Author Alex Segura appears at Books & Books on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 8:00 PM to sign his new novel Down the Darkest Street.
About the book:
Pete Fernandez should be dead. His life — professional and personal — is in ruins. His best friend is dead. His newspaper career is past tense. His ex is staying with him as her own marriage crumbles. On top of that, the former journalist finds himself in the eye of a dangerous storm; investigating a missing girl with an unexpected partner and inching closer and closer to a vicious, calculating killer cutting a swath of blood across Miami — while at the same time battling his own personal demons that refuse to be silenced.
Down the Darkest Street, the hard-boiled sequel to Alex Segura’s acclaimed debut, Silent City, tells a tale of redemption, survival and the sordid backstreets of Miami — while asking the question that many are too scared to answer: When faced with pure darkness, would you fold or fight?

PAUL CORNELL will be signing WHO KILLED SHERLOCK HOLMES and THIS DAMNED BAND (TP) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 19th May from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.
Who Killed Sherlock Holmes? is a great genre crossover injecting life into the crime procedural. Thrilling and gripping, and with a clever new twist on a much-loved character, this will appeal to a host of fans ranging from police procedurals to gothic, urban fantasy, to straight-up lovers of Sherlock and beyond. Quill and his team pursue a criminal genius, who lures them into a Sherlockian maze of too many clues and too much evidence, while also battling their own, and all too real, demons. It looks like the game is afoot…
And in This Damned Band, the biggest rock band in the world thought they were only pretending to worship Satan. As they record the documentary of what might be their final world tour, they discover the horrifying truth!
Paul Cornell has been Hugo-nominated for his work in TV, comics and prose, and is a BSFA award-winner for short fiction. He has also written some of Doctor Who’s best-loved episodes for the BBC, and has more recently written for the Sherlock-inspired TV show Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu.
