Upcoming events

John Connolly signs The Wolf in Winter (Monday, November 10 at 12pm)
Prosperous, ME, is as wealthy as it sounds and guards itself carefully. It doesn’t accept strangers, only begrudgingly allowing tourists to come to look at the ancient church, moved there and reconstructed stone by stone, from England. But there is something ugly and morbid going on – a dead hobo and a missing girl – and PI Charlie Parker is heading their way. The results ripple far and wide. 12th in the series by the Irishman, a series highly recommeded by JB, Fran, and Adele. (SeaMystery)… (more)

A young writer travels to a prison to interview a man accused of a couple of grisly murders. A photographer, the accused works are disturbing. The writer is supposed to do a profile of the killer and the crimes but he begins to have doubts that the man is guilty. Now the guy’s sister – that’s someone capable of horrors! And then there is someone that the people involved in the case refer to as “The Puppeteer”. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Maia Chance signs Snow White Red-Handed (Saturday, November 15 at 12pm)
In 1867, a frustrated American actress talks her way into a job as lady’s maid to a millionaire’s bride.

Soon, a series of bad things take place: the ruins of Snow White’s cottage are found with the remains of a dwarf inside and the new groom is murdered via poisoned apple. Everyone looks at Ophelia the actress with suspicion and she’s in a Grimm spot of trouble. (SeaMystery)… (more)

The peace that has settled in on Poke Rafferty and his family is erased when his adopted daughter buys an iPhone from a street vendor and they discover that, first, it was stolen and, second, it contains photos of two murdered corrupt cops. Adele recommends this author. (SeaMystery)
F. Paul Wilson signs Fear City (Wednesday, November 19 at 12pm)
Rage, terror, and redemption: these are the stones upon which F. Paul Wilson builds the concluding chapter of Repairman Jack: The Early Years, the prequel trilogy focusing on the formative years of Wilson's globally popular supernatural troubleshooter. The strands of Jack's life, established in the first two books, Cold City and Dark City, are now woven into a complete pattern. Centered around an obscure group of malcontents intent on creating a terrible explosion in New York City in 1993, Fear City shows the final stages of young Jack becoming Repairman Jack. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Bernadette Pajer signs Edison Effect (Saturday, November 29 at 12pm)
UW Professor Bradshaw is drawn into the controversy over electrical services. Edison wants his help but Bradshaw resists.

For anyone wanting a book earlier than Thanksgiving Weekend, let us know and Bernadette will come in to sign reserves when the book is just out. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Phillip Margolin signs Woman With A Gun (Thursday, December 11 at 12pm)
Fiction based on a real photograph that has haunted the author for years. Aspiring writer Stacey Kim sees a photo in a museum retrospective and is entranced. It shows a woman in a wedding dress, on a beach, looking out into the distance, and holding a revolver behind her back. Stacey wants to know the story. Her curiosity will lead her to an unsolved murder and the one person who might be able to crack the case isn’t talking – the photographer. The photo that Phil saw will adorn the dust jacket. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Jayne Ann Krentz signs Trust No One (Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 12pm)
For Grace Elland, finding a vodka bottle next to the lifeless body of her boss, motivational speaker Sprague Witherspoon, is a deliberately terrifying reminder of the horrors of her past. It’s no coincidence, either. Retreating to her hometown, she tries to put everything she’s learned about positive thinking to use, a plan that’s tested by the world’s worst blind date with venture-capitalist Julius Arkwright. She shares nothing with this man who lives to make money, but the intense ex-Marine does have some useful skills—and he’s ideal help when it becomes clear trouble has followed her home. (SeaMystery)… (more)
Tracy Weber signs A Killer Retreat (Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 12pm)
Taking her boyfriend and German shepherd along to a ‘working vacation’ at a retreat, Kate Davidson’s yoga classes go well enough.
