I’m excited that THE DEATH OF VULTURES has two book launch parties closing in! The first launch party for my latest novel this month will be online and the second in person.
The first book launch party will be held this Saturday, September 15th, online on Facebook. CLICK HERE for details. During this launch I will be posting pics of vultures and deer, the book trailer for THE DEATH OF VULTURES, some short videos, an eBook giveaway, and 10 print copies of signed Advanced Reader Copies. I’ll also be going “live” so that I can chat with my friends on Facebook who attend the party.
The second book launch party will be held Saturday, September 22nd, from 2P until 4P at our local bookstore, Griffin Bay Bookstore in Friday Harbor. I’m thrilled to be hosted by Laura Norris and the staff at Griffin Bay. You should stop by and chat me up and while you’re there get a latte or a cappuccino. Griffin Bay Bookstore makes a mean cup of Joe. But you might want to buy a copy of THE DEATH OF VULTURES beforehand by calling Griffin Bay Bookstore directly.

I hope you can join me at either or both of the launches. We’re going to have fun with some other surprise giveaways! Shh, don’t tell anyone but during the online launch, Susan will be giving away three hours of in-your-face Skype writing instruction or a chat with your book club about THE DEATH OF VULTURES. It’s your pick.

“I’m still reeling after finishing Susan Wingate’s latest, THE DEATH OF VULTURES. Brilliantly written, here is a tale that grips you by the throat from the opening prologue to the gut-punch of an ending. Both tender and brutal, intelligent and visceral, each page carries a reader further down a harrowing path to a conclusion both inevitable yet also shocking. This novel will leave an indelible mark on your soul. Don’t miss it.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Demon Crown
“In THE DEATH OF VULTURES, bestselling author Susan Wingate delivers a spellbinding page-turner. Harrowing and heartbreaking, this is the story of a grief-stricken mother’s tenacity in her efforts to bring to justice the monsters responsible for her daughter’s drug overdose. Meg Storm is a heroine you can really root for. Once you pick up this riveting thriller, you won’t want to put it down.”
—Kevin O’Brien, New York Times bestselling author
“The author writes with a shrewd, confident style; the characters’ experiences are often perceptible to readers. For example, Meg endures an emotional reaction as physical anguish: “This new pain was like a shot to the chest, radiating down and dark, through the soles of her feet… Violence is stark but fleeting, as the profound tale is more about loss than revenge. A bleak but undeniably affecting family tale.”
—Kirkus Reviews, August 2, 2018
“Susan Wingate is guilty. She caused me to lose a full night’s sleep. That’s how engrossing her newest novel, The Death of Vultures, is. Like an onion, the layers keep peeling away revealing new twists and turns that keep you glued to the page. Her writing is impeccable and the world she creates, while at times as tragic as a car wreck, is both haunting and impossible to ignore.”
—New York Times and USA Today Thriller Award winning author, Vincent Zandri
“Grief, guilt, and punishment for crimes walk closely together in an evolving story which brings both Meg and her readers on the brink of disaster as reconciliation and recovery remain elusive goals for many of the characters. The result is a riveting, action-packed inspection of one woman’s life gone awry as she sets out to rescue others only to come full-circle to discover her own strength and ability to survive.”
—D. Donovan, Senior Book Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“When the book starts out with the death of her daughter, you’d think things couldn’t get much worse for Meg—but they do. More deaths, manipulation, revenge, and redemption all play important roles in Susan Wingate’s fast-paced masterpiece THE DEATH OF VULTURES. Susan’s deftly controlled writing style has the reader feeling everything the character goes through—which is exhausting and wonderful.”
—Terry Persun, Award Winning & Amazon Bestselling Novelist
“In the tradition of GONE GIRL, Susan Wingate’s THE DEATH OF VULTURES is both layered and nuanced. Like a striptease. the story unwinds itself, building one fear above the other. She has created a world both surreal and REAL, where regrets don’t just swallow you whole… They KILL you.”
