Manuel Ramos and Mark Stevens are teaming up to launch their new books on Monday, Oct. 22 at The Tattered Cover (Colfax store). The event begins at 7 p.m. Ramos’ new book is The Golden Havana  Night—A Sherlock Homie Mystery.

Stevens’ novel, the fifth in The Allison Coil Mystery Series, is The Melancholy Howl. Ramos’s protagonist Gus Corral travels to Cuba and samples the local rum as he digs into a case and Allison Coil

has always been known to savor tequila around her Flat Tops Wilderness campfires. Thus, “Rum & Tequila.” Kirkus Reviews raved about both titles. In The Golden Havana Night: “The Cuba sequences

are gripping and it’s hard to resist (this) hero.” Of The Melancholy Howl: “The brisk narrative is bolstered by stellar dialogue … A smart and indelible crime tale with skillfully interwoven storylines.”
