"Men of Mystery"

Thursday, September 28, 6 - 8 p.m., Oak View Room, Walnut Creek Library (1644 N. Broadway)

Men of Mystery will feature a lively panel discussion with Bay Area mystery writers Tony Broadbent, author of the Smoke series about a Cockney cat burglar in post-war London who is blackmailed into working for MI5; David Corbett, a former San Francisco Private Investigator turned crime writer, whose work has been praised by Lee Child, Michael Connelly, and more; and Kirk Russell, author of numerous thrillers and crime novels, and whose book Dead Game was named one of the top ten crime novels of 2005 by the American Library Association.

There will be a delicious array of hors d'oeuvres and desserts; a silent auction for four nights at an ocean view condo in Aptos; and a raffle featuring wine, restaurant gift cards, bags of books, and more. Further, the authors will be available for book signing after the discussion.

Tickets are $25 for general seating and $50 for priority seating. Priority seating is limited and includes a chocolate and wine gift bag valued at more than $40. Tickets are advance purchase only.
