Jayne Castle signs Hot Zone (Tuesday, August 26 at 12pm)
The world of Harmony has its wonders, one of them being Rainshadow Island. Just beneath its surface, a maze of catacombs hides a dangerous secret...Halloween--with its tricks and treats--is a dust bunny's dream come true. Just ask Lyle, Sedona Snow's faithful sidekick. But for Sedona, it's a nightmare. Though her new job managing a small hotel and tavern on Rainshadow is helping her move on from her tragic past, a bizarre disaster down in the catacombs has brought a pack of rowdy ghost hunters to her inn.
And now, Sedona's ex has arrived on the island, claiming he wants to get back together, just as a newcomer appears to have a strong interest in her. Cyrus Jones is the new Guild boss in town. He has his own agenda when it comes to Sedona, but even the best-laid plans are no match for the passion that springs up on Rainshadow... (SeaMystery)… (more)
Neil Low signs Theater of The Crime (Wednesday, September 10 at 12pm)
A fire at a historic Seattle theater leaves behind smoldering clues and bodies. Detectives Alan Stewart and Vera Deward once again find themselves in the midst of an international mystery. They’re frustrated by a troupe of Russian Émigrés, magicians, and dancers who may know more than they are willing to say. As the murders continue, the partners employ hard-knock detective techniques, psychic predictions, potions, and good old fashioned sleuthing to find that in the world of magic, sleight-of-hand and treachery can reach beyond the stage.

James Ellroy signs Perfidia (Friday, September 12 at 12pm)
The story of 24 days in LA, starting on Dec 6th, 1941, 608 pages of masterful noir. The first of a new L.A. Quartet we’re promised – presumably covering ’41 – the Black Dahlia murder. Characters from earlier books grapple with massive change within their city: Dudley, Bucky, Lee, Buzz, Kay, Sid, Ward, along with historical figures – detectives, police chiefs, mayors, gangsters, studio bosses and actors. A sprawling epic of crime, paranoia, racism, violence, betrayal, narcissism and, of course, war. The hardest of noir, not a nice book but a great book – JB recommends – his review comes next week.
Please Understand – this is a stock signing. We’re told he will sign older titles as long as you buy the new book only from us. Check with us before you drop anything off as time will be limited. (SeaMystery)… (more)

Saturday September 13th Time To Be Determined - Peter May signs The Lewis Man

This will be a drop-in signing. Reserving a copy required. Older books to be signed by prior arrangement. (SeaMystery)… (more)

Hank Phillippi Ryan signs Truth Be Told (Friday, October 10 at 12pm)
Truth Be Told is part of the bestselling Jane Ryland and Jake Brogan series.
It begins with tragedy: a middle-class family evicted from their suburban home. In digging up the facts on this heartbreaking story—and on other foreclosures— reporter Ryland soon learns the truth behind a big-bucks scheme and the surprising players who will stop at nothing, including murder, to keep their goal a secret. Turns out, there’s more than one way to rob a bank. Boston police detective Jake Brogan has a liar on his hands. A man has just confessed to the famous twenty-year-old Lilac Sunday killing, and while Jake’s colleagues take him at his word, Jake is not so sure. But he has personal reasons for hoping they’ve finally solved the cold case. (SeaMystery)… (more)

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)
