KATONAH, N.Y.--New York Times-bestselling suspense writer and Katonah resident Wendy Corsi Staub will stop by Little Joe's Books Wednesday night to sign copies of her new book "Shadowkiller," released as a mass market paperback in February.
"Shadowkiller" is the third book in the Harpercollins Suspense trilogy that began with "Nightwatcher" (September 2012) and was followed by "Sleepwalker" (October 2012), which recently was announced as a finalist for the 2013 Simon and Schuster Mary Higgins Clark Award.
This is the second time Staub, who lives in Katonah with her husband of more than 20 years and their two children, has been nominated for the award (the first was in 2011).
The series tells the story of Alison Taylor, a New York City woman who finds herself on the run from "The Nightwatcher," a killer who begins his spree of terror on Sept. 11.
Staub's trilogy balances two different kinds of terror: while Taylor must confront the horrifyingly random acts perpetrated by anti-American terrorists, she also must wrestle with an equally confounding brand of terror -- that of a single-minded murderer.
Staub, who has written more than 75 novels, is the recipient of the RT Bookreviews Award for Career Achievement in Suspense and four WLA Washington Irving Awards for Fiction, among many other accolades.
Staub also has co-authored a mystery series with former New York City mayor Ed Koch, who died Feb. 1, and has ghost-written for a number of bestselling authors and celebrities.
Gaylin is the author of "And She Was," the Edgar-nominated thriller "Hide Your Eyes," and its sequel "You Kill Me." Her first young adult novel "Reality Ends Here" comes out in June 2013 from Simon & Schuster.
Wine will be served at this 7 p.m. event, the store's first author event for adults.
