More About the Author

Alan Dale Dickinson [this subject author] was born in downtown Los Angeles, California, during an earthquake. He will not disclose in what year as that would make him feel older and he already feels old enough]. He came into this crazy old mixed up world at the famous California Medical Center located right downtown LA at the 110 [Harbor Freeway] and the 10 [Santa Monica Freeway].

That makes him a native Californian. Although he has traveled around the globe, he has never found any location that he likes better than right here in sunny southern California. After attending California State University-Fullerton, where he degreed in: accounting, economics, Finance, management, and real estate, he became an Corporate Vice President of Bank of America [the largest bank in the USA and the 13 largest bank in the whole world] and worked for them for 20 years in and around the LA/Orange County area.

Also he holds a Life Time Teaching Credential from the State of California for any Community College in the fields of: International Business and Banking.
He holds numerous recognitions, prestiegous awards, and certificates from the different organizations that he has worked for over the past 35 years.

His lifetime love of detective novels, movies and TV shows, and his interest in real life PI's [Private Investigators] led to his first 4 mystery [crime-ficton Genre] novels. His anti-hero as well as his alter ego, is: Charlie O'Brien, PI. His 5th in the series, entitled "Charlie's Angeles" will be out sometime next year and it will be the final episode in this particular series.

Format: Paperback
You will never quite see life in the same way again after reading this book! I highly recommend it. The main character uses his faith and his background with the LAPD including 'street smarts' to great addvantage as he uses his God-fearing crime solving talents and panache to stand for what is right even in the far reaches of the globe. He is a good example of one who puts his faith into action. He encounters scary villians in modern crimes like bank embezzlements because he was expert at these cases with the LAPD. You'll feel like Charlie is so cool and smart. He's savvy with culture, fast cars, popular music, and countless points of professional interest about the places he travels in hot pursuit of white collar criminals. .

I rarely cannot get through a book, but ths is one of those times. The author goes off on tangents that have absolutely nothing to do with telling the story. After the first couple of chapters, I didn't even care anymore if there actually WERE a plot.

As a Christian, I found this novel refreshing. So often I read books that are enjoyable, but bad language and too many sexual overtones detract from the main plot. Charlie is a smart detective who uses his prior experience with the LAPD to his advantage. This book kept my attention from beginning to end. Keep up the great writing, Mr. Dickinson!

This book is NOT gripping!
I think it just goes off into describing places and does not stay focused on the story!
