Product description


“By setting the action in 1963, Goldberg is able to reference the House Anti-American Activities Committee as a backdrop, with plenty of scope for conflict of a personal nature, and also to explore changing attitudes towards homosexuality over the past 50 years. An enjoyable read.”
Crime Review

“Hollywood Hang Ten is reminiscent of Ross MacDonald at his best. The novel evokes the atmosphere of LA, and the seediness of Hollywood. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.”

“A good read. Four stars.”
Nancy Witt – Reviewer

“This did invoke some classic Ross MacDonald, which I love. Good job by Goldberg and I look forward to her future titles.”
Lisa Hoffman - Librarian

“1963 was a very good year.  That said, Eve Goldberg can bring it alive for those of you who cannot remember/have never been exposed to 1963 Southern California.  She has the music, the films, the highways, the cars, the crimes. And a sweet young protagonist, attempting to keep his Uncle Lou's PI business up and running through an extended hospitalization. Ryan has worked with his uncle for the five years since high school graduation, but his heart and mind has been committed to his surfboard. But when push comes to shove, he knuckles down to protect the client and solve the mystery. An excellent read.”
Bonnye Reed Fry - Reviewer

“The case of a missing boy leads to stolen photographs, blackmail, and murder--with tentacles reaching back to the 1950s. Hollywood Hang Ten adeptly places the reader in time and place.  I liked the way Ryan's character is forced into growth by the circumstances he encounters.  It is particularly interesting to see the cultural differences that have occurred since 1963.”
Book Garden

“A light mystery where the bad guy is all bad and the private detective hero is a little reluctant, in over his head, and propelled by a sense of justice. The details about LA as it was fifty years ago are fun; Venice before gentrification, Polynesian bars, and driving around with the old songs.”
Mark Share - Reviewer

“Ryan Zorn wants to be a PI, It is 1963 and a divorced mom hires him to find her son who has gone missing. This high octane read would make a great movie.”
Tracy Shephard - Reviewer

“An interesting 1960s Hollywood-set mystery. Ryan is running his uncle’s PI firm while he’s in hospital, and although he’s been his uncle’s apprentice (of sorts) for a while, he soon realises that there’s a big difference between helping with cases and solving them yourself. I raced through the book to find out how it was going to resolve itself.”
Verity Wilde - media
