Fatal

June 2017 book selection

Fatal

by John Lescroart

June 7, 2017

Sometime in the 70's, my husband and I used to go to a favorite restaurant in Palo Alto to hear a guy named Johnny Capo And The Real Good Band play guitar.  I couldn't be happier to have reconnected with him years later here in Sacramento, where he is called John Lescroart and he is a very successful writer.  It gives me immense pleasure to let you know that he will be our guest at CapRadio Reads to discuss his latest bestselling novel, Fatal.  John has had a pretty exiting life since those old days in Palo Alto. He's had 19 books on The New York Times Bestseller List, he's written screenplays and recorded several albums.  All this while raising two great kids with his wife Lisa Sawyer.  We're glad he has the time to come and join us.  He'll be here, In Conversation with our own Donna Apidone on Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm in our Community Room.  Enjoy a glass of wine and some delicious appetizers, and have a listen to one of my oldest pals.

Walking withgreat way to catch up, exercise and share secrets, but be careful what you share.  In John Lescroart's latest novel, Fatal,  Kate Jameson and Her friend Beth Tilley get together regularly to walk, and it is during one of these walks Kate divulges she has become obsessed with a man she met at a dinner party.

Beth counsels Kate not to act on this obsession primarily because both she and the man are married with children. Of course Kate doesn’t listen and has a rendezvous.. Six months later this man is murdered. Who catches the case? Beth and her partner Ike, both detectives with the SFPD. I bet you can see where this story is going.  Please, come join John Lescroart when he is "In Conversation" with Donna Apidone, Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm in our Community Room.

I'm sure, since John Lescroart lives close by in Davis, we have a huge number of his fans in our audience.  John has been a member of our Community for many years, always giving his time and efforts to supporting great causes.  He has been a long time supporter of The Sacramento Public Library and even has a literary award that he gives, that has been named in honor of his father. I think it's about time we give back, so we have invited him to join us for one of our CapRadio Reads author nights.  He will be with us Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm in our Community Room.  He and Donna Apidone will be in conversation.  Join us for some wine, some terrific appetizers and a chance to ask John the questions you have always wanted to ask!

Come enjoy a one night stand with Author John Lescroart, "In Conversation" with Donna Apidone.  John Lescroart's latest book, a stand alone thriller, Fatal, starts out with a one night stand.  The rest of the book takes a look at the consequences, and there are many.  Lescroart introduces new characters to his readers in this book, and they are so enticing, I'm hoping we see some of them again.  Please join us for what is sure to be a fun evening.  Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm in our Community Room.

This is it! We at CapRadio Reads have a fantastic opportunity.  John Lescroart, author of too many to count New York Times Bestsellers, resident of Davis and all around good guy will be joining Donna Apidone "In Conversation" on June 13 at 6 pm in ourCommunity Room.  His latest book, Fatal, hit the Times list straight out of the gate.  

An explosive story of infidelity, danger, and moral ambiguity, John Lescroart’s latest thriller will excite and satisfy both his current and new fans. This is not the Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky book, that of course we all love.  This book is an opportunity for John to let loose and write an entirely different kind of book.  Don't worry, it's filled with drama and action, and of course the beloved scenes of San Francisco.  

Don't miss an opportunity to see the master in person and find out what's next in his exciting career. Please join us.
