Join us Wednesday, November 2 at 7:30pm for a conversation with author Cherie Priest about Flight Risk, the new sequel to her delightful mystery romp through Seattle, Grave Reservations.
Inconsistent psychic Leda Foley and Seattle detective Grady Merritt return to solve the case of a missing couple with the help of one yellow dog, a fair share of teamwork, and Klairvoyant Karaoke to piece the clues together. When psychic travel agent Leda Foley is approached by a man searching for his sister, she agrees to help. She disappeared with a vintage orange car, a sack of her employer’s cash, and a grudge against her philandering husband—a man who never even reported her missing. Meanwhile, Detective Grady Merritt’s missing dog has just turned up at the Mount Rainier visitor’s center—with a human leg in his mouth. Thanks to DNA, Grady soon learns that Mr. Leg is connected to Leda’s new client, and soon the two cases are tangled. And Leda has a few ideas that might just be crazy enough to solve them both.
“Psychic Leda Foley and Detective Grady Merritt are my new favorite unlikely investigative duo. Capturing Seattle and the eccentricity of its characters perfectly, Cherie Priest’s Flight Risk is an undeniable treat.” —Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author of The Date from Hell
