Coffee & Crime: Eliot Pattison
May 19 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
“Pattison has few peers when it comes to integrating historical events into a complex but plausible whodunit plot.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred and Boxed Review
“This fifth entry in Pattison’s Bone Rattler series advances McCallum’s personal life as it exhibits the seamless blend of fiction and history that distinguishes this fine series. A timely reminder, as well, of what liberty meant to our forebears.”
When a ship arriving from London explodes in Boston Harbor, both the peace of the colonial city and Duncan McCallum’s life are shattered. Summoned by his new friend John Hancock to a beach awash with the bodies of the victims, Duncan discovers that the ship was deliberately sabotaged, apparently to cover the theft of a secret document being carried to the Sons of Liberty. Duncan relentlessly pursues the truth, only to be falsely charged with treason and murder. To escape the hangman’s noose and restore his honor, Duncan has no choice but to follow a northbound trail of violence and deception while being relentlessly hounded by bountymen and vengeful soldiers. The fifth entry in Eliot Pattison’s Bone Rattler series follows the exiled Scotsman along a tortuous path that will lead him to the American Revolution.
ELIOT PATTISON is the author of The Skull Mantra, winner of an Edgar Award and finalist for the Gold Dagger; as well as Water Touching Stone, Bone Mountain, Beautiful Ghosts, Prayer of the Dragon, Bone Rattler, The Lord of Death, Eye of the Raven, and, most recently, Original Death. Pattison resides in rural Pennsylvania with his wife, three children, two horses, and two dogs on a colonial-era farm. Find more at eliotpattison.com.
