Dennis Palumbo Discusses and Signs Phantom Limb: A Daniel Rinaldi Mystery Saturday, January 10th, at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena

Taking the Mystery Out of Writing Mysteries: This FREE mini-workshop demonstrates that the key to writing a good whodunnit or crime thriller is an understanding of how the characters' distinct wants and needs collide with each other. When done right, a good plot reveals character, and good characters make the plot compelling.  Whether you’re writing the coziest of British-style mystery or the edgiest of hard-boiled thriller, this informative, entertaining workshop is for you. 
Saturday, January 10th, at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena.

The workshop starts at 3 PM, followed by Q & A  and book signing
About Phantom Limb: Psychologist and Pittsburgh Police Department consultant Daniel Rinaldi has a new patient. Lisa Harland, a local girl, once made a splash in the dubious side of Hollywood before hitting rock bottom. Back home, she married one of the city's richest and most ruthless tycoons. Upon exiting his practice, she's kidnapped by an unknown assailant. Summoned to the Harland estate, Danny is forced, through a bizarre sequence of events, to be the bag man on the ransom delivery. This draws him into a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a brilliant, lethal adversary. Phantom Limb, fourth in the acclaimed series of Daniel Rinaldi thrillers, will keep readers guessing until the very last page.
