Cara Black, Olen Steinhauer, Rhys Bower to Talk About Mystery Novels and Exotic Locales at Oakland Public Library
A mystery novel is a brilliant excuse to examine human foibles and mores. It is also an opportunity to explore far-flung places, both for the novel's characters and for the reader who avidly soaks up the atmosphere while turning pages to find out where the story will head next. On Wednesday, April 25, 2012, from 6 to 8pm, three best-selling local authors will discuss these intriguing topics at Oakland's Main Library, 125 14th Street. The event is called Mysterious Places: An Evening with Cara Black, Rhys Bowen, and Olen Steinhauer.
Cara Black will discuss her new mystery, Murder at the Lanterne Rouge. Black's heroine, the style-conscious sleuth Aimee Leduc, disentangles a complicated web of criminal intrigue while zipping through Paris' 20 arrondissements on her Vespa, leading the reader on an exhilarating tour of chic boulevards and seamy alleyways.
