Griffin Bay Bookstore is Hosting Me This Saturday
From 2P until 4P, Griffin Bay Bookstore is Hosting Me This Saturday. I will be sitting just inside the door with my latest thriller, THE DEATH OF VULTURES.
Griffin Bay Bookstore is located at:
155 Spring Street, Friday Harbor, WA 98250
Open Every Day 10am-6pm
Griffin Bay Bookstore was established in 1979 in Friday Harbor. When I got to the island, eighteen years later, they were located on Second Street just a skip north from Spring Street. Laura Norris has owned the bookstore since 2007 and I’m super-excited to be Laura’s guest at her benchmark business on Spring Street, and to talk to her guests about my latest psychological thriller, which I’ve set in Friday Harbor.
In fact, most of my novels are set in and around the San Juan Islands. I just can’t help writing about this place, a setting rife with texture and sensuous detail.
Now, here’s a little about THE DEATH OF VULTURES…
Meg Storm has stepped in it. After becoming entangled within an industry as nefarious as it is criminal, she becomes swept under the riptide in a lurid world of drugs and drug money. With law enforcement at a loss about the island’s escalating trafficking of drugs, authorities opt to use unorthodox tactics. After her daughter, Lily, dies from an apparent heroin overdose, and then her husband, the same way, Meg has nothing left to lose. She transforms herself from housewife into fighting phenom. Will she become a victim, a vigilante, or both? For Meg, nothing is as it seems.
“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
