Crimes and Misdemeanors

A Texas ranger searches for a missing child and encounters forces of white supremacy. A journalist defies the warnings of police and investigates the murder of a woman with whom he had a one-night stand. And, in a new collection, writers use fiction to explore nicotine and addiction. Don’t miss best-selling author Lee Child (The Nicotine Chronicles, editor), award-winning novelist Michael Connelly (Fair Warning), and Edgar Award–winning author Attica Locke (Heaven, My Home) for a discussion about mysteries, crime fiction, and the space between guilt and innocence. Moderated by Molly Odintz, senior editor of CrimeReads.
