Book Launch Party
Wednesday, November 5th ~ 7:00 pm
Join in as we celebrate the release of one of our favorite PacNW author's newest book, My Sister's Grave, a thrilling mystery about a woman's search for the truth behind the death of her sister. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy Crosswhite became a homcide detective with the Seattle PD and has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah's disappearance and the murder trial that followed. Was the man condemned for Sarah's murder truly the guilty party? When Sarah's remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she's been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past and open the door to deadly danger.
Bob is the author to five previous mysteries featuring David Sloane including Jury Master, a stand-alone mystery, DamageControl and one nonfiction, The Cyanide Canary.
We welcome you to an enjoyable and interesting evening with a talented, informed and all around great guy who happens to write intriguing mysteries.
