The author talks about and signs his fourth mystery novel, Midnight Blues: Gabe McKenna Book 4.



Robert D. Kidera, former academic, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, October 28, to talk about and sign his fourth mystery novel, "Midnight Blues: Gabe McKenna Book 4."

The book is described as such: "What kind of person would harm a child? Neophyte P.I. Gabe McKenna and his buddy The Onion find out the hard way, when their plan to ransom a kidnapped boy goes terribly wrong. Finding themselves in a battle against international human traffickers, they rely on the help of unlikely friends in a race against time to rescue dozens of enslaved young victims. In a final, deadly showdown at a New Mexico ghost town, Gabe faces his ultimate challenge. How high a price is he willing to pay? Can he risk death and his own conscience to save the innocent without turning into his enemy?"

“‘Midnight Blues’ takes its readers on a remarkable journey filled with chilling evil, fiery valor, and heart-racing suspense. Author Robert Kidera writes with energy, passion and a beautiful appreciation for the power of language. At the end — which came too soon — I felt as though I had been holding my breath on a rollercoaster. Well done and highly recommended.” — Anne Hillerman, author of the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito mysteries.

Kidera’s debut novel, “Red Gold,” received the Tony Hillerman Award for Best Fiction of 2015, and won Best Mystery of 2015, and Best eBook at the New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. “Red Gold” is the first novel in the Gabe McKenna Mystery series. After an early fling in the motion picture industry, and a long and successful career in academia, Kidera retired in 2010. With his desire to play major league baseball no longer a realistic dream, he chose to fulfill his other lifelong ambition and became a writer. He is a member of Southwest Writers, Sisters in Crime, and the International Thriller Writers organizations. The author lives in Albuquerque with his wife Annette and two cats. He has two daughters, a grandson and granddaughter.

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 Kidera event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit
