Columbus: Charles Salzberg on Second Story Man
Join us at Book Culture on Columbus as Charles Salzberg discusses his book, Second Story Man, on Monday, April 30th at 7pm!
Is a serial criminal good at his job? Are the detectives who hunt him determined to win? How different are these three calculating personalities or is the only thing that sets them apart whether they operate inside or outside of the law?
In Charles Salzberg's critically-acclaimed literary thriller Devil in the Hole, detective Charlie Floyd was obsessed with catching an abominable murderer. Now not-so comfortably settled into being recently retired, he is abruptly drawn back into the game by Cuban-born Miami police detective Manny Perez, who is on a mission to catch a notoriously elusive thief. Knowing how attached Floyd can become to a suspect, Perez is going to enjoy watching him work in Salzberg's new crime novel, SECOND STORY MAN.
