Sebastian Rotella - RIP CREW
Join us April 27th as we welcome Sebastian Rotella - on tour with his newest book RIP CREW!
ABOUT THE BOOK: From Sebastian Rotella, award-winning investigative journalist for ProPublica, comes RIP CREW (3/13/18), a sensational thriller in which a globetrotting U.S. agent hired to investigate a massacre gets more than he bargained for when he uncovers a conspiracy reaching deep into the halls of American power.
Valentine Pescatore has not always followed the rules, but his skills are prized by those who know he is a relentless streetwise investigator. When he is recruited by an old flame—now a top official at Homeland Security—to investigate the massacre of a group of women, he is told to keep his movements covert. What at first appears to be just another case of brutality in the migrant smuggling underworld is revealed to be a much more complex and perverse crime with international repercussions.
