When one of the beautiful and lonely women who answers his ad turns up dead on the beach, Star is pulled into a conspiracy that could keep Hollywood in B movies for years. Bringing him face to face with an ex-military sadist, two dim-witted Appalachian twins, and a financier with dreams of turning an earthly paradise into the ultimate golf resort. Star finds himself not attracting beautiful women, but attracting a whole monsoon of trouble that keeps this unlikely slooth dodging bullets, lava, and legends.

About the author (2001)

Once active in zoology, Corson Hirschfeld has been a professional photographer for many years, working on assignment for corporations and magazines. His photographs of the world's sacred sites (which can be seen on his website) have shown at the Smithsonian Institution and other museums. As a writer, Corson has been drawn to whacky Americana and such less-than-sacred places as Waikiki, Las Vegas, and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Freeze Dry is Corson's third novel, following Aloha, Mr. Lucky, and Too High (all from Forge). Corson Hirschfeld lives in Cincinnati, with occasional forays into terra incognita.
