James Ziskin will be signing Heart of Stone, a new Ellie Stone Mystery.
This is set in the Adirondacks and has the usual set of clues and red herrings.
"Ziskin is masterful with his 1960s nostalgic descriptions and his portrayal of the difficulties for women in the workplace during that era. His smart and sassy protagonist, Ellie Stone, is far from perfect. Ellie is, however, liberated, impulsive, and has a personality with heart. The plot is solid with plenty of twist and turns and a powerful ending that will leave readers wanting more." —Examiner
"Ellie is a refreshing, riotously funny amateur sleuth. Spot-on language and perceptions of the era are a plus." —Publishers Weekly
