Where Lurks the Darkness?

 Duplicitous spouses or stranger danger, climbing the career ladder or gun stocking survivalism – where does peril actually lurk and hide? Join NYT bestselling crime novelist Alafair Burke (Where Are The Children Now? sequel to Mary Clark Higgins blockbuster suspense novel Where are the Children) and debut novelist Kashana Cauley (The Survivalists) as they discuss their suspenseful novels that upend notions of security and stability, and what rules need to be shattered for self-preservation.  Moderated by Tom Kretchmar, a family law attorney at Aronson Mayefsky & Sloan, LLP and the former co-chair of the Book Council of the National Book Foundation.
