These virtual events give you the chance to listen to so many of your favorite authors. Today, there’s a virtual event with Jeffery Deaver for the release of his second Colter Shaw novel, The Goodbye Man. In Deaver’s conversation with Barbara Peters, owner of The Poisoned Pen, he introduces Colter Shaw in his first book, The Never Game.

You can order both books, including a signed copy of The Goodbye Man through the Web Store.

Here’s the summary of The Goodbye Man.

In this twisty thriller from the New York Times bestselling master of suspense, reward-seeker Colter Shaw infiltrates a sinister cult after learning that the only way to get somebody out . . . is to go in.

In the wilderness of Washington State, expert tracker Colter Shaw has located two young men accused of a terrible hate crime. But when his pursuit takes a shocking and tragic turn, Shaw becomes desperate to discover what went so horribly wrong and if he is to blame. Shaw’s search for answers leads him to a shadowy organization that bills itself as a grief support group. But is it truly it a community that consoles the bereaved? Or a dangerous cult with a growing body count? Undercover, Shaw joins the mysterious group, risking everything despite the fact that no reward is on offer. He soon finds that some people will stop at nothing to keep their secrets hidden . . . and to make sure that he or those close to him say “goodbye” forever.
