Ed Aymar: The Unrepentant
Join us for a night of thrills (and fun) when we welcome back store favorite E.A. Aymar to share from his new standalone thriller, THE UNREPENTANT! Ed's other thrillers include the novel-in-stories THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD (in which he served as co-editor and contributor), as well as YOU'RE AS GOOD AS DEAD and I'LL SLEEP WHEN YOU'RE DEAD. For someone who writes such edgy and hard-boiled thrillers, he's an awfully nice and funny guy. You'll really enjoy spending the evening with him!
Ed will read from THE UNREPENTANT accompanied by vocalist Ayana Reed (and there will be cupcakes, wine and surprises).
About THE UNREPENTANT: They never expected her to fight back…
Eighteen-year old Charlotte Reyes ran away from an abusive home only to end up tricked, kidnapped, and taken across the country by criminals. Charlotte manages to escape with the help of a reluctant former soldier named Mace Peterson, but she can’t seem to shake the gang or the crooked cop paid to bring her back—alive or otherwise. With nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, Charlotte realizes she only has one option. She has to fight.
Set in the Virginia, Maryland, D.C. triangle, The Unrepentant combines page-gripping action and black comedy, and provides a no-holds-barred, necessary examination of the dark corners of the human mind.
Praise for THE UNREPENTANT:
“Savage, nuanced, and infused with Aymar’s signature dry wit, The Unrepentant is an enjoyable hard-boiled tale that pulls no punches.” —Jennifer Hillier, author of Creep and Wonderland
