New York Times bestselling author Ron Franscell lives in Placitas and he’s kicking off a regional book tour for his new mystery DEAF ROW with a free book talk and signing event at his hometown library 2-4pm March 11. All books sold will benefit the library.
DEAF ROW is Franscell’s 19th book, but his first fiction in more than 20 years. The story: Retired from a Denver homicide beat to a small Colorado mountain town, ex-detective Woodrow “Mountain” Bell yearns only to fade away. And when he stumbles across a long-forgotten, unsolved child murder, his first impulse is to let it lie … but he can’t. Without help from ambivalent local cops, Bell must overcome the obstacles of time, age, a lack of police resources—and his own personal flaws—by calling upon the unique skills of the end-of-the-road codgers he meets for coffee every morning—a club of old guys who call themselves Deaf Row. Soon, this mottled crew finds itself on a collision course with a serial butcher.
