John Bruening and R.J. Norgard will read at Mac's on Saturday, November 2nd at 7 p.m.

Sidney Reed was Alaska’s top P.I. until the tragic death of his wife Molly. After nine months living in self-imposed retirement, he meets a beautiful woman who offers him a handsome reward to follow her fiancé late at night. Is this his chance to put the broken pieces of his life back together or will he learn that nothing in Alaska or life is ever simple? Sidney plunges into a two-year-old mystery of a big-game hunt in the wilds of western Alaska that went terribly wrong. Trophy Kill by R.J. Norgard is the first in a bold new series of Alaskan mysteries featuring Anchorage P.I. Sidney Reed.

R.J. Norgard retired from the U.S. Armed Forces and became a private investigator in Alaska. His experiences became the inspiration for the new mystery series.

John Bruening is the author of the neo-pulp novels The Midnight Guardian: Hour of Darkness and the recently published The Midnight Guardian: Annihilation Machine. After vanishing from sight for two years following the demise of criminal sociopath Nicky Diamond, The Midnight Guardian returns to the streets of Union City in the summer of 1938 to confront a Nazi saboteur with a terrifying doomsday weapon.

John Bruening is marketing communications specialist at Lincoln Electric.
