Weinberger’s detective returns in second mystery
He’s back. Amos Parisman, the semi-retired L.A. investigator who solved the murder of a popular rabbi in “An Old Man’s Game,” returns this fall to track down a missing singer whose disappearance leaves a wake of dead bodies.
Andy Weinberger’s mystery series chalks up its second title, “Reason to Kill,” and the Readers’ Bookstore owner will Zoom into your home computer to discuss it on Tuesday, Sept. 22. The book, like its predecessor, is tightly plotted, subtly witty, and thoughtful, and Weinberger has said there’s a third book coming next year. But for now, Parisman finds drawn into himself in the dangerous and seductive world of the Los Angeles klezmer music scene.
But let him tell you that, at the Sept. 22 Zoom chat, beginning at 7 p.m. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
If your interest is appropriately stimulated, call or go to Readers’ Books (939-1779, 130 E. Napa St.) and order up a copy, where they are currently in stock. Contactless pickup in the garden behind the store is available, and Weinberger has set aside both Friday and Saturday afternoon, Sept. 25 and 26, to autograph copies of the book from 3 to 5 p.m. Enter the garden through the marked door from the parking lot behind the Sebastiani Theater.
