Join acclaimed mystery writer Susan Alice Bickford for a Book Launch celebrating her gripping new work of suspense, Dread of Winter.

"There's so much to love in Susan Bickford's newest novel, Dread of Winter a profound sense of place, the visceral evocation of a bitter winter's cold, a dead-on depiction of the pit of despair that is the opioid epidemic, and language so beautiful on the page it'll give you goosebumps. I'm a newcomer to Bickford's work, but I'm putting her on my list of must-read authors. You should, too."
--William Kent Krueger


The remote town of Oriska, New York, hasn't been home for Sydney Lucerno for thirteen years. She's escaped the creeping addictions and long-simmering anger that are as much a part of the landscape as the bitter cold. But when she gets the call that her mother is dying, every secret and fear she left behind is waiting to welcome her back.

Two days later, her mother's lover is dead too. And Sydney's sworn to protect a half-sister she never knew she had, a prickly teenager named Maude, with an opiate habit and a bad-news family. But more lies and feuds are poised to spring from every once-familiar corner. The predators Sydney thought she'd escaped are threatening both her and Maude. To get free, Sydney will have to discover the truth about what happened when she left--and decide what should stay buried, deep in the
unforgiving snow . . .

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
