Author Event: Jeff Diamond POSTPONED

Note: Hi folks - due to the fact that calling hours for our late Police Chief George Bell are Thursday afternoon and evening, we think it best and proper to reschedule our event with mystery writer Jeff Diamond, which had been scheduled for 7 pm on Thursday. We will let you know when we have a new date set for Jeff. Our deepest condolences to Chief Bell's family, friends, and co-workers at this difficult time. He is greatly missed.


Join us for a talk by Battenkill Books favorite Jeffrey Diamond. Jeff will be discussing his new mystery, Live to Tape.

About The Book

Ethan Benson has no idea his life is about to change forever when he walks through the door of The Weekly Reporter where he's starting a new job as a senior producer, charged with managing the show's mercurial anchorman. As he settles in on his first day, he's summoned by the executive producer and assigned to a story about a rich heart surgeon who's confessed to the salacious murder of a young runaway he picked up on the gritty streets of a South Boston combat zone. At first, the story appears to be a random sex crime: the case two years old, the investigation long wrapped and mothballed, the killer convicted and locked away for the rest of his life. But as Ethan begins exploring the facts and meeting the principal characters, he unravels a sinister conspiracy by law enforcement officials, a pervasive cover-up driven by money, greed, and fear, and a dark secret hidden by the maniacal killer for decades. Steeped in the nuances of television production, Ethan takes the reader on a fast-paced journey through the underbelly of society using every skill at his fingertips to uncover the truth, while fighting his own inner demons in a bottle of Scotch. A true thriller, Live to Tape paints a raw, inside picture of broadcasting with its infighting and backstabbing that will keep readers asking for more.
