[Please note the location of this program has changed; it will be outside in the library's Secret Garden.] We welcome back author Tim O'Mara to talk about "Dead Red" the third book in his gritty, street-wise crime series featuring Raymond Donne, a "beautifully flawed Brooklyn hero." This time, the schoolteacher gets drawn into the tangled affairs of an old friend who is a former cop and ex-Marine who served in Iraq. The series has been widely praised for the humanity of the characters and the Brooklyn atmosphere which is said to be "strong enough to bottle." Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
