 Talk & Signing

Sheila Lowe's newest Claudia Rose novel, WRITTEN OFF has the handwriting expert hunting down a manuscript about convicted female serial killer, Roxanne Becker. The manuscript, written by Professor Maynard, who was murdered, exposes a shocking secret and Claudia finds herself swept up in the mystery of Madeleine’s life—and death.

Patricia Smiley's second Davie Richards novel, OUTSIDE THE WIRE takes the LAPD Homicide Detective to the scene of a murdered, retired U.S. Army Ranger.  More victims follow and in the race to save the next one Richards is faced with a shocking twist that pushes her to the edge, testing the bonds of brotherhood and friendship.   "...Smiley's second LAPD entry moves the plot as deftly as she moves the reader, with lots of action and just enough heart."    —Kirkus
