The Dark Before Dawn

The Dark Before Dawn by Laurie Stevens is the first book in a gripping new mystery series.  This compelling psychological thriller kept me turning the pages from start to finish. Gabriel McRay is a homicide cop on the way out.  His personal problems have interfered with his job to the point that he has been told to resign. That changes when bodies start turning up with notes addressed to him.  As the case progresses, Gabriel realizes that the killer’s identity is hidden in memories that he buried due to childhood trauma, but now he must face them.

This story was great and and kept you guessing until the end.  Stevens did an amazing job creating complex characters.   It seemed people had their own issues to work through, along with solving the murders, making the entire story more realistic and believable. Steven’s also did an incredible job with her psychological profiling.  I was so intrigued by this aspect of the story. We recently had Laurie Steven’s in the store for a book signing and we have signed copies available for you to start a new mystery series.

Tucson Festival of Books 2014 Wrap-Up

We had another fabulous book festival this year.  Our booth had almost 50 authors for book signings and it was wonderful.  We would like to thank all of the amazing authors who join as well as all of our staff and volunteers.  Here is a brief look at who was at our booth.  Some of the authors were missed in pictures because sometimes things were just a little crazy.
