Join us in welcoming local author Tom Collins for a discussion and signing of his book The Claret Murders, the newest installment of the Mark Rollins adventures. For a quick word from the author, check out this short youtube video!
Set behind the backdrop of the flood of 2010, “The Claret Murders”, the fourth installment in The Mark Rollins Adventures, follows main character, Mark Rollins, as he becomes engulfed in the life of Ann Sims, a beautiful young lawyer who has gotten herself in over her head. It evolves into a story of love gone wrong, featuring an old estate and a big secret. With a fantastic blend of greed, lust, mystery and crime, Collins masters the art of capturing readers’ attention, providing ‘edge-of-your-seat’ suspense that keeps the pages turning until the very end.
Foreword Reviews gave The Claret Murders four stars and Kirkus Review, an authoritative voice in book discovery for almost 80 years called “The Claret Murders,” a “fun and atmospheric Southern Murder Mystery.” Kirkus states “when the great cache of wine enters the picture and then a roaring storm comes down to swamp the landscape and the cellar, Collins deftly moves the story forward, and frankly, the reader really wants to know what happens to the wine more than Ann, Paul and the rest of the no-goods. Collins has a nice way of evoking Tennessee, its pace and proprieties and politics, from the spicy Zumba rhythms of a local club to the breeching banks of the Cumberland River.”
