Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Tuesday, February 3 at 7pm
Attend the duscussion and purchase his latest book from Edgar Award Winning Author Thomas Perry. This is his latest Jane Whitefield mystery, A string of beads.

Although this is Mr Perry's first appearance at Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, it is approximately his 22nd novel. Don't miss the author, the discussion and buying Mr. Perry's latest book.

A string of beads

After two decades protecting innocent victims on the run, and a year after getting shot on a job that took a dangerous turn for the worse, Jane McKinnon, nee Whitefield, has settled into the quiet life of a suburban housewife in Amherst, New York--or so she thinks.

One morning as she comes back from a long run, Jane is met by an unusual sight: all eight clan mothers, the female leaders of the Seneca clans, parked in her driveway in two black cars. A childhood friend of Jane's from the reservation, Jimmy, is wanted by the police for the murder of a local white man. But instead of turning himself in, he's fled, and no one knows where he is hiding out. At the clan mothers' request, Jane retraces a walking trip she and Jimmy took together when they were fourteen in hopes that he has gone the same way again. But it soon becomes clear that the police aren't the only ones after him. As the chase intensifies, the number of people caught up in this twisted plot multiplies, and Jane is the only one who can protect those endangered by it. "A string of beads" is an addictive, fast-paced thriller about how abandoning the past can sometimes be the hardest thing to do, even when your life--and the life of those you love--depends on it.

Pie Girls Event: A Slice of the Pie
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Tuesday, February 10 at 6:30pm
ADVENTURES IN ADVERTISING Pie Girls By JoBe Cerny At last, a novel about advertising from the stay-at-home spouse's point of view! Pie Girls isn't Mad Men. It is a romantic comedy written by Lauren Clark about a Southern Belle who is married to a creative director at a fictional agency in Atlanta, Georgia. Searcy Roberts is the stay-at-home wife of Alton Roberts, an advertising genius, who is in high demand. He works long hours and is indispensable to a majority of the agency's clients. Alton Roberts can do no wrong and his salary escalates with each new idea. He is constantly jet-setting from client to client, and he frequently is on the road and/or working late at the office. Searcy spends her days shopping for designer clothes and jewelry, exercising, beautifying, and lunching with her girlfriends. She especially enjoys Alton's money. To celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary, Searcy plans a special romantic dinner at home. But people who work in advertising need to meet deadlines, and Alton misses the special evening; he doesn't even call. Searcy wonders what's wrong. She's crushed, but she is also ready to forgive and forget. She is a veteran of many broken promises. The dinner sits on the table for hours. Searcy goes to the agency early in the morning. Alton never got on the airplane, and was reported as missing. Everyone is worried, but Alton walks in the door to everyone's relief. The boss welcomes Alton with open arms, but Alton greets him with a resignation letter. Alton has a mid-life crisis and decides to join an Ashram. Searcy wants to comfort him, but he tells her he hasn't been happy with her or their relationship for a long time. He wants to end the marriage. Suddenly, Searcy's life of glamor ends abruptly as Alton disappears from her life. To make matters worse, Searcy's mother is very ill, and she returns to her home in Fairhope to take care of her mother's business, Pie Girls, which also has been faltering. In high school, her mother taught her the fine art of baking pies, and she remembers her mother's recipes and finds herself filling in for her mother. She continues to wonder what's wrong with Alton and their relationship. Searcy finds herself without money, and she can't go back to Atlanta because Alton's mother sold their condo. Searcy is no longer a Roberts and returns to home with her tail between her legs. Ten years living the high life did not ready Searcy for returning home eat humble pies. But a good dose of humility teaches Searcy to pull herself up by her boot straps. I really liked this book and produced it as an Audio Book. I think the audio book turned out very well. I saw a bit of myself in this book. I worked on advertising every day since 1973. At first I was an actor, model, and voice-over. Then I wrote, produced, and directed major accounts and won many advertising awards. And I did a lot of traveling. I missed some important things in my life. I didn't take enough vacations. When I finally did take the family to Disneyland before I left the hotel I got a call to leave my family and find a recording studio. There were no cell phones in those days, and the lines to make a call on a pay phone were very long. The agency made me check in every hour on the hour, which pretty much wrecked my family's day. The final call of the day revealed they didn't get copy approval and could wait until we got back. But cheer up Pie Girls has a happy ending Pie Girls by Lauren Clark was released two weeks ago on Amazon.com, Audible.com, and I-Tunes to very good reviews. It stars Mary Hollis Inboden as Searcy Roberts. It is a great romantic comedy that's both funny and heart-warming. It makes a great Valentine's Day Gift. Actors Audio & Publishing is having a buy a book/get a slice of pie event, on February 10th from 6:30 to 8;30 p.m. at Centuries & Sleuths, 7419 W. Madison Street, Forest Park, Illinois, Phone number 708-771-7243.
