Join us in welcoming Kathleen Valenti for a reading from 39 Winks, the next book in the Maggie O’Malley series.
Former pharmaceutical researcher Maggie O’Malley is losing sleep. Her best friend Constantine’s Aunt Polly is a multitasking sleepwalker who, in addition to wandering her stately home, prepares meals, folds laundry and, one winter night, stumbles across her husband with his throat slit.
It’s a rude and gruesome awakening that’s upsetting to Aunt Polly. And interesting to the police.
Maggie and Constantine work to uncover who killed the cosmetic surgery mogul and why. As they dig into the lives of those who knew him best, they discover that the truth is only skin deep and doctoring perception is a treatment with deadly side effects.
A gripping page-turner with more twists than a surgeon’s suture, 39 Winks is a tale of lies, betrayals and greed that will keep you up at night. And looking over your shoulder.
Kathleen has been writing for more than 20 years, first as a nationally award-winning copywriter and now as a mystery novelist. A firm believer that deadpan can be dead-on, she combines funny with frightening to craft page-turners of mystery and suspense.
Her debut mystery, Agatha- and Lefty-nominated Protocol, examines the flaws of technology, the price of modern medicine and the depths of greed to uncover what happens when the invisible among us disappear. In her second book, 39 Winks, protagonist Maggie O’Malley comes to the aid of her best friend’s aunt after she discovers her husband’s body during a sleepwalking episode.
Kathleen lives in Central Oregon with her family, where she pretends to enjoy running.
