Jennifer McMahon signs Burntown
Seattle Mystery Bookshop, Monday, April 24 at 12pm
Ashford, Vermont, might look like your typical sleepy New England college town, but to the shadowy residents who live among the remains of its abandoned mills and factories, it's known as Burntown.

Eva Sandeski, known as Necco on the street, has been a part of this underworld for years, ever since the night her father Miles drowned in a flood that left her and her mother Lily homeless. A respected professor, Miles was also an inventor of fantastic machines, including one so secret that the plans were said to have been stolen from Thomas Edison's workshop. According to Lily, it's this machine that got Miles murdered.

Necco has always written off this claim as the fevered imaginings of a woman consumed by grief. But when Lily dies under mysterious circumstances, and Necco's boyfriend is murdered, she's convinced her mother was telling the truth. Now, on the run from the man called Snake Eyes, Necco must rely on other Burntown outsiders to survive.

There are the fire eaters, mystical women living off the grid in a campsite on the river's edge, practicing a kind of soothsaying inspired by powerful herbs called the devil's snuff; there's Theo, a high school senior who is scrambling to repay the money she owes a dangerous man; and then there's Pru, the cafeteria lady with a secret life.

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)

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!

Seattle Mystery Bookshop, 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)

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)

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.
