(Murfreesboro) Linebaugh Public Library is delighted to host Ken Vanderpool for a book signing on Saturday, August 11, from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Linebaugh is at 105 W. Main Street.
The author is a native to Middle Tennessee andwill be signing and selling installments of his Music City Murders series, published by N-Town Publishing. Titles available for sell and signing will include When the Music Dies, Face the Music, Stop the Music, and Ken's latest release Kill the Music.
Like all of Vanderpool's work, Kill the Music is a murder-mystery set in Nashville that blends the diverse culture of Music City with high-stakes detective fiction. In Vanderpool's latest installment, Jon Cole, a burgeoning singer-songwriter, struggles to balance his singing career with his life at home. While Cole begins to gain an audience and flourish, tensions between he and his wife, Brooke, grow. And just when it seems Cole's career is about to take off, tragedy strikes. He arrives home one morning and stumbles upon a crime scene. Brooke has been murdered, and Nashville Homicide Sergeant Mike Neal is on the case. But as Neal uncovers new information (and new suspects), questions about Brooke begin to surface. Just who was Cole's wife? And more importantly, what was she involved in?
An alumni of Middle Tennessee State University, Ken studied Psychology and Sociology with a concentration in Criminology. He graduated from the Metropolitan Nashville Citizen Police Academy and has frequently attended writing workshops focused on law enforcement, investigation, and criminology. This background has lent Vanderpool's work a degree of authenticity appreciated by native Nashvillians and mystery enthusiasts alike.
Vanderpool currently lives in Murfreesboro and is working on the fifth installment of the Music City Murders series, expected to release in 2019. He will be selling copies of his book for $15/each. Cash or credit card accepted. For more information, call 615-893-4131 or visit www.rclstn.org.
