River of Darkness book cover

Tuesday, December 8 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm: River of Darkness, by Rennie Airth

Upon its original publicaiton, River of Darkness awed readers who look for intelligent, well-plotted psychological mysteries. This "fine, frightening piece of work" (Kirkus Reviews) introduces inspector John Madden who, in the years following World War I, is sent to a small village to investigate a particularly gruesom attack. The local police dismiss the slaughter as a botched robbery, but Madden detects the signs of a madman at work. With the help of Dr. Helen Blackwell, who introduces him to the latest developments in criminal psychology, Madden sets out to identify and capture the killer, even as the murderer sets his sights on his next innocent victims.

Benefit of the Doubt book cover

Tuesday, January 12, 2016 1:30 to 2:30pm: Benefit of the Doubt, by Neal Griffin

A visionary, scathing, supremely effective peek into the darkness that permeates small town Americana. Drawn in vibrant colors upon an ambitious canvas, this major debut is destined to take its place alongside the work of Robert Parker, C.J. Box, and Harlan Coben when it comes to unrelenting suspense and wondrously staged, multi-layered construction. - Jon Land, bestselling author of "Strong Rain Falling" and "The Tenth Circle".
