Author Event: Karen E. Olson

Tuesday, April 25th, 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Collins Room
Karen E. Olson
Karen E. Olson is the award-winning author of the Black Hat Thriller series, which Kirkus Reviews called "electrifying." She has also written the Annie Seymour and Tattoo Shop mystery series. She lives in North Haven.

Karen will discuss her new book, Betrayed. Framed for ordering a hit on mobster Tony DeMarco, Tina Adler is forced to re-enter the shadowy world of computer hacking she thought she’d left behind. In order to clear her name, she reluctantly joins an FBI team tasked with scouring the deep web to unearth DeMarco’s darkest secrets. The trail will lead Tina to the person who framed her – but it may also reveal other secrets that she would rather not know. DeMarco might be the least of Tina’s worries. Could her true enemy be someone much closer to home?

Karen will sign copies of her new book, which will be for sale following the discussion.
