June 14 (Sunday, 11:00 am) Robert Rotstein signs The Bomb Maker's Son. Attorney Parker Stern's estranged mother, the enigmatic leader of the cultish Church of the Sanctified Assembly, shows up unannounced and asks him to represent a man named Ian Holzner – better known as the Playa Vista Bomber. In 1975, Holzner, an anti-Vietnam War radical, allegedly planted a bomb that killed four people. He's been a fugitive from justice ever since, but now apparently wants to turn himself in. At first, Parker refuses to take on the representation. But then his mother reveals a startling secret about Holzner that all but forces Parker to take on the case. The reemergence of Holzner after years in hiding creates media attention. Then a bomb explodes and other violent acts of domestic terror mount. Is Holzner the mastermind behind these crimes? At great personal risk, Parker gradually uncovers the truth about these terrorist attacks, and at the same time discovers long-hidden, painful realities about his mother, the father he never knew, and his own past.

June 18 (Thursday, 7:30 pm) — Warwick's is hosting authors Matt Coyle and Jim Ruland to present their novels Night Tremors and Forest of Fortune. This event is free and open to the public.

About Night Tremors: Nightmares of the man he killed two years ago still chase Rick Cahill through his sleep. The memory of his murdered wife haunts him during waking hours. His private investigative work, secretly photographing adulterers, paid for his new house but stains his soul. When an old nemesis asks for his help to free a man from prison, a man he thinks is wrongly convicted of murder, Rick grabs at the chance to turn his life around. His investigation takes him from the wealthy enclave of La Jolla to the dark underbelly of San Diego. His quest fractures his friendship with his mentor, endangers his steady job, and draws the ire of the Police Chief who had tried to put Rick behind bars forever. With the police on one side of the law and a vicious biker gang on the other, all trying to stop him from freeing the man in prison, Rick risks his life to uncover the truth that only the real killer knows what happened one bloody night eight years earlier.

About Forest of Fortune: Something's not right at Thunderclap Casino... While working the floor at the casino on the ultra-rural Yukemaya Indian Reservation, Alice is visited by a mysterious woman. Alice wants to believe her new epilepsy meds are causing her to hallucinate, but the apparition keeps coming back with terrifying information about the reservation's secret history. Pemberton, a hard-partying copywriter from L.A. who was kicked out of his apartment by his fiancé, is having a difficult time adjusting to life on the rez. His new boss at the casino has severe anger-management issues, his drinking is getting out of control, and he's attracted the attention of a drug-addled biker. Lupita is no stranger to casinos, but she's never seen anything like this: a slot machine that compels people to keep playing until they've lost everything. Lupita's been on been on bad runs before, but this machine is different. This one is evil. As the three of them come to terms with the ways in which they are haunted by the past and struggle to turn their luck around, they must confront the malevolent force at Thunderclap that won't rest until old wrongs have been made right.

June 19 (Friday, 4:30 pm)Carola Dunn signs Superflous Women. In England in the late 1920s, The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, on a convalescent trip to the countryside, goes to visit three old school friends in the area. The three, all unmarried, have recently bought a house together. They are a part of the generation of "superfluous women" – brought up expecting marriage and a family, but left without any prospects after more than 700,000 British men were killed in the Great War. Daisy and her husband Alec – Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, of Scotland Yard – go for a Sunday lunch with Daisy's friends, where one of the women mentions a wine cellar below their house, which remains curiously locked, no key to be found. Alec offers to pick the lock, but when he opens the door, what greets them is not a cache of wine, but the stench of a long-dead body. And with that, what was a pleasant Sunday lunch has taken an unexpected turn. Now Daisy's three friends are the most obvious suspects in a murder and her husband Alec is a witness, so he can't officially take over the investigation. So before the local detective, Superintendent Underwood, can officially bring charges against her friends, Daisy is determined to use all her resources (Alec) and skills to solve the mystery behind this perplexing locked-room crime.

June 22 (Monday, 7:30 pm) — Warwick's is pleased to host Peter Nichols to present his new novel, The Rocks. Peter Nichols is the author of the international bestsellers A Voyage for Madmen, Evolution's Captain and three other books. He spent ten years at sea working as a professional captain and has taught creative writing at Georgetown University, NYU in Paris, and Bowdoin College. Reserved seating is available. This event is free and open to the public.

About the book: In the vein of Jess Walters' Beautiful Ruins, The Rocks is set against a color-saturated Mediterranean landscape and filled with complicated, misbehaving characters. Defying convention and employing an ingenious storytelling conceit, The Rocks is told in reverse. The result is a sophisticated literary page-turner that is psychologically gripping and emotionally wise. Inspired by a rich and eclectic life-including years as a professional yacht captain in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, as a Hollywood screenwriter and as a shepherd in Wales-Peter Nichols brings a depth of international travel and a soulful wisdom to his enchanting narrative. In the spirit of great storytellers like John Irving, Nichols masterfully combines a layered, propulsive plot with compelling and surprising characters, while wrestling with bigger questions about the nature of love and hate. Ultimately, The Rocks pushes us to consider how powerful perceived truth can be, as a bond, and as a repellent, even if it's not really the whole story; how one misunderstanding can echo irreparably through decades; and how each generation struggles to forgive what they've inherited, while making their own colossal mistakes. Set at a glamorous Mallorcan resort, amid lush olive groves and turquoise sea views, The Rocks is sure to transport any reader to an exotic destination this summer and is a perfect beach read.

June 23 (Tuesday, 7:30 pm) — Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author and Raymond Chandler award recipient Don Winslow to talk about and sign his new novel, The Cartel. Reserved Seating is Available.

About the book: From the acclaimed author of The Power of the Dog - and continuing the gripping, harrowing story of the Mexican-American drug wars that fueled it - an electrifying new novel that spans a deadly decade and brings this tale of greed and corruption, revenge and justice, heroism and deceit into the present moment. It's 2004. El Federación, the most powerful drug organization in the world, has been exploded and the Mexican drug trade has settled out into several cartels that exist in a state of tenuous accord. The patron of El Federación, Adán Barrera, is in solitary in a San Diego prison. Art Keller, the DEA agent who put him there - and killed his brother and his uncle - is living at a New Mexican monastery, tending bees, the solitude and simple truths of the place a powerful antidote to his former "life of lies." But when Barrera negotiates a deal that lets him serve out his time in a Mexican prison, a series of events is set off that undermines whatever accord existed between the cartels, and a war of unprecedented scale and viciousness erupts. And with Berrera back in the world that he once owned and will do whatever he can to own again, Keller plunges back in the game, playing, as he always did, by his own rules. What ensues is an all-out war with players - honest and corrupt, victim and perp - on every level of society on both sides of the border. But it is also Keller's personal war on drugs, his own addiction, and the question that hovers above every move he makes: is he looking for justice or for revenge?

June 24 (Wednesday, 7:30 pm) — Warwick's will host Andrew Scull to present his brilliant new book of nonfiction, Madness in Civilization. Andrew Scull is Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Science Studies at the University of California, San Diego.

About the book: The loss of reason, a sense of alienation from the commonsense world we all like to imagine we inhabit, the shattering emotional turmoil that seizes hold and won't let go – these are some of the traits we associate with madness. Today, mental disturbance is most commonly viewed through a medical lens, but societies have also sought to make sense of it through religion or the supernatural, or by constructing psychological or social explanations in an effort to tame the demons of unreason. Madness in Civilization traces the long and complex history of this affliction and our attempts to treat it. Beautifully illustrated throughout, Madness in Civilization takes readers from antiquity to today, painting a vivid and often harrowing portrait of the different ways that cultures around the world have interpreted and responded to the seemingly irrational, psychotic, and insane. From the Bible to Sigmund Freud, from exorcism to mesmerism, from Bedlam to Victorian asylums, from the theory of humors to modern pharmacology, the book explores the manifestations and meanings of madness, its challenges and consequences, and our varied responses to it. It also looks at how insanity has haunted the imaginations of artists and writers and describes the profound influence it has had on the arts, from drama, opera, and the novel to drawing, painting, and sculpture.

June 24 (Wednesday, 4:30 pm)Christopher Barzak signs The Love We Share Without Knowing. On a train filled with quietly sleeping passengers, a young man's life is forever altered when he is miraculously seen by a blind man. In a quiet town an American teacher who has lost her Japanese lover to death begins to lose her own self. On a remote road amid fallow rice fields, four young friends carefully take their own lives – and in that moment they become almost as one. In a small village a disaffected American teenager stranded in a strange land discovers compassion after an encounter with an enigmatic red fox, and in Tokyo a girl named Love learns the deepest lessons about its true meaning from a coma patient lost in dreams of an affair gone wrong. From the neon colors of Tokyo, with its game centers and karaoke bars, to the bamboo groves and hidden shrines of the countryside, these souls and others mingle, revealing a profound tale of connection – uncovering the love we share without knowing.

June 24 (Wednesday, 6:30-7:30pm) — Making a Difference: Raymond M. Wong didn't know how to connect with people until he started writing.

June 28 (Sunday, 2:00 pm)Don Wilson signs the new book Michael Connolly on The Cartel: “The Cartel is a first rate edge-of-your-seat thriller for sure, but it also continues Winslow’s incisive reporting on the dangers and intricacies of the world we live in. there is no higher mark for a storyteller than to both educate and entertain. With Winslow these aspects are entwined like strands of DNA. He’s a master and this book proves it once again.” This sequel to The Power of the Dog continues Don Winslow’s epic story of the Mexican drug war, and the United States “war on drugs” of the past four-plus decades. Don will discuss the futility of the drug war, and his film work in progress with Shane Salerno.

About the Author: Alison Singh Gee was a glamorous magazine writer with a serious Jimmy Choo habit, a weakness for five-star Balinese resorts, and a reputation for dating highborn British men. Then she met Ajay, a charming and unassuming Indian journalist, and her world turned upside down. Traveling from this life in Hong Kong to Ajay’s native village, Alison learns that he is a landed prince (sort of), but his family palace is falling to pieces. Her memoir, Where the Peacocks Sing, is a modern-day fairy tale that takes readers on a cross-cultural journey from the manicured gardens of Beverly Hills to the bustling streets of Hong Kong, and finally to the rural Indian countryside as Alison comes to terms with her complicated new family, leaves the modern world behind, and learns the true meaning of home.
