Join us at the Colgate Bookstore on Saturday, April 14th at 1:30pm for a book signing and presentation by local author and veterinarian Frank Martorana. The cruelty of dog fighting, veganism vs. a meat inclusive diet, the credibility of veterinarians who enjoy hunting, and even the very notion of pet ownership, are hot button topics Frank Martorana weaves into his new novel, Taking on Lucinda. And it all happens while the reader enjoys a wild ride, as protagonist veterinarian, Kent Stephenson, battles to protect the people and animals in his town from a cult that thrives on all that animal lovers despise.
Dr. Martorana says, “My primary goal was to write a page-turner, with all the requisite arson, murder, and mayhem, but I also wanted it to shed a good light on our profession. By the time I looked up, I had a three-book series, The Kent Stephenson Thrillers.” (Books number two and three are complete and currently in production.)
“Martorana produces a compelling story starring an engaging hero…descriptions are strong. Both sides of the animal rights controversy are well-presented. A vet with investigative chops and his loyal coonhound make an appealing duo in this original story.” — Kirkus Reviews
