We move from Anne Louise Bannon’s DEATH OF THE CHINESE FIELD HANDS that looked at the brutal harassment of the Chinese in 19th century Los Angeles to the modern-day relentless cyber-bullying of a young African-American girl in FAILURE TO PROTECT.
The real-life suicides of two 9year-old Alabama girls propelled former attorney Pamela Samuels Young to research the circumstances of child suicides. Young found that African-American children had a suicide rate twice that of white children. This led the award-winning writer to focus her latest legal thriller on and Book 4 of her Dre Thomas and Angela Evans series.
The former journalist and retired lawyer also pens “erotically sassy” romantic suspense under the pen name Sassy Sinclair. Her alter ego will be dishing along with Victoria Thompson, Deborah Crombie, Toby Neal and moderator Paula Bernstein in the panelSome Like it Hot: Adding Romance and Sex to Your Mysteries.
