Local author Richard North Patterson is best known for his tense, well-researched thrillers set in the present day, dealing with topical issues like terrorism and gun control. But in his latest book, "Loss of Innocence," he takes readers back to the summer of 1968 and the social upheaval of that time. Patterson joins us to talk about the book, and about how he made the transition from San Francisco trial lawyer to bestselling writer.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Richard North Patterson, author of 21 novels including "Loss of Innocence;" and former trial lawyer and attorney for the Securities and Exchange Commission
