LAST STOP IN BROOKLYN (Broadway Books; January 9, 2018), the third novel in Los Angeles author Lawrence H. Levy’s beloved Mary Handley series will be published by Crown. Levy will hold a book-signing Saturday, January 13th at 3:00PM at Barnes & Noble in Burbank (731 San Fernando Blvd). He will be doing a short reading, followed by a Q&A. Might you be interested in scheduling an interview?

 

When award-winning television writer and two-time Emmy nominee Lawrence H. Levy first introduced readers to Mary Handley in his debut novel, Second Street Station, readers immediately fell in love with her fierce wit and unparalleled sleuthing skills. We watched as Mary, the first female detective in Brooklyn, solved a high profile murder in Levy’s follow-up, Brooklyn on Fire, and now, with his third novel in the series, Levy invites readers on an extraordinary adventure that seamlessly intertwines history and mystery. We’re looking forward to Larry’s event next weekend, and I wanted to ensure this captivating mystery is on your radar should you be interested in an interview with him.

 

In THE LAST STOP IN BROOKLYN, Levy introduces readers to a cast of compelling characters, both fictional and historical. Through a plot that interweaves a mystery narrative with historical fact in a style reminiscent of Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs and Susan Ella MacNeal’s Mr. Churchill’s Secretary, Levy brings to life a bygone New York on the brink of modernity. Readers will be captivated by our beloved female sleuth as she confronts deep-seated prejudice and defies social mores in a case that forces our quick-witted, ju-jitsu-practicing heroine to question just how far these New Yorkers will go to keep their secrets.

 

I’“Levy’s talent for bringing history to life, both the everyday details and the roles of well-known figures…shine in this well-plotted and fast-paced historical mystery.” Booklist
