September 22nd, 3 PM

Join us as we celebrate the publication of What She Never Said – A Thriller, the second book in Catharine Riggs’ Santa Barbara Suspense series.

How much would you pay to keep a secret?

The 1% doesn’t do anything like the rest of us, including retire. But when the elderly guests of swanky Serenity Acres fall on hard times, they conveniently pass away. Could an Angel of Mercy—or an Angel of Greed—be behind the sudden deaths? A peek into a tony retirement community where the upscale residents will stop at nothing to have their secrets buried in a grave. 

Catharine Riggs lives and writes on California’s central coast. What She Never Said is the second novel in her Santa Barbara Suspense series. The first, What She Gave Away, was published by Thomas & Mercer in September of 2018. Riggs is a member of the International Thriller Writers, The Authors Guild, Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America. 


Ocean Vuong

On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family’s history that began before he was born and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known.


James Ellroy

Harry Hole is not in a good place. Rakel–the only woman he’s ever loved–has ended it with him, permanently. But things are about to get worse. When Harry wakes up the morning after a blackout, drunken night with blood that’s clearly not his own on his hands, it’s only the very beginning of what will be a waking nightmare the likes of which even he could never have imagined.

James Ellroy

A body is unearthed in Griffith Park. The cops tag it a routine dead-man job. They’re wrong.

There’s a murderous fire and a gold heist. There’s Fifth Column treason on American soil. There are homegrown Nazis, Commies, and race racketeers. There’s two dead cops in a dive of the jazz-club strip. And three men and one woman have a hot date with history.

We have signed copies!
