6 p.m., Book release event for co-authors Lou Kilzer and Mark Boyden, to celebrate the release of their new book, "Fatal Seductions," the second in the Sally Will series. This event is free and open to all; no reservations needed.
Sally is a young reporter for the Chicago Tribune stationed in Denver. She is prone to panic attacks, smokes thin black cigars and drinks a little too much Dewars. But she manages to track down hit men, Russian Mafia and American Cosa Nostra bosses.
In "Fatal Seductions," she investigates the death of a Denver-based billionaire CEO of a major defense contractor, killed by Sally's nemesis, Katya, a green-eyed Russian professional killer, probably the most prolific in the world. The story takes us from Denver to Russia, North and South Korea, and finally to Costa Rica.
Sally always breaks journalistic rules when the stakes are high enough. She listens to the words of her dead father as she makes some of her most critical decisions.
The book includes a life-or-death submarine chase. The authors worked with Commander William "Jerry" Holland, Rear Admiral (Rtd.) of the U.S. Submarine Fleet, on the submarine scenes.
The first book in the series, titled "Fatal Redemption," was dedicated to friends at the Denver Press Club and won these first-place awards: Winner, North West Book Festival, General Fiction; Winner, Beverly Hills Book Awards, Crime Fiction; and Winner, IRDA Awards, Mystery/Suspense.
