As the alumni article below lays out, I will be doing a discussion of my new thriller The Point of a Gun in San Francisco at the Ferry Building at 6:00pm two weeks from Thursday, April 19. As an added twist, one of my fellow Stanford Economics Ph.D. graduate student colleagues who I haven’t seen in 45 years will be sharing the podium with me discussing his thrillers as well. Townsend and I have had parallel non-intersecting careers. Non-intersecting that is until two weeks from Thursday night.

It would be great to see you there! And, yes, I’ll sign and inscribe copies of my books for you even if you bring them with you and don’t buy them that night.

This from the April 2018 edition of  STANFORD (ALUMNI) WHERE YOU LIVE:

 “PhD Econ Alums and Their New Thrillers” Thursday, April 19 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Free; pay for your own drinks; books available for purchase.

Book Passage, Ferry Building 1 San Francisco Bay Trail, San Francisco 94111

Contact Townsend Walker, PhD ’76, at or Steve Kohlhagen at or at 843 478-6853 for more information.

Townsend Walker, PhD ’76, and Steve Kohlhagen, PhD ’74, haven’t seen each other in over 44 years, since Stanford Graduate School in the summer of ’73. Townsend went to work in banking; Steve, to teach at Berkeley. Then Townsend to teaching and Steve to banking. Parallel, non-intersecting lives. But now they both write fast-paced, hard-boiled fiction. They will get together to discuss and read from their latest books: 3 Women, 4 Towns, 5 Bodies (Walker) and The Point of a Gun (Kohlhagen). Afterward, you can stay for drinks with the authors.
