Meet the author

Who: William Petrocelli, author of “The Circle of Thirteen”

When: 7:30 p.m. Friday

Where: The Avid Reader, 617 Second St., downtown Davis

Bookstore owner and debut author William Petrocelli will be at The Avid Reader on Friday evening with local bestselling author John Lescroart in conversation about Petrocelli’s new book, “The Circle of Thirteen.” The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the bookstore, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.

Set in a turbulent futuristic society, “The Circle of Thirteen” follows one woman’s investigation into the dark forces unleashing chaos around the world — “a thrilling ride that will mesmerize until the end,” a news release said.

In 2082, a catastrophic explosion rocks the dedication ceremony of the new United Nations in New York City. Security director Julia Moro is on the job, chasing after the misogynistic leader of Patria, a long-disbanded international terrorist organization now being whispered about again on the streets.

This dangerous, shadowy figure has been linked to several bombing attempts and vicious attacks on women, including the Women of Peace, an organization headed by 13 bold women who have risked their lives to restore worldwide peace. As Julia’s investigation unfolds, a deep secret from her past threatens to strip her of everything she cherishes and plunge her into unrecoverable darkness.

The gripping narrative weaves back and forth in time, from an act of domestic violence that created the disturbed personality of the Patria mastermind, to the two weeks leading up to the bombing at the United Nations, to events half a century before the bombing that directly influence it.

” ‘The Circle of Thirteen’ is a remarkable tale, nothing less than visionary account of a new world order, fascinating and provocative,” Lescroart says.

Petrocelli is the co-owner, with his wife Elaine, of the famed independent San Francisco Bay Area Book Passage bookstores. As a former deputy attorney general for the state of California and a poverty lawyer in Oakland, he has long been an advocate for women’s rights. “The Circle of Thirteen” is his first novel.
