Never Call It LovingFern Graham is a journalist who believes herself to be a typical modern woman as she attempts to balance work, home and family. If she sometimes feels that something is missing, she assumes that she is foolish. Fern allows herself to relax by listening to music, especially the voice of Pietro Petrungero, an Italian tenor.
"What a lot of raffish, rowdy, reprehensible people Michael Katz has assembled on Redondo Beach. I loved hanging out with them, and I was sorry when the party was over."
THE STORY: Sportscaster Andy Sussman is plunged into the raucous and sometimes hilarious word of pro wrestling when Dr. Double XX drowns during the Network Celebrity Superstars race. Andy’s buddy, detective Murray Glick, joins him straight from one of his Mystery Cruises to help solve the case.
"[Andy Sussman's] dogged pursuit of the facts is consistently beguiling. Katz' character is as relentless in the pursuit of the story as Gregory McDonald's Irwin Fletcher, and he could just as easily be played by Chevy Chase."
New York Newsday
"Katz makes the men behind the gaudy facades believable figures rather than comic grotesques...the unmasking of both victim and killer is cleverly and comically plotted."
Los Angeles Times
"The second adventure of Andy Sussman, an out-of-shape, un-suave personality, should delight his fans...Funny, poignant, and definitely human."
"Michael Katz is one of the wittier crime writers to come along in some time. I enjoyed Last Dance In Redondo Beach every wry step of the way. Don't miss it!"
