Frank Zafiro signs The Last Collar (Saturday, April 29 at 12pm)
Half of the writing team – th other author is Lawrence Kelter. The demons that drive John “Mocha” Moccia to obsess, to put absolutely everyone under a microscope, and scratch away at every last clue, make him the best hardnosed detective in Brooklyn homicide. But these same demons may very well write the final chapter in his career.

He isn’t the kind of detective to take no for an answer, but in his most recent case answers are damn hard to come by. Partnered with the conscientious Detective Matt Winslow, Mocha endeavors to solve the murder of the wealthy and beautiful Jessica Shannon, a woman who had every reason to live. (SeaMystery)… (more)

Elspeth Bright, a gifted student Kitty meets there, dies over winter break—frozen to death in Central Park. Without any other signs of foul play, the doctor and even Elspeth’s family believe that her sleepwalking is the cause of the tragedy. But Kitty isn’t so sure.

Kitty visits the family to pay her respects and meets Elspeth’s mother, Maria Bright, a member of the Congressional Union, a vocal suffrage group. Elspeth’s father, Dr. Bright, is a scientist who serves on the Naval Consulting Board, which evaluates civilian proposals for new naval inventions. One of Elspeth’s friends says she was working on something to do with batteries, and Kitty learns that the inventor, Thomas Edison, has a new battery that will soon be submitted to the naval board for approval. Could Elspeth’s father’s job have anything to do with her death?

For fans of Susan Elia MacNeal, Jacqueline Winspear, and Rhys Bowen, Murder Between the Lines is based on true historical events and follows beloved character Kitty Weeks on another WWI adventure. (SeaMystery)

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)

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)

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)

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.
