Signings– newly scheduled events with the authors appearing in our shop to sign books:
Sat, May 9, noon, Greg Rucka signs Walking Dead (Bantam hc, $25.00). After a year of quiet, Atticus and Alena are beginning to feel as if their past has left them alone. When their neighbors are murdered, their initial belief is that it was a horrible mistake and the victims were killed in error. But the answers are not so simple and getting them will lead the pair around the planet, from the deserts of the Middle East to the deserts of the American West. A series HIGHLY recommended by JB.
Tues, June 9, noon, Andrew Grant signs Even (St. Martin’s hc, $24.95). Trevellyan is an undercover intelligence op for the Royal Navy, though occasional free-lance work is unofficially allowed. In NYC, he finds himself framed for murder. The local cops hand him off to the Feds and his consulate refuses to help. He’s going to be on his own to get out of this trouble and discover who set him up. Janine raves about this debut. The author is the younger brother of Lee Child, and they’ll be signing here together. Talent, it seems, runs in this family.
Tues, June 23, noon, Mary Daheim signs Loco Motive (Morrow hc, $23.95). The cousins leave the B&B on a trans-continental train trip to Boston when a collision stops the traveling in Montana. First, the train hits a truck. Then one of the passengers is found murdered. Wee Willie Weevil had been an irritating guest and they were glad to be done with him. Seems someone else felt the same way.
Sat, June 27, 2-4pm, tea and conversation: Patricia K. Batta signs Why Did You Die in the Park? (Lillimar tpo, $14.95). Second with Bellevue, WA amateur sleuth Marge Christensen. While sketching in one of the region’s parks, Marge spies a freshly, but not completely, buried body. The author now lives back in her home state of Michigan, but lived in the Puget Sound area for 21 years. We’ll also have her debut mystery, What Did You Do Before Dying? (Lillimar tpo, $14.95) in which Marge solves the murder of her husband, whom the police believe committed suicide. Come have tea and talk.
