Dear %%First Name%%,
Please join us if you can for a Coffee & Crime author breakfast with the talented Robert Greer on Saturday, October 23 at 10 am. He'll be here with First of State which is the latest of his novels to feature Denver bail bondsman C.J. Floyd. Interestingly, the new book is actually a prequel which takes place in the '70s when Floyd, recently returned from Viet Nam, befriends a WW II vet who in turn helps Floyd with his PTSD symptoms. The murder of this vet puts Floyd on the path of investigation and his eventual career.

We're happy to announce that with the assistance of our cadre of volunteer proofreaders, The Comma-kaze Squad, we've just uploaded a new and much improved version of the October-November News to the website.
You can dowload this edition of the News and print it if you wish. Just remember to use the Adobe Reader print function rather than printing the page in your browser.
If you're still getting a printed copy in the mail, they went out on Wednesday.
My thanks, as always, to our volunteers for helping to make this issue of the News even better.
We have the rare pleasure of welcoming a talented new writer to our store on Wednesday, October 20 at 7 pm. Stuart Neville, a native of Belfast, will give a talk and sign copies of his second novel, Collusion, a sequel to Ghosts of Belfast. Neville's crime novels are set in present day Northern Ireland where open warfare has been replaced by peace but they deal with the many unresolved issues that are the legacy of years of deadly conflict.
Please give us a call or reply to this email if you can join us for an evening that we believe will be both fascinating and informative.
