Only the Best Places

The Famous Author may not see his novel in too many big chain stores, but by golly, he winds up getting hand sold in some fancy independents. Last month it was Murder by the Book in Houston. This week, its Mysterious Bookshop in New York City, maybe the most famous mystery book shop in the world. Manager Sally Owen asked TFA to sign ten hardbacks for her, and this week she pumped them online. Right under Janet Evanovich.

who will discuss his new book and sign.
Light refreshments will be served.
John Connolly was here this week signing the US edition of The Reapers. The story concentrates on Louis and Angel, the men who in the past have assisted troubled detective Charlie Parker. One of Connolly?s best, and that?s high praise. $26.00

Hell?s Gate by Richard E. Crabbe is set in New York in 1904. Detective Mike Braddock must deal with river piracy and gang wars all set against the backdrop of "the greatest tragedy to strike New York until 9/11." That would be the sinking of The General Slocum which caught fire in New York?s East River killing more than 1,000. $24.95

Janet Evanovich stopped by to sign Fearless Fourteen, her latest Stephanie Plum novel. A Crime Collector?s Club Selection. $27.95

Big Money by Jack Getze is the second book featuring Austin Carr, suspended stockbroker. This time Austin is the prize in a war between two crime crews and a powerful state investigator. He also stumbles into the lives of three women, one of whom is a killer. $28.95

Notice I'm getting the same space as TFA.
