On Larry Peterson: Larry Peterson is a veteran journalist with four decades of experience as a political reporter, columnist, supervising editor and freelance writer. He and his wife, former Los Angeles Times reporter Lanie Lippincott Peterson, have owned a home on Tybee Island, Ga., since 1993 and now live there with their two cats and a golden retriever. Their daughter, Lindsay, attends Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah.
Veteran political reporter Mike Taylor’s been there, done that. Rigged polls, slimy advertising, laundered campaign cash – he’s covered them all. He likes to take names and kick ass. He’s won awards, but among his favorite trophies are the scalps of crooked or just plain dumb politicians.
Starting a new job at the Clarion in Savannah, Georgia, Taylor returns to the town’s Mayberry-by-the-Sea neighbor, Tybee Island, where he spent an enchanted summer as a youth. At the newspaper, he encounters out-of-touch senior editors trying to use draconian budget cuts and trendy journalism fads to weather a financial crisis. But nothing seems to work.
Meanwhile, Taylor revels in the historic marvels of Savannah, with its quaint squares, classic fountains, and canopies of oaks that droop moss and cast dappled shadows against aging columns and towers. He hopes to keep his head down and just do his job. But his job always seems to draw him into the eye of a storm. And, despite its scenic charm, Savannah is no exception.
