On Arthur Lyons and Jacob Asch
J. Kingston Pierce has written the most amazing tribute to Arthur Lyons, author of several P.I. novels featuring Palm Springs-based detective Jacob Asch. Lyons, most recently a city councilman and founder of the annual Film Noir festival, died last week at the age of 62. Jiro Kimura broke the news. And now, like many others I suspect, I have a number of books to track down ASAP.
