October 3rd at 7pm, Deborah Crombie
Jabberwocky Bookshop, Friday, October 3 at 7pm
Best-selling mystery author Deborah Crombie will talk about her latest novel, To Dwell in Darkness Friday Oct 3rd at 7 pm.

Previous titles in this series have won an impressive number of awards, including the Edgar,the Agatha, and the Macavity. Her latest novel is a powerful tale of intrigue, betrayal, and lies that will plunge married London detectives Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James into unspeakable darkness.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says, "Crombie is writing the crime fiction that's climbing into the ranks with Louise Penny's and Elizabeth George's novels… What I appreciate most about Crombie's novels is that they're built on compassion."

And there is this from Ann.Arbor.com:"Deborah Crombie's skills as a sophisticated novelist have only increased over time. What began as a standard, though excellent, police series based in London, has evolved into a series that's richly populated with detailed, complex characters, vivid settings, and themes. She’s neck and neck with authors like P.D. James and Elizabeth George, though she doesn’t share their sometimes completely bleak viewpoint....This author is one I look forward to reading without fail, and one who has never disappointed me yet. "
