Join us TUESDAY, APRIL 27 for an evening with author Michael Harvey at 7pm
Harvey signs The Third Rail (Knopf $24.95) The ferocious new novel from the author of The Chicago Way ("A major new voice"-Michael Connelly) and The Fifth Floor finds Michael Harvey at the top of his game in an expertly plotted, impossible to put down thriller set in Chicago's public transit system.
Harvey's tough talking, Aeschylus-quoting, former Irish cop turned PI, Michael Kelly, is back in a sizzling murder mystery that pits him against a merciless sniper on the loose. After witnessing a shooting on an L platform - and receiving a phone call from the killer himself - Kelly is drawn toward a murderer with an unnerving link to his own past, to a crime he witnessed as a child, and to the consequences it had on his relationship with his father, a subject Kelly would prefer to leave unexamined. But when his girlfriend - the gorgeous Chicago judge Rachel Swenson - is abducted, Kelly has no choice but to find the killer by excavating his own stormy past.
Stylish, sophisticated, edge-of-your-seat suspense from a new modern master.
