Puja Guha and Reed Farrel Coleman in Conversation!
Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome international bestselling author of The Ahirman Legacy series Puja Guha and Reed Farrel Coleman, the author continuing Robert B. Parker's Jesse Stone series! We'll be celebrating their latest novels, Sirens of Memory and The Bitterest Pill. They'll be chatting about crime writing on Wednesday, July 14th at 6pm MT. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.
In Sirens of Memory, Mariam flees an abusive marriage as the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait begins. Twenty-five years later, she attends an event commemorating the anniversary of the invasion at the Kuwaiti embassy. Also in attendance is her husband, miraculously still alive, who had assumed his wife was killed in the invasion decades before. Angry and obsessed, he begins planning his revenge. The confrontation that follows forces Mariam to confront her past as a victim and decide who she really is, once and for all.
In The Bitterest Pill, a popular high school cheerleader dies of a suspected heroin overdose, and it becomes clear that the opioid epidemic has spread even to the idyllic town of Paradise. It will be up to Police Chief Jesse Stone to unravel the supply chain and unmask the criminals behind it, and the investigation has a clear epicenter: Paradise High School. But when it comes to drugs, the very people Jesse is trying to protect are often those with the most to lose. As he digs deeper into the case, he finds himself battling self-interested administrators, reluctant teachers, distrustful schoolkids, and overprotective parents...and at the end of the line are the true bad guys, the ones with a lucrative business they'd kill to protect.
