Coffee & Crime author breakfast , starting at 10 am
Scots author Peter May will return to MLB on Saturday, May 22, 2010 at 10 am for a Coffee & Crime author breakfast. He'll talk about and sign the fourth of his Enzo MacLeod mysteries, Freeze Frame as well as the standalone thriller Virtually Dead.
Peter is launched his breezy Enzo MacLeod series with Dry Bones. He introduces Enzo Macleod, a Scottish forensic bioligist living in Toulouse. He takes on a bet that using his scientific method he can deduce the fate of a high-ranking French diplomat who disappeared ten years earlier. Enzo follows a series of clues that take him from the sewers of Paris to Germany.
In Freeze Frame, Enzo is taken to a remote island off the coast of Brittany where he seeks clues in another cold-case murder.
Here's what the critics have to say:
"The author of the much acclaimed "China Thrillers" surpasses himself here in misdirection, placing clues in plain sight and leaving the reader anticipating the fifth entry in this outstanding series." Library Journal (starred review)
"May’s excellent fourth Enzo McLeod mystery... With its intricate plot, compelling characters, and bombshell denouement, this unsettling Enzo Files installment is a must-read." Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"The formula is a neat one, going back to the golden age of detective fiction... Although May obviously (and justifiably) prides himself on his grasp of the plot mechanics, something must be said for his vivid settings, which remove the story from the library and send it out into the wide, wide world." New York Times
Virtually Dead is a standalone thriller that uses the virtual world of Second Life as a the setting for an intense hunt for a serial killer.
Peter is also the author of a series of China Thrillers featuring American pathologist Margaret Campbell and Beijing detective Li Yan, introduced in The Firemaker.
The Coffee & Crime author breakfast begins at 10 am and includes continental breakfast along with talk and signing by the author. Cost is $5 and reservations are necessary.
