Laurie R King " Back to the Garden"
Laurie R King, author of the Mary Russell series, will be in to discuss her new standalone. This is a seated event. Doors open at 6:30.
Magnificent house, vast formal gardens, a golden family that shaped California, and a colorful past filled with artists now famous: the Gardener Estate was a twentieth century Eden. And now, just as the Estate prepares to move into a new future, restoration work on some of its art digs up a grim relic of the estate’s past: a human skull, hidden away for decades. Inspector Raquel Laing has her work cut out for her. Fifty years ago, the Estate’s young heir, Rob Gardener, turned his palatial home into a counterculture commune of peace, love, and equality. But that was also a time when serial killers preyed on innocents—monsters like The Highwayman, whose case has just surged back into the public eye.
