Mystery Author Roger Johns at The BookMark on 1/22

Mystery author Roger Johns will be at The BookMark on Monday, January 22 from 2pm–4pm to meet readers and sign copies of his new book Dark River Rising. In this debut novel, Baton Rouge Police Detective Wallace Hartman has had better days. With her long-time partner and mentor on medical leave and a personal life in shambles, she's called to the scene of a particularly gruesome murder: the body of a known criminal has been found in a deserted warehouse, a snake sewn into his belly. When federal agent Mason Cunningham arrives on the scene, Wallace expects a hostile takeover of the case. But when a scientist with ties to the victim goes missing from a government lab, she needs Mason's federal connections as much as he needs her local insight, and the two form an uneasy partnership. "Johns' first novel is an exciting police procedural rolled into a romantic thriller that hints of more to come" (Kirkus Review).
