COLORADO MYSTERY AUTHOR VISITS PAGE ONE 3:00 PM SUNDAY, JULY 16
Colorado author Francine Mathews, who also writes as Stephanie Barron, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, July 16, to talk about and sign her newest mystery novel, "Death on Nantucket: Merry Folger Nantucket Mystery Book 5."
Her fifth Folger Nantucket effort is described as such: "Spencer Murphy is a national treasure. A famous Vietnam War correspondent who escaped captivity in Southeast Asia, he made a fortune off of his books and television appearances. But Spence is growing forgetful with age; he’s started to wander and even fails to come home one night. When a body is discovered at Step Above, the sprawling Murphy house near Steps Beach, Nantucket police detective Meredith Folger is called in to investigate. The timing couldn’t be worse: It’s the Fourth of July, and tourists are arriving in droves to celebrate on Nantucket’s beaches, so the police force is spread thin. On top of that Merry is planning her wedding to cranberry farmer Peter Mason, and her new boss, an ex-Chicago police chief with an aggressive management strategy, seems to be trying to force her to quit. Merry can’t conclude the Murphy investigation quickly enough for him. As she grapples with a family of unreliable storytellers—some incapable of recalling the past, and others determined that it never be known—she suspects that the truth may be forever out of reach, trapped in the failing brain of a man whose whole life may be a lie."
Mathews was born in Binghamton, NY, the last of six girls. She attended Princeton and Stanford Universities, where she studied history, before going on to work as an intelligence analyst at the CIA. She wrote her first book in 1992 and left the Agency a year later. Since then, she has written 27 books, including four previous novels in the Merry Folger series ("Death in the Off-Season," "Death in Rough Water," "Death in a Mood Indigo," and "Death in a Cold Hard Light") as well as the nationally bestselling "Being a Jane Austen" mystery series, which she writes under the pen name Stephanie Barron. She lives and works in Denver, CO.
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 Mathews event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
