Stephen Hunter signs G-Man (Saturday, May 27 at 12pm)
Friday May 27th at Noon - Stephen Hunter signs G-Man
Retired Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger has finally sold the old family homestead in Arkansas. The developer digs up a metal case that contains material from his grandfather, Charles, who died before Bob was born, and a man his own father never talked about. The items date to 1934, to the era of the tommygun, and concern a man so violent his was kicked out of the Chicago Outfit. The new TV series “Sniper” is based on the movie Sniper which was based on Hunter’s first Swagger book, Point of Impact. It’s a series JB highly recommends, especially for those who have run out of Reacher to read.
Now a formal event!
Remember to get any back list signed you need to purchase the new book at our event. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Christina Carbo signs The Weight Of Night (Saturday, June 10 at 12pm)
In a land sculpted by glaciers, the forest is on fire. Thick smoke chokes the mountain air and casts a twilight glow over the imposing mountains and vistas of Montana's Glacier National Park. When firefighters are called in to dig fuel line breaks near the small town bordering the park, a crewmember is shocked to unearth a shallow grave containing human remains.
Park Police Officer Monty Harris is summoned to the site to conduct an excavation. But with a 2,500-degree incendiary monster threatening to barrel through the town and no forensic detective on hand, Monty must work outside protocol. So he seeks help from Gretchen Larson, the county's lead crime scene investigator, and someone on whom Monty feels he can rely.
The two are working against the clock to determine the true identity of the victim when a teenager suddenly disappears from one of the campgrounds in Glacier. Could the cases somehow be connected? As chances for recovery of the missing boy grow slimmer and the FBI finds only dead ends, Gretchen and Monty desperately race to fit all the pieces together in time. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Leslie Budewitz signs Treble at the Jam Fest (Thursday, June 15 at 12pm)
Erin Murphy, manager of Murphy’s Mercantile (aka the Merc), is tuning up for Jewel Bay’s annual Jazz Festival. Between keeping the Merc’s shelves stocked with Montana’s tastiest local fare and hosting the festival’s kick-off concert, Erin has her hands full.
Discord erupts when jazz guitarist Gerry Martin is found dead on the rocks above the Jewel River. The one-time international sensation had fallen out of sync with festival organizers, students, and performers. Was his death an accident—or did someone even the score?
Despite the warning signs to not get involved, Erin investigates. And when the killer attacks, she orchestrates her efforts into one last crescendo, hoping to avoid a deadly finale. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Martin Walker signs The Templar’s Last Secret (Thursday, June 15 at 12pm)
DOUBLE TROUBLE! Walker & Budewitz signing together!
When a woman's body is found at the foot of a cliff near St. Denis, Bruno suspects a connection to the great ruin that stands on the cliff above: the Chateau de Commarque, a long-ago Knights Templar stronghold which, along with the labyrinth of prehistoric caves beneath it, continues to draw the interest of scholars.
With the help of Amelie, a young Haitian newcomer to the Dordogne, Bruno learns that the dead woman was an archaeologist searching for a religious artifact of incredible importance, the discovery of which could have dramatic repercussions throughout the Middle East--not to mention in St. Denis. And the woman's ties to Islamic terrorists can only heighten the pressure on Bruno to unravel the centuries-old mystery. Meanwhile, an old flame of Bruno's is assigned to work with him on the case, and the two find time, naturellement, to enjoy the supreme pleasures of the wine, food, and beauty of the Dordogne.

The director is apoplectic, Tony's agent is stumped, and the producer is found murdered.

Then there are some real movie stars with reputations to protect. To find the killer, Ellie must separate the lies from the truth, unearthing secrets no one wants revealed along the way. But before she can solve the producer's murder, she must locate Tony Eberle. (SeaMystery)… (more)
