for decades.
Award-winning author and medical director for Kaiser Permenente in San Diego, Dr. Paul Bernstein will discuss this new and highly acclaimed novel, "Flashblind," at a book signing on Sunday, August 5, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Warwick's at 7812 Girard Avenue, La Jolla.
“Flashblind” builds upon information Dr. Bernstein uncovered by FOIA requests to various government entities while performing educational research for the medical community. The facts he uncovered quickly revealed themselves to be dramatic and shocking enough for fiction, and the novel “Flashblind” was born. While an entertaining read in its own right, the book also serves to educate readers about the real history of radiation experiments and the conspiracy behind their decades-long cover-up.
The novel begins as the race for the genetic holy grail, the cure for cancer, is on. World-renowned geneticist, Jake Holden, has less than a month to complete his research that will save his brother. Jake is mired in a government conspiracy and pitted against a multibillion-dollar pharmaceutical conglomerate. Big Pharma wants to patent the cure. A trillion-dollar drug. Jake wants the cure for his brother and the public good.
"Flashblind" asks many questions that many Americans would want answered: How far would our government go to win a nuclear war, and would they allow thousands to die each year from cancer as part of a conspiracy of secrecy?
Beginning with the Manhattan Project and based on the proceedings of the US Commission on Human Radiation Experiments, Flashblind follows one family’s struggle to survive a modern day government and big pharma conspiracy. The greatest scientific race of modern time has the potential to either cure or kill.
For more information please contact the author at paulbernstein(at)flashblindnovel.com. "Flashblind" is published by ZOVA Books in Los Angeles, California.
