David Handler Join us for the annual Purves Lecture with Connecticut mystery writer David Handler. David Handler, who began his career in New York as a journalist, was born and raised in Los Angeles and published two highly acclaimed novels about growing up there, Kiddo and Boss, before resorting to a life of crime fiction. He has written eight novels about the witty and dapper celebrity   ghostwriter Stewart Hoag and his faithful, neurotic basset hound, Lulu, including the Edgar and American Mystery Award-winning The Man Who Would Be F. Scott Fitzgerald. He has also written ten novels featuring the mismatched crime-fighting duo of New York film critic Mitch Berger and Connecticut State  trooper Desiree Mitry. His first Berger-Mitry novel, The Cold Blue Blood, was a Dilys Award finalist and Book Sense Top Ten pick. David launched a new series featuring teen runaway tracker, Benji Golden, with the publication of Runaway Man in August 2013, and the newest Berger-Mitry, The Coal Black Asphalt Tomb, is now available.
