Peter Sarda

Bakersfield, California, 1978. At a drive-thru dairy store off Highway 99, three lives have a rendezvous with fate. For local trailer trash, Hanson's Cash-n-Carry is a dream job. For the confirmation class at St. Paul's, it's an entitlement. For a big-city cop with a drinking problem, it's a last chance. When bright futures meet dark pasts, fate steps in and shows its hand. Getting there will make you laugh, cry, and cheer.

About the Author

Sarda, Peter: - Peter Sarda ( is an American writer living in Hamburg, Germany. His first novel, "Cash-n-Carry," is a coming-of-age story based on his rough-and-tumble upbringing in the 1970s in the murder capital of the Golden State. His second novel, "One-Way Ticket," is a noir thriller inspired by his adoptive home, a rugged harbor town with a lot of old trading money, a "sinful mile" devoted to the world's oldest profession, and a robust -- and colorful -- criminal underworld.
Praise for this book

"Sarda's main strength lies in how he breathes life into the characters and their world, both of which feel fully lived-in and authentic."
