"David Scott Milton is that rare contemporary American writer whose body of work represents an honest and authentic study of the mysteries of the human heart. In Iron City he creates a fast-moving and original plot, and a lead character whose pain and passion haunt the reader long after the story's end." Gina Nahai, author of Caspian Rain
David Scott Milton started as an early member of Theater Genesis alongside Sam Shepard, Leonard Melfi, and Murray Mednick. His first plays, "The Interrogation Room" and "Halloween Mask," were produced there. Later plays, "Duet" and Bread," were done at the American Place Theatre. Duet, starring Ben Gazzara, went on to Broadway. Milton's play Skin won the Neil Simon Playwriting Award. His screenplay, Born to Win, became Ivan Passer's first American film and starred George Segal and Karen Black. He has published six novels. Paradise Road was cited by the Mark Twain Journal "for significant contribution to American literature." From 1977 until recently, he taught playwriting and screenwriting at USC. For thirteen years, he taught creative writing to men at the maximum security prison in Tehachapi, California. He wrote an article about the prison for the Los Angeles Times, and he created a one-man show, Murderers Are My Life, which was nominated as best one-man show by the Valley Theater League of Los Angeles.
I found this to be a pretty good police mystery that also provided a glimpse into the diversity of Pittsburgh. Read morePublished 20 months ago by DaveReadsALot
An average detective story made more interesting with lots of memories from the old neighborhood. Good twist at the end to resolve the drama.Published on August 31, 2013 by John from Pittsburgh
This book was better than I expected. The ending was totally unexpected. The characters were very interesting and varied a lot in personalities. Read morePublished on July 10, 2013 by Karen Grubel
There are a great many characters in this book, perhaps too many altogether and too many who are underdeveloped. Read morePublished on July 7, 2013 by Rosemary T. Hornak
An interesting story that kept me wondering until the end. I kept trying to place the locations even though it's been many years since I moved from the Pittsburgh area.Published on June 26, 2013 by Carol Legg
I chose this because of the title since I am a Pittsburgh native. The book does reflect the city, but didn't develop the characters very well. Read morePublished on May 25, 2013 by GRAMMY429

Good story with a good ending
Main character seemed like a real person
