It's off-season in Aspen and former TV writer turner private eye Jake Wheeler is hired to find bimbette-in-training Tinker Mellon. Using what little he's learned from The Rockford Files and other TV detective shows, Jake's search for the cheerleader-turned-runaway uncovers a complex crime ring that lies deep within the old mines shafts of Aspen mountain.

So begins Aspen Pulp, a slalom ride of mystery for Jake and his crew of misfits and burnouts which include Hermy, the booze-swilling Swiss ski instructor, Ernie, the yokel deputy of the Aspen PD, and Winston, a loyal malamute the size of a snowmobile.

Filled with hilarious digs at its ostentatious home, Aspen Pulp is a page-turning debut.

Chapter 1

"Remember when this town was a work free drug place?" Herman asked.

The Swiss expat slammed back a shot of tequila and then flinched as if the smelly yellow liquid had ignited a cerebral aneurism.

"If you can remember those days, you weren't here," I said.

It was about nine in the morning, late in the politically whacked summer of 2003, and the Big Easy's dishwasher was just finishing the nightshift, chanting what sounded like Spanglish reggae into the dreadlocks of a kitchen mop. But the Rasta wetback was making enough sense to serenade me back to 1975.

Praise for Aspen Pulp

"Perhaps I should recuse myself because I have long been a fan of Patrick Hasburgh’s writing (we created two TV shows together). But I can’t, because Aspen Pulp, his first novel, sets a new high point for the comic novel. Patrick’s social commentary, keen sense of dialogue and funny take on life, make this book a delight."
- Stephen Cannell, author of Vertical Coffin
