Three Sisters in Crime, MP Cooley, Dana Fredsti, and Eileen Magill, will be at the Santa Clara (CA) Library on Sunday, August 2nd, from 2 to 4 PM to talk about their books, what it takes to be a published author in today’s market, and any other quirky question the moderator, Abby Normal, decides to spring on them.
If you have any questions for the authors, you can ask them at the event. If you’re too shy, you can e-mail your questions in advance to Abby at least one day in advance at email@example.com, and she’ll ask! (Please note “Author Question” in the subject line so the e-mail doesn’t accidentally get deleted).
Plague World, by Dana Fredsti
The thrilling conclusion of the zombie apocalypse begun in PLAGUE TOWNand continued in PLAGUE NATION! The zombie plague has gone airborne, and the conspiracy that began it all reaches the boiling point.
Having been ambushed in San Francisco, which is now fully engulfed in the zombie plague, Ashley and the wild cards must pursue the enemy to San Diego. There they will discover a splinter of their own organization, the Dolofónoi tou Zontanoús Nekroús, which seeks to weaponize the plague. But that isn’t the worst news. The plague has gone airborne, making it transferable without physical contract. It cannot be controlled by anyone, so reports of the zombie swarm are coming in from across the United States – and across the world.
Flame Out, by MP Cooley
June Lyons, the FBI-agent-turned-small-town-cop introduced in the acclaimed debut Ice Shear, must solve two connected cases whose roots stretch back decades—and touch the lives of those closest to her
As a police officer in the Rust Belt town of Hopewell Falls, New York, June Lyons keeps an eye on the abandoned factories that line the Mohawk River. On patrol she spots a slick of gasoline running across the parking lot of an old apparel factory; inside, an unconscious woman lies near smoldering piles of old fabric. The fire destroys the building down to its subbasements, and the badly burned woman June rescued is in a coma. No one knows who she is or how she got there.
Thirty years earlier, June’s father made a name for himself when he arrested the factory’s owner, Bernie Lawler, for killing his wife and child, though their bodies were never found. Sifting through the factory’s ruins, June and her partner, Dave Batko, discover a woman’s body sealed in a barrel. They’re sure that the body will be Luisa Lawler’s and her cold case file will finally be closed. But the body isn’t Bernie’s wife’s, and the discovery opens old wounds and cuts fresh ones, triggering a new cycle of violence and revenge that threatens to destroy her family and friends.
