THE BARBARY MARK – Talk & Signing for her new Historical Mystery
After a shipwreck, Nonie Rafferty washes up on the shore of Algiers, where the slave traders look to sell the pretty Irishwoman—or worse. She must come up with a tale to save herself—and fast—before anyone discovers the true reason she sailed to this misbegotten corner of the world, or the true reason she was wearing a priceless strand of pearls, when she was rescued.

Saturday, August 26, 6:00 p.m. – T. Jefferson Parker
Roland Ford—once a Marine, then a cop, now a private investigator—is good at finding people. But when he’s asked to locate Air Force veteran Clay Hickman, he’s drawn into something deep and dark. He knows the weight of war and the nightmare of indescribable personal pain. But now a job has become a life-and-death obsession for Ford with chilling questions about truth, justice, and the American way.

“A San Diego P.I. and veteran of the Gulf War takes a missing-person case that plunges him into a maddening mystery. The unrelenting suspense and multiple dangers in his quest ultimately reveal that he is seeking nothing less than love lost and redemption of his own soul.” Joseph Wambaugh
