Award-winning local crime novelist Matt Coyle will be at The Book Catapult to discuss and sign his new novel, Wrong Light on Thursday, April 18 at 7:30pm. Matt will be in conversation with San Diego radio host and podcaster, Jeff Dotseth. (This event has been rescheduled from January.)
Wrong Light is the next in a series of adventures with La Jolla-based private investigator Rick Cahill. The novel begins with
Naomi Hendrix’s sexy voice hovering over the radio waves, but that isn’t the only thing haunting the Southern California nights.
A demented soul is stalking Naomi, hiding in the shadows of the night, waiting for the right moment to snatch her and fulfill a twisted fantasy. When Naomi’s radio station hires PI Rick Cahill to protect Naomi and track down the stalker, he discovers that Naomi is hiding secrets about her past that could help unmask the man. However, before Rick can extract the truth from Naomi, he is thrust into a missing person’s case—an abduction he may have unwittingly caused.
The investigating detective questions Rick’s motives for getting involved and pressures him to stop meddling. While Rick pursues Naomi’s stalker and battles the police, evil ricochets from his own past and embroils Rick in a race to find the truth about an old nemesis. Is settling the score worth losing everything?
