Pete Noyes, retired newspaper and TV reporter, wrote a great book about his experiences in L.A. during the sixties and seventies. It’s called “The Real L.A. Confidential”. I befriended Pete through mutual friend Ed Foley and he inspired one of my favorite fictional characters, Al Murphy. I’ve also mined his book for story ideas. “Last Date” is one of these and I’m happy to tell you that it’s just been published on the Every Day Fiction site.
