Thriller Author and Hollywood Screenwriter Justin DiPego Releases His Highly Anticipated New Audiobook Seven O’Clock Man on Audible.com, Narrated by Daniel Martinez
Los Angeles, CA--February 19, 2021, Dipego Now Entertainment announces the release of the highly anticipated audiobook Seven O’Clock Man--an entertaining noir thriller set in 1980s Downtown Los Angeles. Something is preying on the denizens of Skid Row but when the victims are from the lost side of town, only one of the lost can stop the Seven O’Clock Man. Go for a ride and solve the mystery of who is the Seven O’Clock Man? And can one strung-out junkie stop him? You see...It’s not just any killer hunting in the flophouses, shooting up galleries and shantytowns—The Seven O’Clock Man is a legend, preying on the homeless since the first hobos hit the rails in the aftermath of the Civil War.
Seven O’Clock Man is, “A noir thriller set in LA—but not Los Angeles seen on screen. Instead, we're immersed in the other LA—the one downtown on Skid Row. That alone makes it fascinating, but the author's writing gives it an electricity that makes it hard to put down.” says one critic.
Author Justin DiPego visually paints Los Angeles as a series of doors. They aren’t hidden but you have to be paying attention to find them. Behind those doors whole worlds open up. In Seven o’Clock Man, DiPego opens one of those doors and pulls you through to the other side. It’s, “A look into the life on the streets that hasn’t improved any in the last three decades.” says critic Cynthia Hamilton.
