David Rosenfelt: Dates for HOUNDED tour

David Rosenfelt is doing just a few appearances to support HOUNDED, the latest in his Andy Carpenter series. If none of these are near you, you can contact the stores to reserve a copy. Almost every store is happy to have a copy signed for you. Andy Carpenter isn’t sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn’t expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that’s exactly where he arrives—at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Balfour....

KRISTI BELCAMINO AT ONCE UPON A CRIME Jul10

KRISTI BELCAMINO AT ONCE UPON A CRIME

It’s safe to say, tonight was an evening that longtime reporter Kristi Belcamino had long been looking forward to. This evening was the official print release of her debut novel BLESSED ARE THE DEAD. And judging from the long line of family and friends that spilled out of Once Upon A Crime’s front door, it’s an evening that her fans had been awaiting as well. Snacking on wine, cheese, fruit, and the most amazing cake I’ve ever had, the little book shop was filled with grateful readers looking to welcome a new voice to the genre. Inspired by her experiences with a serial killer while working the crime beat at a California newspaper,...

J.A. Jance: Dates for Remains of Innocence tour

J.A. Jance is gearing up for the release of REMAINS OF INNOCENCE, the 17th book in the Joanne Brady series. For it, she will spend a late July and most of August on the road. WHERE IS HE, GIRL?

Karin Slaughter: Dates for COP TOWN tour

COP TOWN, the latest by international bestselling author Karin Slaughter, lands in stores Tuesday. Take a look below to see if she will be appearing near you. Atlanta, 1974: As a brutal killing and a furious manhunt rock the city’s police department, Kate Murphy wonders if her first day on the job will also be her last.

But for a beautiful young woman, life will be anything but easy in the macho world of the Atlanta PD, where even the female cops have little mercy for rookies. It’s also the worst day possible to start given that a...

Guide to Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Fes...

In just a few short weeks I’ll board a plane, then another plane, then a train, and finally an automobile that will deliver me to the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, affectionately known in crime fiction circles as Harrogate (which is actually the name of the town where it’s held). A note about the name: You might not be familiar with Theakston, unless you’re a beer aficionado and/or a fan of NCIS. Theakston is a brewery based in Harrogate, and Old Peculier (yes, that’s how it’s spelled) is one of their beers. I’ve seen their CEO at the festival a couple of times now, and I have to tell you, the company seems to love the...

Kevin Hearne visits Minnesota Jun20

Kevin Hearne visits Minnesota

Tonight, Kevin Hearne made his first ever Minnesota appearance. Holding court in the meeting area of the Roseville Barnes & Noble store, Mr. Hearne kept the crowd (quick count put the eager fans at at least 70 or more!) enthralled during his reading and “Q and A” session. In town to promote SHATTERED, the latest volume of his long running IRON DRUID series, Mr. Hearne kept the tone light hearted and quick-witted. Quickly ditching the microphone because “it would only lead to me using my cheesy radio voice,” Mr. Hearne read a passage in a very passable Irish brogue. When answering many questions from the audience, the answer was often,...
