Press Release:

Books Inc. proudly present New York Times-bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey in celebration of his latest romantic adventure One Night on Thursday, April 23rd from 7:00 – 9:00 pm!

For one night, a couple checks in to an upscale hotel. The pair seem unlikely companions, from opposing strata of society, but their attraction is palpable to all who observe them–or overhear their cries of passion. In the course of twelve hours, con games, erotic interludes, jealousy, violence, and murder swirl around them. Will they part ways in bliss, in sorrow, or in death?

RSVP on Facebook!
