Sallie Bissell, author of the critically acclaimed Mary Crow mysteries, will return to City Lights Bookstore to read from her latest installment, Deadliest of Sins on Friday, May 9th at 6:30 p.m.
Recently appointed special prosecutor Mary Crow is sent to rural county in North Carolina, to investigate a possible anti-gay conspiracy between a recent murder and a homophobic preacher. But what starts as an effort to curb hate-crimes turns into a nightmare of abuse and abduction. As Mary delves deeper into the community’s history, she uncovers menacing information about the infamous Highway 74, where people have either disappeared or been found dead. When she uncovers how it's all connected, Mary is forced into a deadly world of stolen innocence. And she may become the next victim . . .
Sallie splits her time between Nashville and Asheville. Deadliest of Sins is the sixth book in the Mary Crow series.
