Avid Reader hosts ‘Edited for Death’ author

From page A9 | February 08, 2012 |

“Edited for Death,” a new mystery by Sacramento author Michele Drier, has been called “riveting and much recommended” by the Midwest Book Review in its January issue.

The novel follows newspaper editor Amy Hobbes as she unravels a 60-year-old theft by a young GI in Heidelberg, Germany, in the waning days of World War II.

Drier will greet readers and sign copies of the book at The Avid Reader bookstores in Davis and Sacramento on Sunday, Feb. 19.

Drier was a reporter and editor at California daily newspapers, including the San Jose Mercury News, the Lodi News Sentinel, the Manteca Bulletin and the Modesto Bee, for more than 20 years.

Award-winning mystery writer Hank Phillipi Ryan called Drier’s book “smart, classy and genuinely entertaining. The clever puzzler, taut and tense, nails the high-stakes reality of a devoted journalist on the hunt for a blockbuster story. Breaking news: this mystery is a winner!”

“Edited for Death” is also a Memorable Book for 2011 on the DorothyL mystery fan list.

Drier will be at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 19, and at The Avid Reader at the Tower, 1600 Broadway in Sacramento, at 4 p.m. the same day.

She is also the author of the paranormal romance, “SNAP: The World Unfolds” and the soon-to-be-released “SNAP: New Talent.”
