Two Shots At Kuhlken

If you liked Ken Kuhlken's earlier mysteries about the Hickeys--a California family of investigators, lawyers and musicians--you have two chances this month to renew old acquaintances. Poisoned Pen has a new paperback edition of The Loud Adios to go with The Do-Re-Me, a thoughtful and exciting hardcover. Among its other virtues, Do-Re-Mi captures summer 1972 and its motley crew--outlaw bikers, war protestors, marijuana growers and users--to understated perfection.
