FlyerALBQUERQUE MYSTERY AUTHOR VISITS PAGE ONE 3:00 PM SUNDAY, AUGUST 20

Albuquerque author Barbara J. Langner will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, August 20, to talk about and sign her newest mystery novel, "The Chocolate Murder."

The book is described as such: "The chocolate-covered body looks like the creation of a giant Easter bunny. Peering into the bakery window, Monica Walters sees a woman slathered with chocolate sprawled on the floor in front of the glass cases filled with pastries. Since Monica doesn't see oozing blood or fragments of brain tissue, she remains calm and calls the police. This bizarre murder sparks a new, moneymaking idea for the bakery's owner. He sells cakes topped with tiny dolls covered in chocolate frosting for potlucks, showers, and hostess gifts. Monica discovers the victim entertained male guests in the wee hours while she baked. The boss says sex never interfered with her professional duties. She never burned a cake. When Monica investigates the boyfriends, none has the earmarks of a murderous loony. Unless, of course, he's a good actor."

Langner lives in Albuquerque's north valley in an old house with a gnarled cottonwood tree frequented by a flock of vultures. The birds entertain her dog, aggravate her husband, and inspire the writer's macabre interest in murder. Her previous books are "The Detectives Who Loved Beethoven," "The Detectives Who Loved Shakespeare," and "The Detectives Who Loved Opera."

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Langner event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
