Doudera launches latest at Cappy’s

Mar 31, 2014

Camden — A book release party for local crime author Vicki Doudera’s two latest books will be held Thursday, April 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Crow’s Nest of Cappy’s Chowder House, 1 Main St./Route 1.

Doudera’s brand-new Darby Farr Mystery, “Deal Killer,” and is the fifth in her series and she will be happy to sign copies of what Kirkus Reviews calls a twisty mystery, with plenty of suspects and a touch of romance, inspired by a true real estate transaction.

Darby heads to New York City for what is supposed to be a joyous reunion with Miles Porter, an investigative journalist and the current love of her life. But soon after arriving, she discovers Miles is suspected in the murder of a Russian businessman. Determined to clear Miles’ name, Darby begins investigating the wealthy residents of Central Park Place, his apartment building.

In addition, Doudera will celebrate the release of “Ice Cold: Tales of Intrigue from the Cold War,” an anthology of spy-themed short stories edited by Jeffrey Deaver and Raymond Benson, the only Americans ever to pen James Bond novels. Doudera’s tale “A Neighbor’s Story,” a chilling story set in Maine in the late 1980s, was chosen from hundreds of submissions for the anthology.

“I’m thrilled to have two books to celebrate this month,” said Doudera. “I love the latest Darby and think it will keep readers guessing to the end. Being included in ‘Ice Cold’ along with writers like Sara Paretsky, Joseph Finder, J.A. Jance and many others is a huge honor, and I’m delighted. Plus it was great fun to write a Cold War spy story!”

There will be refreshments served, a cash bar, and plenty of books on hand sold by Sherman’s Book Store. For more information, visit
