Don't Let the Wind Catch You is the title of Aaron Paul Lazar's recently released novel, the latest in his beloved Gus LeGarde series of great mystery adventures. Earlier books are anchored by a pleasing family man--father, grandfather, friend--retired and enjoying the scenery and sometime peace of the Genesee Valley. But Grandfather Gus was once a twelve year old boy, on the cusp of adulthood, and Don't Let the Wind Catch You promises great coming of age mysteries and adventures from an earlier time, plus cross-generati
