MysteryPeople Presents: C.J. BOX (Stone Cold) & DAVID HANSARD (One Minute Gone)

C. J. Box will be joined at this event by DAVID HANSARD, author of One Minute Gone

"David Hansard's propulsive One Minute Gone blasts right out of the chute and never stops bucking until the very last page. It crackles with wry wit, wisdom, and an insider's sense of The City—New York, that is—that reminded me of a cross between a real estate version of Serpico crossed with Bonfire of the Vanities. Amidst the non-stop action is a bittersweet and very real portrayal of a family blown apart by mental illness, but saved by the wisecracking virtue of Porter Hall—the bulldog protagonist who won't let go of the case or his loved ones."  C.

About Stone ColdThe electrifying new Joe Pickett novel from the bestselling author. Everything about the man is a mystery: the massive ranch in the remote Black Hills of Wyoming that nobody ever visits, the women who live with him, the secret philanthropies, the private airstrip, the sudden disappearances. And especially the persistent rumors that the man's wealth comes from killing people. Joe Pickett, still officially a game warden but now mostly a troubleshooter for the governor, is assigned to find out what the truth is, but he discovers a lot more than he'd bargained for. There are two other men living up at that ranch. One is a stone-cold killer who takes an instant dislike to Joe. The other is new--but Joe knows him all too well. The first man doesn't frighten Joe. The second is another story entirely.

About One Minute GonePorter Hall has a nice life, but someone wants to destroy it. He is financially secure, though not rich by Manhattan standards, and as the single father of six-year-old twins his days are full, but routine. Until he knows who wants to take him down, and why, he can't stop them. As he begins to dig, he realizes he is up against wealth and power, and even his best efforts may be futile. ONE MINUTE GONE is the first novel in the Porter Hall urban noir thriller series.
