The Sons of Suicide, survivors of the late Suicide Club of Farmers Market infame ("How come you guys never spend any money but take up a table for hours?") are at it again, coagulating at my favorite book store, Mysteries To Die For in Thousand Oaks, CA (about 50 miles from L.A.) at 11:30 on May 10th to help sell John Shannon's The Devils of Bakersfield. Crime fiction lovers in general and Shannon enthusiasts (how could you not be?) in particular are welcome to join us at MTDF, 2940 Thousand Oaks Blvd. Bring your wallet; they have lots of pens for signing.
Here's John, just north of Dick Lochte.
