New Thriller: CHILLY DOGS by Larry Rochelle
Author Larry Rochelle’s father, Palmer Sheldon Rochelle, was a union steward for the AFL-CIO at the Plaskon chemical factory in Toledo, Ohio. During the 1940s and 1950s, Plaskon and other union shops were fighting for the 40-hr week, for better wages, working conditions and respect for all workers.
Strikes happened, and when Plaskon was on strike, Palmer Rochelle took his son to walk the picket lines and eat the hot roast beef sandwiches that held the men together. It was common then and now for the owners of those factories to hire anti-union goons and strike-breakers to stop the strikes and intimidate the workers.
The son remembered his father’s struggles, became a union president when he taught in college, and watches today as corporations try to turn back the gains that unions made over the last eighty years.
Most of Rochelle’s novels show the underdogs trying to survive against malicious corporations and evil right-wing plots and assassinations. His latest thriller, Chilly Dogs, shows how the ruthless techniques of the right-wing crazies control the options of the working poor through the tactics of fear and intimidation today.

Excerpt

The newspaper office for B&G looked like a fortress from the outside, one of those big, concrete behemoths from the 1970s, but with big glass windows facing southwest onto Salisbury, letting too much afternoon sun into the office cubicles and entrance area. Lots of shadows during the mid-afternoon, but also instant blindness if you looked up into the slanting sunshine too abruptly, leaving you with little round sunshine dots in the middle of your eyes.
