Local residents are invited to join Davis’ own New York Times bestselling author, John Lescroart, as he reads from and talks about his latest novel, “The Keeper,” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 6. The party will be at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St., and features live music by Zorelli.

All are welcome and no tickets are necessary.

“The Keeper” is described as “a riveting new novel of betrayal, corruption and murder.” When prison guard Hal Chase’s wife, Katie, goes missing from their San Francisco home, he becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance. Worse, there is blood that matches hers at the scene and the cops believe she’s been murdered. Spooked, Chase hires Dismas Hardy as his lawyer.

Hardy calls on his best friend, former homicide detective Abe Glitsky, to investigate.

Glitsky quickly discovers that Chase and Katie had a thorny marriage. Chase certainly had motive to want Katie out of his life. But as a complicated web of family and professional relationships emerges, it becomes clear that others may have desired her out of the way as well.

As Glitsky delves deeper, many details about the case seem off to him, including an incident that might be related — the death of an inmate in the jail where Chase used to work.

Determined to understand what’s going on and fearful that others may be in danger, Glitsky steps on the toes of some powerful players as he tries to make sense of what he knows. Suddenly, a tiny association brings clarity. But time is running out. Can justice be done before The Keeper obliterates the truth?

“Powerful and unputdownable, Lescroart’s ‘The Keeper’ will keep you guessing until its shockingly satisfying conclusion,” a news release said.

Lescroart is the author of 24 previous novels (16 New York Times bestsellers), including “The 13th Juror,” “Damage,” “The Hunter” and, most recently, “The Ophelia Cut.” His books have sold more than 10 million copies and have been translated into 22 languages in 75 countries.
