Pendelton C. Wallaceabout this book: Bikini Baristas is based on two true stories that happened in Seattle at the same time. To paraphrase the old Dragnet TV series, the story you are about to read is true, the names have been changed to protect the stupid.
I was inspired to write this book when I read an article in Seattle's The Weekly newspaper about "Dick Randall." It was such a juicy story, I couldn't resist.
At the same time, "Clayton's" story was on the TV news every night and filled the headlines. I can't make this stuff up.
Dick Randall is the owner of a chain of bikini barista stands in the Seattle area. Clayton Johnson-White is a teenage kid who thinks he's smarter than the rest of the world.
Dick's pickup truck is discovered burned-out in the California desert. What happened to him? Did he fake his death to escape his sleazy past or did the past catch up with him?
Clayton drops out of school and runs away into the woods of Camano Island. He breaks into vacation homes and steals what he needs.
Private detective Catrina Flaherty is hired by Dick's wife to find out how he disappeared. When she and her partner, Ted Higuera, start turning over stones, some shocking things come crawling out.
Ted's best friend, Chris Hardwick, has his first case as an associate in his father's law firm. He is assigned the Clayton Johnson-White file. Clayton has evolved into a professional criminal who teaches himself to fly, steals airplanes and goes on a nationwide crime spree.
Chris, Ted and Cat are intertwined on a case that takes on international proportions.
What do these two cases have in common? In the end, they come together with the force of colliding freight trains.
The surprise ending will catch you off-guard.
