Hemingway Jersey Shore Thriller

Richard C Hemingway and the novel Past Twilight:  Mainstream fiction stirred with Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Action/Adventure and more than a smidgen of Science Fiction and humor. And yes, all served up by a hard boiled detective.


Novel Contest has been cancelled due to total lack of interest. 

Can you figure out the real name of the town on the Jersey Shore and the real name of the bar/hotel that gets trashed in the hurricane?

If you lived in the town during the period the answer should be easy to figure out even though all of the location(e.g. restaurant, bar etc,)names have been changed. Most but not all of the described geography is accurate. If you are younger and not familiar with the Jersey Shore, you are going to have to investigate just like the protagonist in this novel and pay attention to the location clues in the novel.  

  1st prize - $500* and a free meal on the author**.

4th prize - $25

** Value of meal not to exceed $40. I would prefer to have a one to one dinner experience, but if this is not possible, I will send a gift card to a local restaurant in your area.

 From time to time I will give some clues that may be helpful.

 Clue #1 Ocean Beach was the original name of the town.
 Clue#2  A famous actor was born in the town next to the fictional town of Ocean Beach. One of the scenes in the book was inspired by this actor's most famous picture.
Clue#3 The character 'Mary O' was a well known performer during this period and her real name was...?
Clue#4 The Jazz/Blues niteclub in the novel was based on a real club that featured Jazz and Blues music in the real town that was used as the inspiration for Ocean Beach.
