YELAPA AUTHOR, ROBERT HARDIN, TO SIGN NEW NOVEL
Yelapa author Robert Hardin announces a book signing of Race Relations, the latest novel in his popular David Armstrong series.
In Race Relations, criminal attorney David Armstrong returns from an involuntary two year hiatus from practicing law and takes on the defense of a white Los Angeles police officer who is being retried after an appeals court reversed his conviction for murdering an unarmed teenaged black gang member.
In David’s first interview with the officer he asks him why he shot the teenager fourteen times and the officer says, “Because my Glock only held fourteen bullets.”
The case causes a conflict with David’s long-time lover, Felicia Bates-Baxter, California’s senior U.S. Senator, who publicly accused the police officer of being a brutal and racist cop during the first trial. David also has to contend with county prosecutors so hell-bent on sending the officer back to prison they flagrantly violate his constitutional rights. Like all the David Armstrong novels, the drama is played out in the courtroom.
Former northern California residents Robert Hardin and his wife, Kathryn, along with their two black cats, live year round in a beach house in Yelapa, a small village south of Puerto Vallarta and accessible only by boat. Race Relations is Hardin’s fifth novel since moving to Yelapa in January 2005.
All of Hardin’s books, including Race Relations, are available at amazon.com, Barnes & Nobles, and other bookstores in the U.S. and Canada. And they are available in Puerto Vallarta at NV Bookstore in the Paradise Plaza Shopping Center north of the city, at A Page in the Sun at 399 Olas Altas, and at Biblioteca Los Mangos at 1001 Avenue Francisco Villa.
