Joining Books Inc. in Berkeley for an evening of thrills and chills with award-winning mystery writer Matt Coyle sharing his intriguing new novel, Wrong Light: Rick Cahill #5.

About Wrong LightPerfect for hard-boiled PI and Noir fans who like a tainted hero living by his own code.
Naomi Hendrix's sexy voice hovering over the radio waves isn't the only thing haunting the Southern California nights. A demented soul is stalking Naomi, hiding in the shadows of the night, waiting for the right moment to snatch her and fulfill a twisted fantasy.
When Naomi's radio station hires PI Rick Cahill to protect Naomi and track down the stalker, he discovers that Naomi is hiding secrets about her past that could help unmask the man. However, before Rick can extract the truth from Naomi, he is thrust into a missing person's case--an abduction he may have unwittingly caused. The investigating detective questions Rick's motives for getting involved and pressures him to stop meddling.
While Rick pursues Naomi's stalker and battles the police, evil ricochets from his own past and embroils Rick in a race to find the truth about an old nemesis. Is settling the score worth losing everything?

About A Reckoning in the Back CountryActing Police Chief Samuel Craddock investigates the murder of a visiting physician, whose mangled body is found in the woods.When Lewis Wilkins, a physician with a vacation home in Jarrett Creek, is attacked by vicious dogs, and several pet dogs in the area around Jarrett Creek disappear, Police Chief Samuel Craddock suspects that a dog fighting ring is operating in his territory. He has to tread carefully in his investigation, since lawmen who meddle in dog fighting put their lives at risk. The investigation is hampered because Wilkins is not a local.Craddock's focus on the investigation is thrown off by the appearance of a new woman in his life, as well as his accidental acquisition of a puppy. Digging deeper, Craddock discovers that the public face Wilkins presented was at odds with his private actions. A terrible mistake led to his disgrace as a physician, and far from being a stranger, he has ongoing acquaintances with a number of county residents who play fast and loose with the law.
