to discuss latest book Sept. 11
Author Patricia Skalka will discuss her newest award-winning novel, "Death in Cold Water" at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11 at the Rhinelander District Library, just in time for the football season.
According to a library press release, the book has a football tie-in. Below is a synopsis:
"On a bracing autumn day in Door County, a prominent philanthropist disappears. Is the elderly Gerald Sneider - known as "Mr. Packer" for his legendary support of Green Bay football - suffering from dementia, or just avoiding his greedy son? Is there a connection to threats against the National Football League? As tourists flood the peninsula for the fall colors, Sheriff Dave Cubiak's search for Sneider is stymied by the FBI. When human bones wash up on the Lake Michigan shore, the sheriff has more than a missing man to worry about. With the media demanding answers and two puzzles to solve, Cubiak must follow his instincts down a trail of half-remembered rumors and local history to discover the shocking truth."
Skalka is the author of "Death Stalks Door County," "Death at Gills Rock," and "Death in Cold Water," the first three books in the popular Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery series. She lives in Chicago and Door County. "Death in Cold Water" is the winner of the Edna Ferber Fiction Book Award, presented by the Council for Wisconsin Writers.
Skalka will sign books following the event, sponsored in part by the Northern Arts Council. Refreshments provided by the Rhinelander District Library Friends of the Library.
