Mystery fans! Join special guests Clive Cussler, Lee Goldberg, and Robin Burcell in celebrating the release of SoWest: Killer Nights, the latest volume of the award-winning anthology series by Desert Sleuths.

The gathering also celebrates the 30th anniversary of the international mystery writers organization Sisters in Crime.

SoWest: Killer Nights offers 20 tales from humor to horror in the latest edition of the award-winning anthology series. The sun descends over the mountains and valleys of the Arizona desert. Under cover of darkness, evil flourishes. If you have a hankering for tales of deception, revenge, and female empowerment, follow outlaws and lawmen, from the intense heat of the arid Rincon Mountains to a snowy Grand Canyon to Route 66 to the Navajo Nation. Not afraid of the dark? You will be.

All stories have been contributed by members of the Sisters in Crime Desert Sleuths Chapter, many of whom are multi-published authors, and writers who bring to their stories added expertise in fields such as mountaineering, tourism, and law enforcement.

Grab a flashlight. Pull the covers over your head. SoWest: Killer Nights will keep you awake until sunrise.
