David Hidalgo is best know as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist with the group, Los Lobos. He’s also a member of the Los Super Seven and another group, Latin Playboys, that includes several other Los Lobos members.
I snapped the photo last fall when Patricia and I met David on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise. Like Patricia and I, Mulligan, the hero of my crime novels, is a big blues fan, listening to the likes of Buddy Guy, Tommy Castro and BB King as he cruises around New England exposing bad guys.
The Dread Line is the fifth book in the Edgar Award-winning series of hardboiled crime novels by Bruce DeSilva. In it, New England Patriots, still shaken by a series of murder charges against one of their star players (true story) have hired Liam Mulligan, the hero of the novels, to investigate the background of a college star they are thinking of drafting. At first, the job seems routine, but as soon as he starts asking questions, he gets push-back. The player has something to hide, and someone is willing to kill to make sure it remains secret.
To order The Dread Line, you can choose from a list of independent or chain online bookstores here.
