Three years ago, local Malibu author Tony Precopio almost died. His kidneys had failed and he needed dialysis and months of recovery to get back on his feet. 

Precopio had just finished his new book, “Murder in Malibu,” but halted the publishing process due to his illness. In late July, he finally released it to the public.
