From my research and following certain authors careers and events. Also desperately trying to source, signed copies of American authors. I discovered this AMAZING book store in the US. They regularly run book events, they sell and distribute signed copies worldwide and they even, live stream their book events!!!!!
What more could a bookworm or book blogger ask for?

The rates for P&P/shipping are reasonable and their selection of signed copies is immense! Not only that, but by offering the reader the opportunity to live view the event! You don’t miss out no matter where you happen to live!

The event I have chosen to feature on my blog, is as recently as yesterday!
Thursday 2nd November, the Poisoned Pen Bookstore welcomed two award winning, crime fiction authors, Michael Connelly & Joe Ide.

To view the events live stream click the link below:
Isn’t this an amazing idea! To catch all their events via live stream, just like their Facebook page!

Now, lets talk about the novels!

Two Kinds Of Truth by Michael Connelly

The brand new Harry Bosch thriller. Crime fiction doesn’t get any better than this

Harry Bosch works cold cases, helping out the under-funded San Fernando police department. When a double murder at a local pharmacy is called in, Bosch is the most seasoned detective on the scene.

But with experience, come the ghosts of long-forgotten crimes. A death row inmate claims Bosch framed him, and that new DNA evidence proves it.

The LAPD investigators say the case is watertight, leaving Bosch out in the wilderness to clear his name and keep a sadistic killer behind bars.

There’s only one person he can trust to help prove his innocence: Micky Haller.

As both cases tangle around him, Bosch learns there are two kinds of truth: the kind that won’t die and the kind that kills.

Righteous by Joe Ide

‘Joe Ide is the best new discovery I’ve come across in a long time’ Michael Connelly

‘In a way, the hate felt good. You were righteous, godlike, the dispenser of justice . .

Super-smart sleuth Isaiah Quintabe – IQ to his friends – has built a mostly respectable life for himself, helping out friends and neighbours when he can and taking the occasional case to make ends meet. But there is one mystery that still haunts him almost ten years later – did his brother really die in a hit-and-run or was there more to the story behind his death?

IQ has been approached by his brother’s former girlfriend Sarita, whose younger sister, an erratic DJ and gambling addict, has gone missing in Las Vegas – with a frightening loan shark, Chinese Triad gangsters, and her own deadbeat boyfriend hot on her tail. Accompanied once more by his fast-talking, don’t-call-me-a-sidekick partner Dodson, IQ heads off for the casinos and massage parlours of Las Vegas. His quest takes an unexpected turn when he meets a criminal mastermind who knows something about the murky circumstances that surrounded his brother’s death. But when Isaiah learns the truth, what will he do with it?

*Righteous is also nominated in the Goodreads choice awards 2017 for best mystery/thriller vote here:
