New York Times Bestselling Author Rhys Bowen Discusses Her New Mystery "On Her Majesty's Frightfully Secret Service"

Thursday August 3, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

A reader favorite since its first installment, the Royal Spyness Mystery series by New York Times bestselling author Rhys Bowen now takes on new relevance amidst the trending fixation with England’s royal family. Avid fans and new readers alike will be captivated by On Her Majesty's Frightfully Secret Service, the highly anticipated addition to the acclaimed series.

Join us as Rhys Bowen visits AADL to discuss this delightful new mystery and the mystery genre.

Rhys Bowen, a New York Times bestselling author, has been nominated for every major award in mystery writing, including the Edgar, and has won many, including both the Agatha and Anthony awards. She is also the author of the Molly Murphy Mysteries, set in turn-of-the-century New York, and the Constable Evans Mysteries, set in Wales. Whether starting with book one or picking up the latest adventure, fans of Downton Abbey and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries all enjoy Bowen’s witty storytelling.

In this Royal Spyness series, Lady Georgiana “Georgie” Rannoch is a most unexpected protagonist. Her position of thirty-fifth in line for the throne and penniless status renders her more down-to-earth and resourceful than your average royal. However, that is not to say our Georgie is ever one to miss out on a healthy dose of glamour and intrigue.

Georgie and her long time beau, Darcy O’Mara, are finally ready to tie the knot. But before Her Majesty the Queen will give her blessing, Georgie must first head off to Italy to act as spy—and possibly thwart secret nuptials between the Prince of Wales and the odious Mrs. Simpson. However, nothing is ever simple with royals and the fate of her country rests precariously on what she may overhear at dinner.

This event, cosponsored by Aunt Agatha’s Mystery Bookstore, includes a book signing. Books will be for sale.
