Author STEPHANIE GAYLE reads Idyll Fears, the 2nd in her LGTBQ crime series

Attention crime-novel enthusiasts!  A new series is underway, and you can meet the author, STEPHANIE GAYLE, at Porter Square Books for a reading of the second novel in her crime series: Idyll Fears.

It’s two weeks before Christmas 1997, and Chief Thomas Lynch faces a crisis when Cody Forrand, a six-year-old with a life-threatening medical condition, goes missing during a blizzard. The confusing case shines a national spotlight on the small, sleepy town of Idyll, Connecticut, where small-time crime is already on the rise and the police seem to be making mistakes left and right. ¬†Further complicating matters, Lynch, still new to town, finds himself the target of prank calls and hate speech that he worries is the work of a colleague, someone struggling to accept working with a gay chief of police.

This event is free and open to the public.
