“With an early focus on the possible murderers, Ellis’ (third) series entry is more thriller than mystery. The author works this to great effect as the story reveals the burden of unearthing evidence. Ellis generates an impressive amount of suspense. A swift pace. Solid entertainment.”
Ellis will be in conversation with Peg North who is a member of the Meet The Author Committee of Pequot Library, has been a Southport resident with her family for over 40 years and comes from a career in marketing. Interestingly, she and Tim Cole both worked for the same magazine years ago.
