Betrayal, Murder & Artwork
I just found a new review of Shadow Bay (noir visual crime novel collaboration with my friend & fellow Rhinebeck resident, Donald J. Rothschild) in the latest Poughkeepsie Journal weekend edition (Life section, August 5, 2012). I got a copy of the newspaper & scanned in the short article.
I didn't know this before, but the Poughkeepsie Journal is the third oldest newspaper in the US, & the oldest in NY state, according to Wikipedia.
As it's a short review, I'm copying the whole text here:
Writer Donald J. Rothschild and illustrator William T. Ayton, both Hudson Valley natives, have collaborated to create a visual crime novel called “Shadow Bay.”
Combining classic themes of lust, murder and betrayal, Rothschild tells a story of what happens when morality is compromised for money, as complemented by Ayton’s artwork.
Rothschild is also a screenwriter and playwright. “Shadow Bay” is based on his play of the same name. He lives in Rhinebeck with his wife and two sons.
Ayton is an internationally exhibited artist who has illustrated other works as well. He also lives in Rhinebeck with his wife and three children.
