Nancy Barr to Sign Latest Mystery November 14

October 23, 2009

Nancy BarrFinlandia University's North Wind Books will host a book signing event with author Nancy Barr on Saturday, November 14, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Barr will autograph copies of Page One: Whiteout, the third and latest novel in her Robin Hamilton mystery series.

Page One heroine Robin Hamilton couldn't wait to trade the isolation and cold, snowy weather of Escanaba, Michigan, for the bright lights of Chicago and a job with the Tribune.  But after her fiancé, Mitch, a suburban Chicago cop, is gunned down while on duty, Robin returns to the peace and quiet of her Upper Peninsula hometown. She soon discovers, however, that neither distance nor a job with the local paper can erase the memories, nightmares, and questions of who killed Mitch.

Page One: WhiteoutNine months after Mitch's death, Robin, along with Mitch's close friend, Nick, and Nick's cousin, Tony, embark on a dangerous journey to discover the truth about Mitch's murder. Their journey takes them from Chicago to Miami and back to the UP, where they finally discover the truth in the midst of an Upper Peninsula whiteout.

Steve Hamilton, author of the Alex McKnight mystery series set in Paradise, Michigan, says of Nancy Barr's Page One mystery series, "Her heroine, Robin Hamilton, a small town reporter with a big heart, makes this a series to watch out for!"

Barr spent 10 years working as a newspaper reporter and editor, garnering awards from the Associated Press and the Michigan Press Association.  She now is the technical communications advisor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Michigan Technological University.

The first two novels in Barr's Robin Hamilton series are Page One: Hit and Run and Page One: Vanished.
