Join us on Thursday, September 30th at 7pm as local author and longtime Hudson Valley resident Lee Brown reads from his debut crime/mystery novel, Dark and discusses the independent publishing process.
DARK is a book about friendship, violence and identity. Set in 1979, the stories center on four men who have returned from Vietnam and have established a detective agency. Their city is plagued by racial hostilities and the shadow of a serial killer. The partners become targets for assassination, the result of a conspiracy they don't understand. At the same time they are forced to confront problems of PTSD in their own ranks. The stories of DARK hopscotch and weave their way through a city that seems to border on 'civilized' madness.
