Windfall Is Here!
The wait is over - Windfall has been printed and is being shipped to stores as we speak. You're all invited to my launch party at Once Upon a Crime, 604 W. 26th Street, Minneapolis, on Saturday, October 3rd, from 12-2 p.m.
To accommodate those of you in the St. Paul area, I'm holding a special "unofficial" launch, as I always have, at Lake Country Booksellers, 4766 Washington Square, White Bear Lake, on Friday, October 2nd, from 10:00 a.m. - noon. When you come, check out the White Bear Farmer's Market.
So what is Windfall about? It's the next story in the Pen Wilkinson series, begun in Downfall. Here's the description:
Paraplegic young prosecutor Pen Wilkinson prepares to bring a corrupt congressman to justice in the first big trial of her career, only to find the stakes much higher than she imagined. Just before trial, Pen’s star witness disappears—either killed or driven into hiding by an unknown, terrifying form of coercion. As Pen searches across the country for the missing witness, she uncovers a massive web of corporate and political crime that goes far beyond the case she is prosecuting. With the trial date fast approaching, Pen’s search is complicated by the astonishing arrest of her boyfriend, banker James Carter, for the murder of his former lover. As Pen presses on, trying to prosecute her case while exonerating her friend, the focus of the murder investigation shifts from Carter to another suspect with a strong motive: Pen herself.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press recommended Windfall in its Fall Arts Guide, calling Pen ". . . one of the most interesting characters in crime fiction."
