  • (1888PressRelease) April 12, 2017 - Ft Lauderdale, FLORIDA - Deerfield Beach publishing house TriMark Press has recently announced that The Hedgecock Friasko, one of their recent releases has won a general fiction prize at the Los Angeles Book Festival. According to publisher Barry Chesler, "We were confident that the book would be well received and that author Rick Hussey would get recognition that he deserves. It is not only an intriguing tale but a story that could easily be pulled from today's headlines."

    The story, which draws on the darker side of the tropical landscapes of Ft Lauderdale, Florida, dramatically opens as a jogger is shot. That jogger turns out to be Stephen Foerster, a man embroiled in scandal and on the run from his high profile life. The Hedgecock Friasko tantalizes readers with Stephen's secret, that he exposed an illegal Ponzi scheme and dirty fracking operation orchestrated by his former employer. A heart-pounding race for survival then ensues amid an approaching deadly hurricane. Can Stephen escape the many competing forces who want him dead? Will the help he receives from the most unlikely sources allow him to not only survive but triumph?

    The Hedgecock Friasko is the culmination of an idea that the author had been thinking about for many years and decided the time was right to tell this story. "It was my dream to write a novel, and I thank everyone who believed in me and encouraged me along the way."says author Rick Hussey, "I am honored to be mentioned in a contest where less than five percent of the entrants were recognized." The author was invited to Los Angeles to receive his prize for The Hedgecock Friasko.
