Killer Mystery Trio: Sherry Harris, Colleen Shogan & Mark Bergin

Get ready for a fun (and funny) evening as we celebrate the launch of three killer mysteries - Sherry Harris' seventh A Sarah W. Garage Sale Mystery: LET'S FAKE A DEAL; Colleen Shogan's fifth Washington Whodunit: GORE IN THE GARDEN and Mark Bergin's debut crime novel APPREHENSION. Sherry, Colleen and Mark are regular visits to OMP and we're excited to welcome them back - it's going to be a fantastic evening!

As a former military spouse, Sarah Winston’s learned a little about organizing, packing, and moving. Her latest project sounds promising: a couple of tech-industry hipsters, newly arrived in her Massachusetts town, who need to downsize. Unfortunately, when Sarah tries to sell their stuff, she discovers it’s all stolen—and she’s the unwitting fence. But Sarah's problems are just beginning. Michelle, an old friend of Sarah’s from the Air Force base, is in line for a promotion—but not everyone is happy about it, and she’s been hit with an anonymous discrimination complaint. When one of the men she suspects is behind the accusations turns up dead in Michelle’s car, Sarah needs to clear Michelle’s name—as well as her own for selling hot merchandise. And she’ll have to do it while also organizing a cat lady’s gigantic collection of feline memorabilia, or they’ll be making room for Sarah in a jail cell . . .

Congressional staffer and amateur sleuth Kit Marshall hopes to reconnect with her hippie-turned-techie brother, but the reunion gets complicated when the body of a high-ranking government official is found at the United States Botanic Garden. Solving the crime becomes a family affair as Kit and her posse set out to identify the killer and unravel the complicated motive behind the murder.

Tonight a cop loses everything. But today he can save a kid.
Detective John Kelly was a solid professional until he failed to stop the murder of his kidnapped niece. Kelly’s family thinks he did nothing to punish her killer, who died before trial, but Kelly can’t confess the secret, shockingly violent thing he did, a secret about to be dug up by his fellow detectives. And he’ll be ruined. Broken, twitchy and hung over, Kelly must push past this threat and focus on a pedophile trial, a slam-dunk conviction except the defense attorney is Rachel Cohen, Kelly’s new girlfriend. Rachel just told him she’s pregnant, but she can’t tell him her job forces her to destroy him on the stand. Rachel also can’t reveal she’s investigating a twisted team of drug cops. While his friends work in secret to save him, Kelly is forced to the breaking point – and beyond.
