Hilary Davidson & Brad Parks: April 3

Join Mystery Readers NorCal for a Literary Salon in Berkeley (CA) on Tuesday, April 3, with Award Winning Crime Fiction authors Hilary Davidson & Brad Parks. 7 p.m. Comment below for Directions and RSVP. Be sure and leave your email.

Hilary Davidson's debut novel, The Damage Done, won the 2011 Anthony Award for Best First Novel, and the Crimespree Award for Best First Novel. (The book was also a finalist for the Macavity Award for Best First Mystery, and the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel).  The Next One to Fall takes place three months after the events of The Damage Done, as travel writer Lily Moore and her companion visit Peru, arriving at Machu Picchu just as a tourist falls and dies. Lily becomes increasingly convinced that the death was no accident.

Brad Parks' debut, Faces of the Gone, won the Nero Award for Best American Mystery and the Shamus Award for Best First Mystery. Brad Parks' new mystery is The Girl Next Door: Reading his own paper’s obituaries, Carter Ross comes across a woman who died in a hit-and-run while delivering copies of that very paper, the Eagle-Examiner. Struck by the opportunity to write a heroic piece about an everyday woman killed too young, he heads to her wake to gather tributes and anecdotes. It’s the last place Carter expects to find controversy — was the accident an accident at all?
